The hit TNT series “Leverage” has chosen to film in Portland once again for its third season. The show, produced by Electric Entertainment, created over 200 jobs for Portlanders during the filming of Season 2 and will likely do so again when production begins in early 2010.

Dean Devlin, the show’s Executive Producer, says he appreciates filming here because “the city has everything to offer that a big city can offer, but Portland still has the heart and soul of a small town.” Portland’s arts and culture policy director, Jen Yocom, agrees: “they’ve had a good experience in the city and we’re hoping to set the stage for many more productions to come to town.” Good work, Portland.
