New TV sitcom set in Boise

A brand new show debuted Tuesday on Fox 9 and it's set right here in Boise. "The Grinder" stars Rob Lowe and Fred Savage. Lowe plays an actor who played an attorney on TV, but when the series ends he heads back home to the City of Trees where his brother, Fred Savage, is an actual lawyer. Savage came and spent some time in Boise this summer to learn a little more about the city. The  Chamber of Commerce is excited about this showcase for Boise. "Hey, look what the 'Mary Tyler Moore Show' did for Minneapolis and the twin cities. Look what 'Cheers' did for Boston," said Boise Metro Chamber of Commerce's Bill Connors/KNIN Fox 9. More here.

Question: What kind of TV show would be set in North Idaho?
