Portlandia producer drives through

So my BFF Bill Oakely, a producer of the television show Portlandia, and former writer for the Simpsons, breezed through Spokane this weekend and tweeted me this photo to prove it.

Oakley, you may remember drew my ire when he read my article about the wonders of Spokane in an inflight magazine and tweeted that he didn't think the city was worthy of a 20-page spread.

This is all part of my plan to lure him to my fair city to shoot a pilot of Spokanlandia. Next time, I've asked him to let me know ahead of time so I can at least take him to see our garbage eating goat!.

What would a TV-show based in Coeur d'Alene be about?
