Netflix Will 'Rethink Our Entire Investment in Georgia' if Anti-Abortion Law Goes Into Effect Hollywood giant Netflix, which has a $155 billion market cap, will "rethink" its "entire investment in Georgia" should an anti-abortion law take effect, Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos said in a statement obtained by TheWrap. "We have many women working on productions in Georgia, whose rights, along with millions of others, will be severely restricted by this law," Sarandos said. "It's why we will work with the ACLU and others to fight it in court. Given the legislation has not yet been implemented, we'll continue to film there — while also supporting partners and artists who choose not to. Should it ever come into effect, we'd rethink our entire investment in Georgia.
