Former Simpsons Showrunner Bill Oakley Joining Portlandia


Here’s some exciting news: Bill Oakley, former Simpsons showrunner and friend of Splitsider, is joining Portlandia as a writer and consulting producer for its second season. Oakley lives in Portland already, so he’s probably got years of jokes about its residents just waiting to explode from his chest, which I assume is covered by a shirt with a bird on it.
