The Hollywood Reporter says that the USA Network has ordered a pilot of a San Francisco-based legal drama titled “Facing Kate,” starring Battlestar Galactica’s Michael Trucco, Virginia Williams and Sarah Shahi.
Shahi (pictured) plays Kate, a divorced SF woman who leaves her job at a law firm to become a mediator after the death of her father, who headed a law firm.
Speaking about scripted dramas set in SF, the NBC series “Trauma” apparently hasn’t flat-lined despite earlier reports. The network has ordered up three more episodes that will air sometime before the Winter Olympics in mid-February. Since the show’s ratings have steadily eroded, it’s unclear why three more episodes were ordered.
