I didn’t grow up in Los Angeles but I saw plenty of it on television. I didn’t realize how much of it I was exposed to until I moved here. I’d drive down streets and recognize houses, apartment buildings or parks from shows that I knew and loved. Of course plenty of it pretended to be somewhere else, but there were shows that often reveled in Los Angeles and all its nooks & crannies.
My neighbor filed a story this week for the LA Times on just this subject…oh, and about Remington Steele, too: Following in her fedora.
