    I'm actually looking forward to this series– it feels like taking American expat communities to the next level. Do we have any idea what country they'll be putting Americatown in? For some reason, I'm thinking Dubai…

      I'm also really looking forward to this. Thinking about it, I'd love to see it done in Shanghai -it's already the world's most futuristic-looking city – but I know that would look too hackneyed (the straight Chinatown swap). My second choice would be Manchester. Having a poor subculture clashing against a rich ingrained mainstream would work especially well because all the characters speak English (man, would this help!) and also because Manchester has a history of this happening (the Indian/Pakistani immigrants since the 1960s have radically changed that city and you would get this great notion of the white Americans being confused and new to the idea of poverty, the white English staying aloof from them, and the recent Muslim immigrants having to help the white Americans. Imagine the storylines this would create!I really think they are going to have to set it in an English-speaking country (for obvious dramatic reasons) so my third choice would be India – in particular, some Indian city that most of us haven't heard of like Thiruvananthapuram (bigger than Boston according to Wikipedia!)This could potentially be my favorite series ever, or is that the wine talking?- Ryan

    Glenn, Actually, Dubai isn't a country. I don't mean is ur case but 4 me, I think inmigration would be a hard task to u.S. citizens due their poor knowledge about geography (excluding their own country, obviously)
