'Stumptown' Doesn't Film in Portland — Here's How They Get That Northwest Vibe


The Pacific Northwest is one of the most beautiful parts of the country, but aside for a few shows set in Seattle (like Grey's Anatomy and Frasier), it doesn't get a lot of love on the small screen.

A handful of shows have been filmed in Oregon — most notably Portlandia — but the laid-back Pacific Northwest city has been the backdrop for a couple recent shows, such as Grimm and Here and Now. And the latest TV series set in the Beaver State is the heavily anticipated Stumptown. Centered on Dex Parios, a Marine veteran turned private eye with PTSD and a gambling problem, the show is set in Portland, affectionately nicknamed Stumptown by locals.
