Nora O’Brien, an NBC Universal program executive working on the series “Parenthood,” died Wednesday after collapsing while on location in Sausalito. The cast and crew of “Parenthood,” a remake of the 1989 Steve Martin film, had taken an evening break from shooting and a few people, including the 44-year-old O’Brien, were playing basketball. O’Brien said she felt dizzy and then she collapsed. She was taken to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Correction: The LA Times says she died in Berkeley, but several other sources including the AP, NBC and the Marin IJ say she died in Sausalito. (Photo credit: Paul Drinkwater, NBC Universal)
