I don't know about you but I'm naturally a couch potato. I'm probably a little more of a couch potato since quarantine started. I've been binge watching shows non-stop. I actually just finished the final season of the 90's ER. Yeah, I know there's 15 seasons. Mind ya business. So that got me thinking, are there any TV shows shot or based in Michigan? Turns out, there are.

Here's a list of 8 TV shows you may or may not have known were set in Michigan!

Freaks and Geeks 

I'm actually really bummed that there's only 1 season. Freaks and Geeks was set in a fictional suburb of Detroit called Chippewa, Michigan. It's about two separate high school clique's in the 80's.

Sister Sister

I never knew this and this show was my favorite back in the day. Sister Sister was 6 seasons long and set in the Detroit area. It's about twin sisters who were separated at birth that run into each other and convince their adoptive parents to move in together.


Undateable was set in Ferndale, Michigan. It kicked off in 2014 and follows the life of a group of friends and their dating struggles.

Run of the House

Based in Grand Rapid, Run of the House only had one season. The show follows four siblings who are left to run the house when their parents move across the country.


Shot in Detroit, Martin was 5 seasons long from 1992-1997. Martin is sitcom that follows a radio hosts life and relationships he has.

The Incredible Dr. Pol

Having worked in the veterinary field, this is one of my favorite shows. It's based in Weidman, Michigan. The show follows Veternarian Dr. Pol and his clinic around the community.

Ash vs Evil Dead

It's set in Michigan and kicked off in 2015. Main character Ash Campbell tries to save mankind from a deadly plague 30 years after "Evil Dead" the movie. *Warning: Profanity*

Home Improvement

Based in Metro Detroit, Home Improvement was shot in 1991-1999. The sitcom follows the life of Tim Taylor and his family. Taylor is TV host of a Home Improvement show.
