Everybody reports that locally-shot show Trauma has gone the way of the dinosaurs. The LA Times reports that NBC will “finish producing the rest of its original 13-episode order” which means street closures and stuff like that will continue, but that there’s “no word on whether NBC will air the remaining episodes.”

    I can’t even get KNTV in San Francisco. I have an HDTV and amplified antenna. How many other folks in SF can’t watch a show filmed here? Geez, maybe if it was on KPIX I could at least see why the series is being dumped.

    it was such a bad show. plus all the “tax credits” in the world wouldn’t have saved it. The per episode cost, filmed in SF or not, was $3 million. And, well, it sucked. Unless they issue a tax credit for “non crappy writing” doing these things is a gamble.

    And NBC canceled “Life” too. Bastards!

    Greg, are you suggesting some NBC anti-Siebelism?
