Location, Location

A pair of professional location scouts make their living all over the map as they scout and manage locations for TV commercials. They’re intimately familiar with landscapes dangerous and beautiful, and every motel on Route 66. Starting their own business together will test their business savvy, their marriages and especially their friendship.

These intrepid entrepreneurs come into direct competition with their former boss, a smarmy villain who attempts to destroy their fledgling company and succeeds in stealing one of their disgruntled wives.

As the business they’ve named “Sky’s The Limit’ takes off, they’ll learn there are more important things in life than just “location.” All episodes are inspired by real experiences in the commercial production industry.
