Takes Place In Detroit

Post by sfpcc1 » Mon Nov 22, 2021 7:08 pm

This TV there is something interesting going on; There are three network shows that takes place in Detroit, Bob (Hearts) Abishola (CBS), The Big Leap (Fox) and The Reboot of The 4400 (CW). Also they are all on Monday night. Has anyone else noticed this? I know these shows are not shot in Detroit but in large shows are largely shot in only four different locations: LA, New York, Vancouver, Toronto.

The 1st show listed (Bob...) is the only one listed I've seen, and like it. Did not know it was write-set in Detroit... could be Drew Carey's back yard in Cleveland, for all I've seen of it.

If expanded to 'Takes Place in Michigan', the new MTV series "Mayor of Kingstown" on Paramount is set in a made-up Michigan town of (you guessed it) Kingstown, but the actual locations are in Ontario, sort of near Taronna (Kingston, & Brantford).

The first couple of episodes of "Bob" (CBS) had characters riding in subways. By about the 3rd episode, they had switched to buses.
