NBC axes ‘Trauma’

Network cancels struggling medical series

NBC has lost a patient in “Trauma.”

Medical series has been cancelled by the Peacock and production will be halted after its 13-episode order has been completed.

Despite not giving it a back-season order, network has no intention of pulling the show off its Monday lineup and will continue to air episodes until the run is complete.

Universal Media Studios show from Peter Berg’s Film 44 shingle was supposedly the most expensive show on the Peacock’s fall lineup. The network was put in a tough spot earlier in the year when “Parenthood” had to be pushed back to 2010 when co-star Maura Tierney was ill.

The move forced the net to put two medical series on the air: “Trauma” and “Mercy.” The latter has already been given a full-season order.

Wednesday, NBC ordered six more episodes of “Chuck,” which will air on Mondays paired with “Heroes.”

Exec producers are Berg, Sarah Aubrey, Jeffrey Reiner, Peter Noah and Dario Scardapane.
