NBC's Grimm celebrates 100th episode in Portland
PORTLAND, Ore. -- What do Portland Police and mystical creatures have in common? They're all on NBC's drama series 'Grimm,' which is celebrating a huge milestone.
Cast and crew of the Oregon-produced show are celebrating its 100th episode.
Among the attendees, state and city officials also came to show support; the show is important to them because of its economic contributions.
"A hundred episodes later this show has spent over $250 million in the state," said Governor Kate Brown.
"The president of NBC told me they love producing shows here so much that there may be other shows, which means we got to add capacity to the state film and tax credit," said Arts Commissioner Nick Fish.
They have looked at shooting in other locations in Oregon, including Lane County.
"We scouted and thought maybe this is a little too far, but maybe one day for the special two-parter," said Grimm creator & director Norberto Barba.
Grimm is in its fifth season. The show airs on NBC Friday nights at 9 p.m.
The 100th episode will air sometime this spring.
