Alice (CBS, 1976-1985): A show about a widowed waitress, shot in California but set at the real (and still open) Mel’s Diner on Grand Avenue.
Medium (NBC/CBS, 2005-2011): Patricia Arquette starred as real-life psychic Allison DuBois, whose character on the show was employed as a consultant for the district attorney’s office in Phoenix.
