Louisville is the largest city in Kentucky, anchoring a metropolitan area of over 1.2 million people. Home to the Kentucky Derby, it is perhaps best known for its thoroughbred horse racing, which gets plenty of media coverage. Louisville is a river city, set along the Ohio River, and its proximity to rolling countryside and other major cities like Cincinnati and Indianapolis make it a great place to find good locations for filmmaking. Numerous entertainment industry pros hail from this area, including TV anchorwoman Diane Sawyer, musicians Joan Osborne and Wilson Pickett, and actors Sean Young, Victor Mature, Maggie Lawson, William Conrad, Ned Beatty and Irene Dunn.
