10 Best Original Television Shows Set in Houston

I think even the most fervent fan of our city would agree that Houston has something of a problem projecting an identity to the rest of the nation. We're just not seen as a place with a really iconic personality or look so it's rare that we are used as a location in fiction. However it does sometimes happen in films and books. Rarer are non-reality shows set here, but there have been a few over the years. Such as...

10. As For Me and My House This is a show that tried real, real hard. It was definitely a Houston story, dealing with blended families that move in together after moving to the city in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Jalene Mack was the main star, and she brought out her usual energy as a successful lawyer who doesn't have much time for her family. I'd like to say the show was a success simply because every aspect of the production was derived from Houston, but it aired just briefly on KNWS and then faded into obscurity.
