Frederickson “Leverages” his effects skills

“Leverage,” returning to TNT Jan. 13 for another season of 15 episodes, will have “newer, better, cooler types of gadgets in general,” says Twisted Media’s Derek Frederickson, who designs and programs the electronic devices integral to the plot.

While the action takes place in Boston, the series is shot in Portland, Oregon, having moved there from L.A. for the second season.
