Portland Mayor, Sam Adams, is rallying behind Portlandia for Emmy consideration in twelve categories, including Outstanding Variety Series. Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisens’ hit sketch comedy series has already completed two seasons in Portland and is coming back for a third this year. The show won an Emmy in 2011 for Outstanding Costumes For A Variety/Music Program.
Other news: Portlandia is now available in the UK on the recently launched (in Britain) netflix.com. And if you are coming for a visit soon, check out IFC’s cool interactive travel map of the city.
