So, we’ve all heard about how the pilot episode of a show called “Trauma” is being shot here. What this coverage has been missing, by our celebrity-obsessed estimation, is information on what famous people will be here to shoot said series.* We’re here to help, folks:

Producers include Peter Berg, who, we’re told, “is expected to be there part of the week.” Actors we have confirmation on include Derek Luke, Jamey Sheridan and (uncomfirmed) IMDB lists a bunch of other people we haven’t heard of.

But, hey, that means we get Antwone Fisher and that Law and Order guy in a show about EMTs. Rad. We always loved Emergency.

Before we get too excited about a return to the halcyon Nash Bridges days, anybody remember “The Evidence“, which shot a pilot and a couple of follow-up episodes before moving production to Vancouver and getting canceled? You hear that, Trauma? Canceled.

Anyone seen them out shooting yet? Let us know!

*Trauma producers, have you considered the increase in chances for series pickup you’d have if you added Jason Statham as a special guest? Just trying to help.
