There have been many TV shows and movies based in Washington, D.C. over the years, but not all of them actually film in the nation’s capital — particularly if the president’s home is involved.
Arguably the most famous show involving the White House, “The West Wing,” created a close-to-accurate replica of the offices and hallways in Burbank, California (just outside of Hollywood).
But, surprisingly, the only full-sized permanent replica of the Oval Office is located in Norfolk, England (outside Norwich). First built for the 2018 film Watergate, it’s still being used regularly for international shows and films that focus on American politics.
