Why is it that so many TV shows are set in New York or LA? Sometimes it feels like the people who make television have so little imagination that all of their stories need to be set in one of these two cities.
- I am a writer that focuses mostly on the history of television, and what went on behind the scenes of some of the greatest shows in history.
One of the things that interests me the most is how many shows have quietly been set in Seattle, Washington. It’s no secret why – because I live in Seattle, and have a major interest in local art. When most people think about Seattle on the small screen they think of the show Frasier, which was set here and ran for eleven seasons. Want to hear an interesting bit of trivia – although there were 264 episodes of Frasier, only one of them was actually shot here in Seattle. You might be curious why a guy who runs a Seattle cannabis dispensary would be so obsessed with TV shows, but it’s just my hobby. I have framed photos of Seattle celebrities, both real and imagined, set all around my cannabis dispensary. I have found that these are great conversation starters, because I feel a cannabis dispensary should be a place to meet new people and make new friends. Surprisingly enough my best selling blend of locally grown Seattle cannabis is called Greens Anatomy, a riff on the famous Seattle tv show Grey’s Anatomy. I didn’t know so many potheads were fans of that show.
