Space and Place in Story and reader

How do space and place enter the narrative? Do they ever grow beyond setting? Can you see a connection between setting, character, and the place of consumption of the story? Specifically, how do you navigate how a story is consumed (say for television) with the setting of the story. Bewitched, as a sitcom for example was almost always set in the Stevenson’s home. The critical interpretation is that the place of the story, and the place of the consumption of the story were connected. The message "women have powers" had a caveat, "women have powers…at home." So with these kinds of considerations, how does place of setting, and place of consumption enter the narrative field?
