This Map Shows Famous Movies & TV Shows Set In Each U.S. State

Ever wondered where your favourite US-based film or TV show was set? Here they are on a handy map. Spoiler: Nebraska is just Nebraska.

Last year I was asked to try and label each US State on a map from memory. I didn’t want to, so added a TV show or movie from each state instead. Now I’ve made a hi-res version.

For states with an abundance of options, like New York, Texas, or California I’ve picked one or two favourites. For others, like Arkansas and North Dakota, I’ve picked the only thing available (next to nothing is set in North Dakota. Even the movie Fargo, named for a North Dakotan town, is set in Minnesota).


Here’s a ~slidey thing~ version with the states labelled…

In places I’ve tried to drop the logo close to the area of action within that state, but for the most part I put them where they fit. Here are some close ups:
