If you’re like me, every night you’re stuck with the same question. ‘What should we watch?” It seems that even though I have 10 lifetimes worth of content at my fingertips, and endless tv shows, I can never really choose. So how about streaming something local. Something based in Florida. Something that while you’re watching you may recognize where they are. When we were down in the Florida Keys around Islamorada, I recognized an area from the show ‘Bloodline’. The show ‘Killing It’ clearly looks like some of those access roads in the Everglades. There’s been countless times I recognized spots from Miami in shows. What about Fort Myers and Southwest Florida?
IMDB lists 114 titles that list Fort Myers as a filming location. Most of those are movies, the tv shows on there I didn’t see any that I’d recommend. Naples had 89 titles listed. Again, no tv shows that I’d watch. But this isn’t about movies. I want to binge a series with a Florida flair.
I was inspired by Ranker, but then, of course, went on my own course. So we’ll talk a little bit about each show, maybe a clip, see what interests us. Yes, a lot of these are Miami based. But not all. There’s some Tampa, Florida Keys, and some fictional places that look a lot like places we know. Cougar Town was clearly Sarasota. So if you’re not sure what to watch tonight, here are the best tv shows that are based in Florida.
