Kansas City Ties
It’s usually kind of fun when the entertainment industry takes note of Kansas City or some nearby spot in what is commonly referred to as flyover country. Besides “Ozark”, here are a couple of other nuggets with a tie (sort of) to Kansas City.
Brockmire: A Hulu original series featuring Hank Azaria as Jim Brockmire, a sportscaster who has gone from major league glory days in Kansas City, calling play-by-play for the Royals to the basement of baseball broadcasting.
Gone Girl: Based on a book by KC native Gillian Flynn, this mystery film is set in a fictitious town of North Carthage, Missouri and filmed largely in Cape Giradeau. Ok, so it’s not exactly Kansas City, but you have to smile when Ben Affleck’s character shows up in a Boulevard Brewery t-shirt.
