When you think of TV Shows filmed in North Carolina what is the first show that comes to your mind? A few years ago there actually a large number of shows filmed here due to tax breaks offered to the film industry. Those tax breaks have since ended and the filming packed up to relocate elsewhere. But we aren’t simply talking about shows that were filmed in North Carolina, in fact, some of the ones on this list weren’t filmed here at all. What they do have in common, is they were set in NC. Our friends at BetCarolina conducted research and shared it with us, about the best the North Carolina TV Show of all time.
How did they come up with this list? Well, they first consulted Wikipedia’s “Television Shows Set In North Carolina” page as a starting point. That’s where the studied shows came from. From there, they created a “weighted scoring system”. This system used IMBD ratings, Rotten Tomatoes Scores from audiences and critics, as well as awards show recognition.
So while you’re favorite set in North Carolina TV Show may have made the list perhaps it didn’t rank as high as you think it should. One wildly popular show actually came in 10th on this list. And it’s one I know many many people who are die-hard fans of to this day. It ranked below several shows I’d never heard of. Although full disclosure I don’t think I’ve ever seen an episode of any show on this list. Judge me all you want. So for that reason I will spare you my uneducated opinion on the topic.
