Fox TV Station said prepping ‘Trauma’

Fox Television Station Prods. is readying a new “Cops”-like cinema verite half-hour weekly series for firstrun syndication called “Trauma Center,” sources said Monday.

The program, which is expected to be announced shortly for weekend access slots beginning next fall, will be based in hospital emergency rooms throughout the country.

Cameras will follow patients during their emotional ordeals.

Twentieth TV has reportedly committed to an initial order of 26 episodes, with the total rising to 45 episodes the following year. It hopes to have stockpiled enough episodes by 1996 to start stripping the reruns.

‘Mo’ test

The syndicator, meanwhile, is said to be testing the latenight waters with Fox Television Station Prod.’s “Mo Show.”

The Mo Gaffney talker, which has been receiving a daytime tryout on Fox-owned KTTV, may soon land in late fringe slots once occupied by the defunct “Jane Whitney Show.”

Twentieth has approached a few stations about providing a tryout for the chatshow, which had initially been seen as a daytime vehicle.
