A new season of HBO's neo-noir drama "True Detective" premiered on Sunday.  The show is set in Southern California, with a new cast of characters, played by Vince Vaughn, Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams and others.  KPCC has a new podcast about the links between the show and real places and events here, told by our journalists and other special guests.  Here's Episode #1; get it in iTunes and Stitcher.

We know a lot about Los Angeles here, but sometimes even we get stumped. After the opening credits the very first scene is an open field - you can see it above. There's wooden stakes driven into the ground, some pink ribbons, too. Maybe it's a construction site, maybe it's a crime scene. But there's no other information we can find so far.  

Can you name that field?  Tweet us at @WelcomeToVinci with the answer. First person to get it right gets their very own "Welcome to Vinci" T-shirt and a mention on next week's episode.
