Portlandia is an American sketch comedy TV series set and filmed in the city of Portland, Oregon. Originally premiering on the US on relatively unknown network IFC, the show’s popularity helped IFC make a name for itself. Starring Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein (Transparent), who also both helped create the show with Jonathan Krisel, the story is based on off the wall sketches created by the duo. Playing a variety of characters, the most apparent are “Fred and Carrie” – employing an over-the-top embodiment of real life would be actors in Portland. The show is cited to have created a cultural shift in the city of Portland, due to its popularity.
