@Matt Franklin & Bash is shot in Los Angeles. The pilot was shot here but the main actors took pay cuts so they could justify shooting it in LA and closer to their homes.

Who watches this garbage, I’m always amazed at the trash on tv and those that watch it! Take for instance: USA’s “Necessary Roughness”, what gives?
