PORTLAND - TNT’s “Leverage" is tackling one of our region's greatest mysteries.
This week's episode is fittingly called "The D.B. Cooper job,” whereby the team tries to help a dying FBI agent solve the D.B. Cooper case.
The mysterious skyjacker who vanished out the back of a Boeing 727 wearing a business suit, a parachute and a pack with $200,000 in ransom in 1971.
“Leverage" writer and executive producer Chris Downey told the Columbian that after moving the characters to Portland this year - he wanted to do a flashback episode dealing with something from our region's history and that D.B. Cooper seemed like the perfect fit.
