Blind Items Revealed

October 17, 2008

#3 - This is an unusual one. Just the name of a show rather than a person. What brand new television show, filmed outside the US, has pretty much ruined it for all companies that want to film there in the future. The reason? The crew working the show had never been treated as badly in terms of verbal abuse, lack of respect and working conditions. In addition, a local girl was severely burnt in the face and upper body when a light exploded on set. By way of compensation she was offered a job in a city 300 miles away from the village where she has lived her whole life. Obviously she could not do it, and the production company just didn't care. It gave her one option, and one option only.

One more example of the ugly American.
Thanks a million assholes - it is hard enough for us decent citizens to defend this country as it is . . .

The show is actually being made by a London-based independent production company. NBC hired the company, which is of British origin, which was a big 'to do' as it was the first time in 40 years that this had been done.

It's not another 'ugly American' issue.

We did hire them though.

whew - good to know Geebz.
Thanks for the correction!

I had to look it up. It's hard being one of us isn't it?

But...they deserve to be fired and each decision-maker needs their as$es kicked. Hopefully NBC will do something for the poor girl and her family.

Glad it was canceled then.
