The 2006 television series Jericho is about a fictional small town in northwest Kansas that must cope with the aftermath of nuclear attacks on major American cities. The vast distance of this region from major metropolitan areas isolate Jericho from the brunt of nuclear attack. The fictional town of Jericho shares many similarities with Brewster and nearby Oakley, which is another town located in Thomas County. Fans of the show met in Oakley in 2007 for the first ever Jericho convention.
