Serious question, not a troll post.

Just happened upon this forum and saw the town name. Wondered if that 80's show was based in this town?

The show was based in Hazzard county Georgia (they used 2 Zs in the name, Hazard, KY only uses one). Although I have heard that certain characters in the show (e.g. Boss Hogg) were loosely based off of actual people that lived in Hazard, KY though.

I know it was filmed in Georgia but they made up the name Hazzard county.The place really doesnt exist in Georgia only in the show.It was a big open dirt road space they made into Hazzard county. They may be one now though.Thats what i heard anyways.Maybe Google it.ive read about it before.

Although Hazzard County, Georgia was a fictional location (the early episodes of the show were filmed in Covington, Georgia and Conyers, Georgia), the real-life town of Hazard, Kentucky was a beneficiary of the show's popularity."

Yes hazard ky was the area based for the show but the producers wanted a more southern draw to the show so changed the state to Georgia, the same thing happened to the series the Walking Dead. The original state the story started was Ky (since the author is from Richmond Ky) buy since the story line had characters trying to reach the center for disease control the producers change the state from ky to Georgia due to Atlanta. Two series whose original story lines were based in ky but were changed to Georgia.

No, Hazard Ky was never a consideration. If it were it would be named "Inbred Idiots of Hazard"
