Speaking of House of Cards, the bulk of the show is shot up the highway in Baltimore. (It might be headed to another state if Maryland doesn't ante up on tax credits.) Yes, there are shots of D.C. (look at North Capitol Street flourishing in the second image in the opening title sequence), but Baltimore actually serves as the primary filming location for Beau Willimon's political drama. Also, Freddy's BBQ Joint is fictional, as is the "Cathedral Heights" Metro station. So much for authenticity.
