TV Explosion on Potomac Will Be Over in a Flash

That bright flash over the Potomac? Nothing to worry about -- just the return of TV pilot-filming season to D.C. The latest is a CBS Paramount show about the FBI's field office, dubbed "Washington Field." A memo from a city official circulated online today stated that its Wednesday a.m. shoot near the Key Bridge would include a 20-foot "fireball" -- but alas, no such drama in real life. The D.C. Film Office says passersby will only see a brief flash of light and a plume of smoke out above the water; only TV viewers will see the fireball, via special effects.

Still, probably make more of a splash than last week's shooting of the Valerie Plame drama "Fair Game." Star Naomi Watts breezed in and out of town for a couple days of Georgetown filming.

For more on the non-explosion, see the Metro story here.

The EPA has just declared carbon dioxide a hazardous substance. Has an environmental impact statement been prepared for this event?

Kind of like watching Congress at work. People watching on TV see a fireball when in reality there was just a brief flash of light and a little smoke...
