Maryland Film/TV Showdown: Vote now!

It's March Madness time, and that means an excuse for our favorite Baltimore movies and TV shows to duke it out. Yes, some are more iconic than others (props if you've seen "Family Rules"), but it wouldn't be March Madness if the underdog didn't have a fighting chance.

The criteria: movies, TV shows and miniseries that take place in or were filmed in Charm City. We'll update the bracket with every tournament round, so come back to vote.


Just remember, "You come at the king, you best not miss."

These are our four regions; each link leads to a breakdown of contenders and our voting polls:


• The Avon Barksdale Region

Best of Baltimore TV: Shows that take place in Baltimore

• The Clarice Starling Region

Major Maryland-based films: Mainstream films that take place in or were shot around Baltimore

• The Divine Region

Best of John Waters: His 16 feature films and shorts

• The Boogie Region

Maryland filmmakers/Maryland-based films: Filmmakers who have lived or studied near Baltimore, with films that take place in the area
