OPB's Think Out Loud, Fri. Aug. 13th:Oregon on Screen



What is Oregon’s on-screen image… and how are the TV and film industries faring here?

We’ve been reading lots of TV show news recently. The TNT show Leverage, which will wrap up shooting its third season on Friday, just announced it would be back in Oregon for a fourth season. Fans of the online series Thunderant will be happy to hear that it’s being turned into a new show all about Portland, debuting next year on the Independent Film Channel. And then there’s the CW show Life Unexpected, which is about to start its second season. It takes place in Portland but is shot mainly in Vancouver, BC. All of this got us wondering how the state is being portrayed on the small and big screens — and how the film biz is doing in Oregon since the last time we talked about it.
