On June 28, about 250 invited guests received a backstage tour of a network television program being produced in Clackamas County. The invitation-only event for the Oregon Media Production Association was hosted by Electric Entertainment, and sponsored by Clackamas County Business and Economic Development Department, Tourism and Cultural Affairs and PGE.
Guests were treated to an exclusive tour of the set of the upcoming TNT television series The Librarians. A portion of the 10-episode series is being filmed at a warehouse in the Clackamas Industrial Area. The show’s production is projected to create approximately 750 full-time jobs held almost exclusively by Oregonians and infuse about $26 million into the local economy.
The Librarians premieres December 7 on TNT.
Working with the Governor’s Office of Film and Television, Clackamas County provides support to the film, video and multimedia industry to support the industry’s investment in the County. The economic development team is responsible for marketing and attracting media-related businesses to the County. An example of that support and assistance is the countywide permitting process that simplified and streamlined the permitting process for potential film locations within the County, which recently received a National Association of Counties Achievement Award.
