The series takes place in New York City. But for the first two seasons, except for some exterior scenes, it was filmed in Los Angeles. Most of the cast and writers, including Blair Brown, actually lived in New York City. When the show moved to Lifetime from NBC, production was moved to New York City. See more »
Blair Brown and Days and Nights: Charming and Under-rated
Blair Brown has had a great deal of success, and Days and Nights was acknowledged, but both Brown and her prime-time show were still under-rated. The series - at its peak - was as good as, if not better than, Seinfeld, and its excellence was largely down to Brown. And Molly Dodd became the template for certain type of 90s "gal" - smart, sophisticated but artless. Dodd was like every other young woman one met in the big city. We did not see enough of this type on TV or in the movies, and, unfortunately, the template now - for both real life and in the media - is the shallow, self-centered and completely self-involved flibbertigibbet portrayed in everything from Sex and the City to The Hills.
