Music video for Ssion's song 'Inherit' features at least a few scenes filmed in KC (they used to live here)
The opening scene is at Royal Liquors on SW Blvd. There's a quick scene or two on Grand (you can see the 47 bus), and I think the cemetary scenes are Union Hill.

Queer Eye liked KC, doing another season here...

In season 3, the Fab Five visited the Jones sisters in Kansas City, Kansas. After the episode aired, their Jones Bar-B-Q business on Kaw Street gained tens of thousands of Instagram followers and sold thousands of bottles of their father’s legacy sauce.
Kinda preferred the shack look but hopefully it's what they wanted.

Have scanned through a few episodes. Looks like they base mostly out of Xroads and River Market.

Don't understand why this is being made into something like 'they're filming another season here.' They filmed all episodes at the same time, just split half between seasons 3 and 4. Wonder if they got incentives for two seasons or just one?

Also, if anyone has watched any of Season 3, they have their 'base' in the Firestone building, but the cast members actually stayed in Two Light.

A couple overhead shots of downtown KC and beyond in the new Netflix movie American Hangman. Also accompanied by several other shots of Not Kansas City to represent whatever fictional city the movie is supposed to take place in. They seem to go out of their way to keep location references very generic.

CBS this morning had a good segment on KC, it was supposed to compare the 2 super bowl cities but it was really focused on KC.
