When viewers tune in to see the premiere of “Zoo” Tuesday night on CBS, much of what they will see was shot in New Orleans and around Louisiana — even when it looks like Africa, Paris or Rio — reports WWL-TV.

The new series, premiering Tuesday at 8 p.m. and based on the James Patterson novel of the same name, centers on an American zoologist trying to figure out why animals across the world are attacking humans.
