Arkansas set the stage for some popular Southern TV shows

Several southern TV shows, specials and movies have been filmed here in The Natural State. Not all of them were TV shows set in the South, though; in fact, the Arkansas State Capitol is a scaled-down replica of the nation’s capitol in Washington, D.C. and has served as a stand-in on a few productions.
