Locally-filmed series “The Librarians” premieres Dec. 7

“The Librarians,” a new series produced by Dean Devlin and others, will begin a 10-episode season Sunday, December 7 on TNT.

Produced by Devlin’s Electric Entertainment, the series follows TNT’s successful “Librarian” films. The episode is scheduled for 8 p.m.

Devlin and Electric Entertainment filmed “The Librarians” from a sound stage in Clackamas County and throughout communities in the county and the Portland area. Several days of filming took place at one of the county’s water treatment facilities.

The show’s production created hundreds of local full-time jobs held almost exclusively by Oregonians and infused about $26 million into the local economy.

Working with the Governor’s Office of Film and Television, Clackamas County’s Business and Economic Development team provides support to the film, video and multimedia industry to support the industry’s investment in the county.

The 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 permitting for potential film locations within the county, which is featured on Clackamas County’s website: www.clackamas.us/business/film.html

Other recent productions that have filmed in Clackamas County include the popular “Grimm” series on NBC; upcoming films “Wild” based on Portland author Cheryl Strayed’s memoir; and “Cabin Fever: Reboot,” filmed in Molalla.

For more information about the county’s efforts to promote film and media production, please contact Catherine Comer, Business and Economic Development Manager at 503-742-4303 or ccomer@clackamas.us
