* ''Series/UnbreakableKimmySchmidt'' takes place mostly in Manhattan and exploits it heavily. After being rescued from the bunker, Kimmy is taken to be on ''Today'' on NBC and decides to stay in New York to make a new life for herself. She moves in with Titus, with Lillian as their landlady, in an unnamed neighborhood in Upper Manhattan. Titus aspires to sing on Broadway and most of Jacquelyn's material centers around her being a sheltered Park Avenue wife and later trying to grow out of it. Lillian has never left Manhattan until the end of season one and can't drive, and is still hoping to see the completion of the 2nd Avenue Subway.

The bias is especially obvious when characters speak about ''specific'' parts of New York casually (''everybody'' in the world knows which subway train you have to take to get to 115th street, right?), while the entirety of Middle America usually consists of about ten distinct places, or when any group of people naturally includes a [[YouHaveToHaveJews Jewish person]], because isn't one eighth of the population ''everywhere'' Jewish? (And even in NYC itself, the Jewish population is exaggerated; all things being equal, you are much more likely to meet a person of Irish, Italian, African, or Puerto Rican descent.)
