Any exotic foreign locale in a TV series or film is, due to budget or danger to the cast, likely to actually be somewhere in Californiasuch as Kirk's Rock. For British sci-fi shows, it's "Quarry Doubling" — any desolate alien planet is usually a quarry usually the BBC Quarry within a couple of hours' drive from London — or Doubling for London.
One of the most famous examples of this is in Star Trek and all subsequent seriesin which every planet they land on looks exactly like the deserts of southern Californiathe redwood forests of Northern California, or the mountains of Central California assuming it isn't a studio cyclorama instead.
Oh, and from time to time the script might call for a beach.
This is actually one of the main reasons why Hollywood and the Los Angeles write around portland xy zed became the capital of American filmmaking. The varied locales within two or three hours drive desert, beach, mountains, farm landalong with the consistent year-round good weather, made Southern California ideal for making movies.
California is not the only place that has done this. The Canadian province of British Columbia, between the metropolis of Vancouver and its vast mountain forests and oceans nearby, has become the third-largest film production center in North America thanks partly to its ability to stand in for the Pacific Northwest usually Seattle or Portland or any small, rural town in the northern half of the US.
Another Canadian city, Torontohas doubled for cities such as New York City and Chicago more times than it has actually represented itself.
Utah has been Vulcan, Mars, and the Old West. Georgia and Louisiana have represented not just the Old South, but also modern Midwestern suburbia, northern industrial cities, and the jungles of Africa and South America. State and national governments know this, and frequently offer generous tax credits to lure film and television productions to their locales, to the point where even California itself has started offering its own tax incentives to keep Hollywood filming near, well, Hollywood.
The main reason is that a production crew not only includes a cameraman, director and actors; there are usually at least two or three dozen people working on prepping a location, providing the appropriate light and transporting the equipment to film a scene.
Moving everyone, especially on a weekly television budget, is sometimes implausible even if said location is willing to permit filming.
Other times, the actual location is not an option for security and or political reasons. Even in the most general sense, many cities are adverse to blocking off the entire downtown for weeks on end, and so some sequences are film in piecemeal, getting a couple vintage shots of actors near landmarks and then finding a more practical location to film the rest.
Another time that this may be necessary is if the original location and this is true especially for period pieces no longer looks like what it did in story. While obviously it might be a bit difficult filming an ancient Rome in Rome itself, as the city resembles Caesar's city in name only, even the London of today is quite different from the London of Victorian times through the early part of the twentieth century thanks in no small part to the Luftwaffe.
Conversely, filming in a story set Twenty Minutes In The Future will have its own problems because to make a location seem futuristic would require a lot of construction and visual effects anyway. In many cases, the average viewer may not be familiar with the location in question, but it can end up bugging those viewers who have been or actually live in those locations.
Also take into account that any production wants to Shoot the Moneyand may choose a more scenic place to film instead of the less impressive place it actually is. This can have a very odd effect the first time one visits southern California. Upon seeing for the first time those scrub-covered hills and twisty roads, one gets a truly unearthly sense of deja vu.
