D.B. Cooper on TNT’s ‘Leverage’

TV news from The Columbian newspaper:

The Aug. 26 episode of the show “Leverage” (on TNT) is called “The D.B. Cooper Job,” and is yet another retelling of What Happened That Night. “Leverage” is filmed and set in Portland, and writer/executive producer Chris Downey wanted to do a “flashback” episode dealing with a local icon. Viewers on Sunday can revisit that night in 1971 when a hijacker parachuted from a plane with a fortune, somewhere between Portland and Seattle. Downey told The Columbian, “I started to do research about things that happened in Portland in the 1970s, and there really wasn’t anything bigger than the night before Thanksgiving when D.B. Cooper hijacked a plane.” It appears Mr. Downey skimmed over the Blazers winning the 1977 NBA championship, but that doesn’t make for good television.
