Morning wars (Apple TV +)
What: The Italian refuge of disgraced anchor Mitch Kessler.
Or: Pasadena, California.
The supposed Lake Como villa where Mitch (Steve Carell) is hiding after being fired over his sexual assault allegations isn’t in Italy at all – it’s actually Villa del Sol d’Oro in the Sierra Madre mountains of Los Angeles, just outside of Pasadena. In real life, the property is a Catholic high school and also featured in the iconic Guns N ‘Roses November Rain music video – which, let’s face it, is way cooler than Morning wars.
Great (Stan *)
What: Winter Palace of Catherine and Peter.
Or: Italy, England and, surprisingly, not Russia.
For a series focused on the longest-ruling female leader in Russian history, GreatThe mantra of “sometimes a true story” extends to its locations, which, while breathtakingly opulent, are decidedly not Russian.
The main substitute for the Winter Palace of Catherine (Elle Fanning) and Peter (Nicholas Hoult) is La Reggia di Caserta, an 18th-century palace located half an hour from Naples and famous for its wonderful gardens, while various plans interns were filmed. in England at Hatfield House in Hertfordshire and Castle Howard in Yorkshire. The vodka is surely Russian, however – huzzah.
Emilie in Paris (Netflix)
What: Emily’s apartment.
Or: Latin Quarter of Paris.
Sure, it’s a cluttered walk-up with no air conditioning that’s been polluted by the obnoxious energy of Emily (Lily Collins), but it’s still full of classic Gallic charm. The real building is located on Place de l’Estrapade in Paris in the fifth arrondissement, on a small square housing a pastry shop whose head baker is surely starting to tire of being seduced by young American tourists in garish outfits.
The white lotus (frenzy)
What: The Lotus Blanc seaside resort.
Or: The Four Seasons Resort Maui in Wailea, Hawaii.
For all those who have finished The white lotus jonesing for a trip to the fictional resort’s Hawaiian counterpart, a valuable lesson: perhaps don’t furiously insist on the Pineapple Suite, lest you want to find an embarrassing surprise in your suitcase.
Either way, there is no real Pineapple Suite – according to travel magazine City CountryIt was just a tacky redecorated version of the Four Seasons’ Lokelani Presidential Suite, which rents for $ 26,000 ($ 36,300) a night. At that price, you would probably also become a horrible titled tourist?
What: Dutton Ranch.
Or: Darby, Montana.
It’s not as though none of us necessarily want to spend time with maniacal Patriarch John Dutton (Kevin Costner) at his hellish family ranch, but the allure of a log cabin surrounded by a landscape of crisp mountain is strong.
Located just hours from Yellowstone National Park in Montana, the actual property where the ridiculously popular series is filmed is the Chief Joseph Ranch and surprisingly requires reservations for the holidays (when not booked due to the production). Imagine walking on your porch for morning coffee and seeing Costner walk past a cowboy hat and blue jeans. It’s every grandmother’s (and Trumpist’s) dream.
What: Joe and Love’s suburban home.
Or: 6301 Orion Avenue, Van Nuys, California.
With its unassuming white picket fence and pristine shrubs, this really is the perfect home for two sociopaths (and their newborn baby) looking to reinvent themselves as a happy suburban ideal.
The actual property, built in 1951, features four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and the same stone kitchen island that made you so jealous of the Love (Victoria Pedretti) chops on the show. But you will need to set up your own dungeon in the basement for unannounced captives.
Master of None (Netflix)
What: Denise and Alicia’s cottage in upstate New York.
Or: A sound stage in East London.
Perhaps the most depressing TV magic reveals, it turns out that the delightfully crowded two-story farmhouse of Denise (Lena Waithe) and Alicia (Naomi Ackie) in upstate New York is a complete make-up. , built on a sound stage in London and made to look like the kind of dwellings you might find in Phenicia, the sleepy village of the Catskill Mountains.
Still, you might as well take inspiration from the stunning interior design and create your own soulful dining room for rustic pasta dishes and an in-house laundry room where you can happily dance on Black Box. everyone everyone.
