Scranton, PA

Friday, January 11, 2008

The former coal and textile town in eastern Pennsylvania is the setting for NBC’s hit sitcom "The Office". It’s filmed in California, but the producers think Scranton is the right locale for an office full of incompetents and slackers. Kurt called up Mayor Christopher Doherty to find out how the town is dealing with its newfound fame.

Pittsburgh is a physically stunning city, despite its past reputation as the Smoky City or "Hell with the lid off" thanks to the steel industry, now long gone. But, several films have showcased the city's hills, rivers and neighborhoods, starting with 'Flashdance' and moving through such undistinguished efforts like "Striking Distance" and "The Roommate."
"Wonderboys," though, focuses on the city's neighborhoods and bars with a real affection. The impact is one of surprise by those who have never visited.
