One of the complaints by firefighters about the TV series “Chicago Fire” has been about a lack of realism. Well whatever the producers of the “Chicago Fire” is apparently real enough for TV news.
WGN Morning News anchors Larry Potash and Robin Baumgarten scrambled to report on helicopter footage of an apparent plane crash near 29th Street and Martin Luther King Drive around 8 a.m. Friday morning. A few minutes later, after considerable ad-libbing, they learned that the apparent wreckage had actually been staged for the NBC series “Chicago Fire.”
Look on the bright side, the producers can take the video of the real news coverage of the fake crash and incorporate it into the story. That should add some realism.
