If you liked ER, you might like Trauma – it will be coming soon to a television near you.
But if you never witnessed ER, then it’s hard to imagine you’d consider San Francisco-based Trauma to be anything but more dreck from the L.A. County “dream factory.” JMO.
This is how the 1100 block of Kearny looked this afternoon. Click to expand:
There appeared to be a struggle getting this heavy piece of equipment down the block:
The stars taking a break? Looks that way.
And, of course, lots of people standing around on the clock doing nothing. Doing nothing avec attitude, actually. At least Hollywood has access to an interesting outdoor set. (You know, lots of productions were shot on this very spot over the years.)
Let’s hope the suits down south feel it’s generally worth the hassle of filming (or taping?) here instead of Vancouver or thereaboot, eh?
But you know what? A feature on what it’s like to film in the City and County, well, that could very easily be watchable.
Anyway, Trauma itself is just so much grist for the boob tube. In NBC’s own words:
“Like an adrenaline shot to the heart, Trauma is an intense, action-packed..”
Prose like that gags, doesn’t it?
And here’s an early review from somebody who generally just loves TV:
“I’ve made my way through all the pilots for the new fall season. And I’m ready to declare the new shows I’m most excited about for the fall. (As a side note I’m most worried about NBC, I didn’t like “Trauma” or “Mercy” but that’s a column for another time).”
That’s right, Open 4 Business Productions, LLC also helped produce Mercy, the other warmed-over ER copycat debuting on the Peacock this autumn. Oh well.
