Hardly any television drama is filmed in Southern California anymore, and its been that way for a while. Shows actually have to work really hard and do a lot of visual effects to make shows that are supposed to be set in SoCal look like SoCal. For example, 'Episodes', which shot in London for Los Angeles. The majority of TV dramas are shot in Vancouver, Toronto, and New York, with others shooting in Europe, Atlanta, Shreveport, and other cities offering the studios gratuitous tax breaks to film there. The days of many TV shows looking like Los Angeles are long gone.
