Tyler Perry Officially Launches ' Tyler Perry Studios ' in Atlanta

Acquired by Tyler Perry in 2015, the 330-acre lot is located in the heart of Atlanta on the historic grounds of the former Fort McPherson army base. The major motion picture studio, one of the largest production facilities in the country, showcases forty buildings on the National Register of Historic Places, twelve purpose-built sound stages, 200 acres of greenspace and a diverse backlot. Tyler Perry Studios Fort McPherson is the fourth expansion in the lineage of the writer, actor, producer, director, and philanthropist’s creative empire.

Fort McPherson was an active Army Base from 1885 until 2011. At the time of its closure, the base was one of the largest command centers in the U.S. military. The installation was home to the U.S. Army Forces Command (FORSCOM), which is responsible for the command and control, unit training, and operational readiness of the active army. The base also served as headquarters for the U.S. Army Reserve Command, the U.S. Army Central, and the U.S. Army Installation Command for the Southeast region.
