“Leverage” Increases Syndication With Addition of “Major-Market” CBS Stations

Trifecta Entertainment and Media announced a two-year deal yesterday to  re-broadcast the shot-in-Portland show Leverage on local CBS-owned stations in 13 major markets beginning this fall.

This “syndication” deal joins an already-inked agreement, announced last September, to rebroadcast episodes of the hit TNT series on ION Television.

While this is great news for Electric Entertainment, the producers of Leverage, it’s also great news for Oregon.  These “re-runs” on other networks increase the overall number of times that shows shot in Portland will be viewed - which mean more residual payments for those film and TV workers who’ve worked on the show (and who qualify for them.) which, in turn, go into the cash registers of local merchants in their communities.

Additionally, these rebroadcasts play a larger role in raising Oregon’s reputation as a premiere location for film and television.  The more often shot-in-Oregon programming appears on the air, the more audiences will be taken by the scenic beauty of the state… and the more likely it is that another director, producer or location manager may catch sight of a particular setting that would fit his or her next project. 

Syndication deals like this one indicate ”staying power…” and staying power can yield great returns for Oregon long after the cameras stop rolling.
