Why Is A&E’s ‘The First 48’ Always Filmed in Tulsa?

It might seem like The First 48 is always in Tulsa, but Tulsa Homicide has only been featured since 2015. They debuted in Season 16, Episode 2, entitled “Ringside Seat” and featuring Det. Jason White investigating a shooting at a motel.

Over the last seven years, Tulsa has become a huge part of why The First 48 is still on the air. Viewers have embraced the team, which includes (but is not limited to) Det. White, Det. John Brown, Det. Mark Kennedy, Sgt. Nathan Schilling and Lt. Brandon Watkins.
