<em>Trauma:</em> NBC Cancellation Bad for San Francisco Economy, Too

Trauma: NBC Cancellation Bad for San Francisco Economy, Too

November 1, 2009
The cancellation of NBC's Trauma series is upsetting many EMTs and regular viewers. Apparently the San Francisco economy is going to miss it as well. Trauma follows a group of first responder paramedics in the San Francisco area. The high-action medical drama stars Derek Luke, Cliff Curtis, Anastasia Griffith, Kevin Rankin, Aimee Garcia, Billy Lush, Jamey Sheridan, and Taylor Kinney. The show's been struggling in the ratings from the start and NBC announced last week that the network wouldn't be ordering any more episodes. Though many shows have been set there, Trauma is the first show to be completely filmed in the City by the Bay since Nash Bridges went off the air in 2001. Before that, there was Midnight Caller and Streets of San Francisco. As with many out-of-town productions, the filming of Trauma hasn't all been smooth sailing. Plans to film the series in San Francisco nearly got derailed after the pilot. Productions can typically get rebates from local government to entice shooting in their area. The San Francisco Board of Supervisors reportedly changed their program so that rebates went to film productions. The Trauma pilot was ineligible and NBC was none too pleased after spending $8 million on it. Things eventually got worked out and the network okayed local production of the 12 additional episodes. Around that same time, Mayor Gavin Newsom came under criticism for taking campaign contributions from an NBC exec. Later, the city had to spend an extra $270,000 for a big annual convention that's usually held in a facility that was rented out for Trauma. Despite some extra expenses and inconveniences to the locals, Trauma has very been good for the local San Francisco economy. It's estimated that $3-4 million per episode is spent in the area. That comes from payments of crew, police overtime, permits and catering. There are 150 people employed on the full-time crew, as many as 300 guest actors, extras, and other local labor as well.

NBC Picks Up Three Shows; <em>Heroes, Law & Order,</em> and <em>Trauma</em> Cancelled Soon?

NBC Picks Up Three Shows; Heroes, Law & Order, and Trauma Cancelled Soon?

October 26, 2009
The peacock network gave three shows some very good news on Friday. NBC ordered nine additional episodes each of Community, Parks and Recreation, and Mercy. What about the others, like Heroes, Trauma, and Law & Order? None of the three shows have been performing particularly well but the network is committed, at least for now, to sticking with them. If the ratings for any of them become much worse, NBC could still reduce the season orders. All three are co-productions of NBC's corporate sister, Universal Media Studios, so that seems unlikely to happen. Things don't look quite as rosy though for some of the network's other programs. Heroes was expected to be one of the weakest players this season but, because of the rest of NBC's schedule, it's one of the stronger performers in the 18-49 demographic. As unlikely as it may seem, Heroes could live to see a fifth season. Law & Order is performing terribly this season, likely in part to the fact that it's now airing much earlier than it has for 19 seasons. The show's also running on Friday nights where viewership and expectations are lower. Still, the demo ratings are low. Creator Dick Wolf made financial concessions to ensure that the show was renewed last Spring so that it could tie with Gunsmoke for longest-running drama (for number of seasons anyway). With more than 470 episodes, there are plenty of episodes for syndication and it seems unlikely that Law & Order will be renewed again.
