Community was set in Colorado but filmed in Los Angeles. But sometimes they wear their locations on their sleeves; for example, when they take a trip abroad to London.

One reason for productions to film over here is that they could qualify for substantial tax breaks. For example, if a TV production’s core spending is all in the UK, they

The Friends star recently released a series of short public service announcements with filmmaker Sigal Avin, each illustrating a form of sexual harassment in the workplace. During an appearance with Avin on Monday's Megyn Kelly Today, the actor explained why he decided to speak out in defense of women.
“I certainly understand why, right now in the current climate, men are reluctant to come forward and speak — which is a shame, because nothing’s going to be accomplished without dialogue. So, part of our goal is...
In a feverish age of reboots and revivals bringing back a steady stream of ’90s TV shows, there’s one beloved sitcom that hasn’t gotten the revamp-treatment: Friends. On Monday, David Schwimmer gave his take on the possibility of reuniting the Central Perk gang while promoting his new sexual harassment PSA campaign, #ThatsHarassment, on Megyn Kelly Today.

In the ad, McEntire looks nearly unrecognizable, wearing a grey wig and mustache, and Sanders’ classic glasses. The 62-year-old is also wearing a sequined white suit while singing at a good old-fashioned honky tonk.
The actor stars in four 15-second teaser advertisements that drive speculation of what the actual multi-million dollar commercial might be on Feb. 4.

“The highly exclusive ad will not be leaked to the public, and no, this is not a joke.
