To be honest, I didn't think that comment was a hint. ;) I initially mentioned having passed by so many location shoots downtown mostly to indicate that yeah, that would increase our chances of some pics! - but it would be because they happened to be photographed by whoever was around. ;) The paps still don't really congregate on this end of town like they do at all the celeb haunts, but enough production goes on here that they're around. ('course, a TNT pilot is probably going to generate less interest than, say, if Angelina Jolie was filming a movie or something. But stranger things have happened.)
Other thing is, I have no frame of reference for what's in the script so for all I know they won't need many city street locations. If they are looking for fake suburban Michigan, they're not gonna find it 'round these parts!
