From the elegant Don CeSar Resort, to the new St. Pete Pier, along with glimmering night spots, the Chihuly and Dalí museums, and a scavenger hunt across the destination, St. Pete/Clearwater was the cast member who was always ready for high-def close-ups.

Behind what we see in the finished episodes, there was a lot going on off-camera. From production staff, camera and lighting equipment to a handful of not-so-ready for prime-time (or Prime Video) visuals - there’s a lot to be said for the fine art of cinematography. Not to mention some hilarious shots of Sebastian Rocha (the lead character, Dan) duking it out with Jared on the beach. Here are a few glimpses into all the work - and fun - of making great television.
