* The [[http://articles.latimes.com/1987-02-17/local/me-3845_1_twilight-zone-site Indian Dunes ranch]], just north of Six Flags Magic Mountain, had a busy career in the 1970s and 80s, mainly doubling for Vietnam but it could also stand in for any jungle terrain. The Santa Clara River that runs in the middle of it easily qualifies for [[HeyItsThatGuy Hey It's That Stream]] status. The fact that it looked exotic but was on the outskirts of the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Studio_zone Thirty Mile Zone]] made it so popular. But the fatal accident during the shooting of ''Film/TwilightZoneTheMovie'' cast a pall over the site, and the increasing use of location shooting hurt the site's revenues even more, so it permanently closed to film production in 1990.

* LampshadeHanging: The North American version of ''QueerAsFolk'' (which was filmed entirely in Toronto, especially in the city's {{Gayborhood}}: Church-Wellesley Village) once had its characters point out the similarity of a Toronto street to a street in their hometown UsefulNotes/{{Pittsburgh}}.

* ''MurderSheWrote'' was set in New England, but filmed in Mendocino County, California, which often meant the ocean was on the wrong side.

* ''PrettyLittleLiars'' is set in the fictional Pennsylvania town of Rosewood and filmed on location... in California. (Unlike many, many examples of this kind, this is actually mentioned on the show's end credits.)
* ''{{Roswell}}'' heavily featured KirksRock for the wilderness scenes, while the town itself was actually Covina, CA.
* ''Silk Stalkings'' was set in Palm Beach, Florida, but filmed mostly in San Diego. See also TheMountainsOfIllinois.

* An odd web comic exists in ''AnsemRetort''. For some background, it's a sprite comic based off ''KingdomHearts: Chain of Memories''. For the most part, backgrounds for that game are used for scenery. There are two instances of a background being repeated:

* The 1996 version of ''Film/ThePhantom'' (with Billy Zane in the purple suit) had WarnerBros Movie World on Queensland's Gold Coast and the city of Brisbane doubling for various US locations.

* ''Series/{{Daredevil 2015}}'' and the other three Marvel {{Netflix}} shows (''AKA Series/JessicaJones2015'', ''Series/LukeCage2016'' and ''[[Comicbook/ImmortalIronFist Iron Fist]]'') are shot on-location in New York City. This was so notable (especially for the MarvelCinematicUniverse), that the city actually held a huge press conference to announce its partnership with Marvel. However, these shows are set in Hell's Kitchen on the west side of Midtown Manhattan. These scenes are thus filmed in neighborhoods around northern Brooklyn because real life Hell's Kitchen is gentrified and Hell's Kitchen from the comics and shows was a crime-ridden cesspool (the in-universe explanation in the Netflix shows being that the Chitauri invasion in ''Film/TheAvengers2012'' caused a lot of damage in Hell's Kitchen and undid a lot of this gentrification).

* Most of TylerPerry's movies avert this (they all take place mostly in Atlanta), probably because he himself is from Atlanta and owns a studio there. In fact, Madea's house in the films is an actual house that he owns in Atlanta.

* Creator/RobertAltman's ''That Cold Day in the Park'' (1969), which is usually considered the first "Hollywood North" production in Vancouver, is in fact set in Vancouver.[[note]]More for convenience than anything else. It was based on a novel set in Paris and the screenplay had changed the locale to London[[/note]]
