‘Heels’ is a drama series about two brothers who try to carry on their father’s iconic wrestling legacy while dealing with their own demons. Set in the small town where the sport is central, the show follows the two central characters as they each try to convey the spirit of their father’s memory. A colorful array of characters in the form of wrestlers and their fans make the show an energetic affair, which is balanced with a small-town aesthetic that underscores the importance of the family-owned wrestling promotion and its feasibility to become national. Are you curious where ‘Heels’ was filmed? We’ve got you covered.
Heels Filming Locations
“Heels” is set in a small Georgia town and filmed in multiple locations across the state. Shooting for Season 1 took place mainly on location, but was delayed a few times for various reasons. Production initially started on February 3, 2020, but was soon interrupted by the Covid 19 pandemic. Lead actor Stephen Amell reportedly suffered from the infection, but thankfully recovered. He also reportedly injured himself during filming, as he did many of the stunts required for the show himself.
Shooting for Season 1 reportedly resumed on September 14, 2020 and concluded around April 10, 2021. Let’s take a closer look at the show’s specific filming locations.
The show is set in the fictional town of Duffy, Georgia, where the two brothers run the local professional wrestling promotion – the Duffy Wrestling League. Filming for the show takes place primarily in Atlanta, in Fulton County, Georgia.
With many scenes centered around wrestling, much of the location filming is seemingly indoors. This is why the show, which is set in a small town, could probably film in a big city like Atlanta. Filming in the big city is also helpful for the production because of the extensive facilities available.
The relatively smaller town of Cumming, in Forsyth County, Georgia, is seemingly used to give the show much of the small-town aesthetic. One of the show’s main filming locations in Cumming is the Cumming Fairgrounds, which is located at 235 Castleberry Road. The production crew, along with multiple trailers, were reportedly sighted around the fairgrounds, and multiple scenes were also filmed around and possibly inside the fairgrounds at night.
