IFC’s “Portlandia” shoots at Blazers practice facility
Upon arrival at the practice facility on Tuesday, something was different with trailers all over. IFC’s sketch comedy show set in Portland, “Portlandia,” was filming at today’s practice in Tualatin.
The Trail Blazers requested media upon arrival to not report that the show was being filmed there today. The show’s stars Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstien could be seen talking with players after they finished practice. However, the silence on the Portlandia shoot was broken by Blazers owner Paul Allen.
