Newsom lauds ‘Trauma,’ proud of actress wife

Mayor Gavin Newsom says thumbs up to the NBC television medical drama series “Trauma,” which is filmed in The City and debuted last night.

The mayor told The Examiner at a renewable energy finance conference this morning that he had not missed the first episode despite his busy schedule. He’d better not – his actress wife Jennifer Siebel Newsom appeared briefly in the show.

“I thought it was very good, I thought even from the first scene, when the two helicopters crashed, I was not prepared for that,” Newsom said.

Then again, Newsom was disappointed about one thing: Some of his wife’s scenes were cut, an all-too-common bummer in the TV business.

“She had six scenes and they only did two,” he said. “But nonetheless, it was great to see her in there.”

What might also be great is what “Trauma” does for The City. If enough people follow the series, the filming activity could continue in San Francisco for years and offer a significant economic boost.
