DEXTER Filming Locations - hundreds of actual places where the TV show Dexter was filmed.

The location: Deb driving, trying to phone Dex

Q. What is it supposed to be on the show?

    A. A public street.

Q. Where is it supposed to be on the show?

    A. Somewhere in Miami.

Q. When did we see it on the show?

    A. In Episode 5, of Season 8, "This Little Piggy".

    In this very short scene, Debra is driving in her car and tries to phone Dexter.

    Dex is in the middle of trying to find Yates, while arguing with young Harrison about watching cartoons.  Dex is angry with Deb, so he ignores her call.

    She leaves a message, saying "Can we talk?"

Q. What is it actually in real life?

    A. A public street.

Q. Where can I find it in real life?

    A. Look at the houses passing in the background, as Deb makes the phone call.

    This driving scene was shot on Beachwood Drive, in the Hancock Park district of Los Angeles.

    To be more specific, Deb's car is headed north on Beachwood, with the camera looking at the west side of the street.

    They are driving through the 200 block of N. Beachwood, just south of Beverly Blvd (where they filmed the scene of Deb & Dex speeding to rescue Vogel).

    (This scene is very similar to a later driving scene where Deb tries to phone Vogel, only to learn later that Vogel has been kidnapped.  That scene was shot in the same neighborhood, only two streets to the east.)

    Here are a few specific examples from Deb's drive:

    The house above is at 221 N. Beachwood Drive.

    The house above is at 229 N. Beachwood Drive.

    The house above is at 233 N. Beachwood Drive.

    Here is an aerial photo of the street.  Here is a Google StreetView.
      And here is a map link.

    knock on their doors, or do anything that might disturb the residents. ]

Q. How the heck did you figure out where it was?

    A.  I knew they had been filming in the Hancock Park area for this episode, and the homes look like Hancock Park.

    So my only problem was finding the exact street and block.  And it wasn't easy.  Hancock Park is a fairly large area, when you have to look at every single house...  But using Google StreetView and Bing aerial photos, I eventually found the street from the second Deb driving scene, but this first one eluded me for a while longer.  Eventually, going street-by-street, I found it.
