NBC will shoot 12 episodes of 'Trauma' in SF
Remember in April when a crew filming a pilot for a TV show staged a huge explosion on the I-280 bridge in San Francisco?
NBC liked the pilot and has ordered 12 episodes of the medical drama series titled "Trauma." The Chron says they will be filmed from July to mid-December in SF despite a last-minute hitch.
The city had promised NBC a $600,000 rebate for shooting in the city, and then the Board of Supervisors took it away. That would have likely meant that the San Francisco-based series would have been shot in Vancouver or LA. At the last minute, Board of Supervisors President David Chiu promised NBC it would be getting the rebate.
At a cost of $4 million an episode, the series should generate a lot of jobs. (Video credit: SF Gate)
