Bet Colorado compiled a list of the top television shows that are based in Colorado.

Did you know these shows were based right in our backyard?

#3 - Community

Community, the popular NBC sitcom, is based in Colorado. Our favorite community college students attend Glendale Community College. The creator, Dan Harmon, based the show around his own experience at Glendale Community College.

A Community movie is on the way with most of the original cast.

#2 - South Park

Since South Park premiered in 1996, the often controversial show has made many headlines.

South Park is not an actual city in Colorado. However, the town of South Park is inspired by Fairplay, Colorado. The creators, Matt Stone and Trey Parker were once students at the University of Colorado. 

#1 - The Last Of Us

The video game-turned-HBO television show was one of the biggest shows of the past five years. The Last of Us follows two characters, Joel and Ellie, who navigate the world after a significant outbreak that turns humans into the "infected." AKA zombies.
Joel and Ellie make a trip from Boston to reunite with his brother Tommy, who is at a camp in Wyoming.
Joel and Ellie make their way through Colorado, and part of the show is located at Eastern Colorado University, which has many similarities to Colorado State University.
