TV show 'Shrill' films in Westmoreland
Observing a film crew setting up in the Westmoreland business district aroused the curiosity of passers-by. Trucks pulled in, parking just off of S.E. Milwaukie Avenue on Rural Street, on Tuesday morning, August 20.
The crew, employed by "Broadway Video", filmed scenes on the sidewalk, as well as inside STARS Antiques Mall, for the second season of "Shrill" – a television show distributed over the Internet via Hulu.
Starring Aidy Bryant of "Saturday Night Live" fame, the second season of the show continues to follow a self-described "fat woman" who wants to change her life, but not her body – while she tries to make it as a journalist.
The cast and crew, filming for release next year, were polite – but declined to speak with THE BEE about their experience filming in Inner Southeast Portland.
