I don't know for sure, but outside of establishing shots of Kelly's and possibly a few other locales I don't think M&E ever actually did any filming in the city.

Also within the first 40 seconds of the first episode, an unseen tow truck dispatcher advises Eddie of an accident on "35W" which basically turned me off the show forever. What is this, Minneapolis? Dallas? Do ten seconds of "I LOOKED AT A MAP!" research ffs.
I legit feel like TV/movie people are allergic to maps.

Several years ago, NBC had the made-for-TV movie "Asteroid." An asteroid is headed for Kansas City. It hits the "Freeman Dam", causing water to flow down the mountain and flood downtown Kansas City (downtown Denver shown). There was major damage at "3rd & Olive" and at "24th and Market Street". To help, the government stations people at the "Kansas City Military Base."

"The Day After" had more of a clue than this.

So, if we go with the street locations above and assume that they were actually referring to St. Louis instead of Kansas City, "3rd & Olive" is basically the entrance ramp to I-44/I-55 South, right next to the Arch. "24th and Market" is actually Market and Jefferson.

If this was their intent, then I applaud the judicious renovation of the old A.G. Edwards building with an asteroid. :)

But they still need to look at a map. They don't even have the street locations in St. Louis right.

They only used stock video footage of KC throughout, but Asteroid was filmed in Denver. I never understood why they didn't just set the location in Denver - the location really didn't provide any additional context to the plot unless the producers (or whoever) felt more people could relate to a Midwestern city than to Denver.

Jason Kander on CNNs Jake Tapper round table hour today with several references to KC and his race for mayor. Suggested that they have a whole hour talking just about Kansas City and gave some very good advice about Democrats looking to win races in the Midwest and other red states.

Don't know if any of you have been watching Welcome to Waverly on Bravo! Pretty standard, yet low key and respectful for Bravo, "reality" show about 7 coastal people, liberals, gays, lesbians, middle eastern, African American from south Chicago and so on, spending 6 weeks living and working in Waverly Ks. Was filmed in spring 2017. Really surprisingly positive with a few moments of trumped-up drama (again Bravo!) Just four one hour episodes all airing this week.

Then.....then, and it's hard to recount this. The two chefs are doing an elevated diner for their going away time; and, this is hard for me to even retell.

OK...OK...deep breath.

They went to get food at Cosentino's down by the power and light...and...DAMNT IT...the graphic said they were in Kansas City, KS! I mean what the FLORP.

And they totally made Cosentino's look like a bunch of rube's.

"OMG You can't get Thai Chilies in Kansas"

"Don't even have ideas in Kansas because it won't be a reality when you go to the grocery store"

At the meat counter: "Do you have pork belly?"

From off screen, "Pork who?"

Chef "oh God".

No fucking way that happened. I was joking about the KCK fuck up but now I'm actually pissed.

Kansas City is the setting of a terrorist store-bombing in first few moments of the movie Sicario: Day of the Soldado starring Josh Brolin, Benicio del Toro, Catharine Keener, and Matthew Modine.

No scenes of Kansas CIty appear in the film. The establishing shots for the store bombing here were filmed in Albuquerque.
Storyline

In this adventure/drama, FBI agent Matt Graver (Josh Brolin) enlists a mysterious operative to help investigate a Mexican drug cartel that has been smuggling terrorists into the U.S. Things escalate when the daughter of a top kingpin is abducted, forcing Graver and his partner to re-evaluate their mission.
