San Francisco's love for its own fanciful depiction probably won't be enough to save Trauma from network accountants.
It was a rare breath of life for the moribund San Francisco film production scene.

San Francisco is a beautiful location for any production, but an expensive one -- while the city has moved to improve tax givebacks, required fees for police protection have certainly ballooned budgets.
