Is Long Beach, California, the new South Beach?

Categories: Culture

This is the question posed today by a Reuters wire story.
It says that three TV shows that are supposedly set in Miami -- Dexter, Nip/Tuck and CSI Miami -- all routinely film in Long Beach. So keep this in mind tonight when you're watching Horatio Caine do his thing on CSI.

"The way the town is built, I can pretty much duplicate some of the feeling of South Beach in Long Beach," said Don Tardino, a producer on CSI: Miami. OK, but what about those Southern California mountains?

Still, the writers of CSI try to embody the spirit of Miami's wackiness. Tonight's episode promises to solve the murder of a politician who supports eminent domain. --Tamara Lush
