Worldwide Stages LLC (WWS) has officially unveiled its a massive entertainment complex in Spring Hill, Tennessee, just south of Nashville.
WWS has already provided facilities to multiple facets of the entertainment industry, including tour rehearsal spaces for artists and production facilities for diverse content creators to produce live-streaming events, music videos, commercials, episodic television series and feature films.
After aquiring the former world headquarters of Saturn, WWS invested millions of dollars into a complete renovation. The entertainment campus provides thousands of square feet in luxurious production facilities, greenrooms and professionally decorated artist suite; a variety of stages ranging in scale for music tour rehearsals, TV and film production; decorated gathering spaces for meetings or events; a private 70-seat theater with state-of-the-art audio equipment; acres of private parking for personnel and production equipment with easy access to major Interstate highways; and onsite medic and security personnel.
“It feels like opening ‘Disneyland,’ but for entertainment production professionals and A-list stars,” shares Kelly Frey, CEO & President of WWS. “The first word we hear from artists and production companies visiting our facility is ‘Wow.’ We wanted to create not just a functional production environment but also a safe haven for A-list entertainers. We even designed a Speakeasy around a vintage 1920’s era solid wood bar that our guests can use for meetings, events or relaxation onsite.”
Frey adds, “Forget about the warehouses and industrial soundstages of the past. WWS is much more like a five-star hotel venue that happens to have the soundstages and ancillary production space A-list performers and international production companies need to produce their entertainment content securely and in comfort.”
“The opening of WWS signals Tennessee’s trending growth and competitiveness in the entertainment sector on both a local and national level,” says Bob Raines, Executive Director for the Tennessee Entertainment Commission. “WWS will not only leverage Tennessee’s internationally renowned music industry, but also service the influx of television and motion picture professionals interested in producing the next generation of entertainment content.”
WWS is already planning expansion, adding additional soundstages onsite in Spring Hill in response to industry demand while investigating expansion to other entertainment-centric cities in need of the luxury-branded facilities curated by WWS.
