Too Much Reality Even for Reality TV

The Hollywood Reporter (6/17, Gardner) reports, “A disaster that caught the attention of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives has prompted a wrongful-death lawsuit against Discovery Communications.” The Reporter continues, “Last June, a film production crew was taping a pilot for a show that was to be called Brother in Arms. According to a lawsuit filed in Colorado federal court on Thursday, producers were filming the opening sequence of the show, where five individuals were going to walk through a cloud of smoke with weapons. To pull this off, two pyrotechnic devices are said to have been used. The devices malfunctioned, shooting rockets toward the individuals – hitting one, a woman named Terry Flanell, and killing her. Her family is now suing over the tragedy.”
