PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - An industry study shows that movie and television production in Oregon accounts for than 18,750 jobs and $256.3 million in wages.

The Oregonian reports (https://is.gd/fNxuB5 ) that the Motion Picture Association of America, Inc.’s report says that TV series such as “Grimm,” ”Portlandia” and “The Librarians” helped keep more than 1,450 businesses going in the state.

MPAA released the data in support of trade promotion authority legislation, which Congress is still considering, along with the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a trade pact involving Pacific Rim nations. MPAA says that trade agreements will create even more jobs in Oregon and elsewhere.

The MPAA is the organization that advocates for the U.S. movie, TV, and video industries, with offices in Los Angeles and Washington, D.C.
