NBC reportedly has bowed to Palestinian Authority pressure and has cancelled plans to short part of its new “DIG” television series near the Old City in areas of Jerusalem claimed by the PA.
“There was no plan made to film the series in the City of David National Park or in the village of Silwan, furthermore, location scouting and planning will not begin until February 2014, and any decisions regarding possible production sites will be made with respect for all concerned parties,” according to an NBC official quoted by Haaretz.
The statement totally contradicts a previous NBC press release that stated that “the project would be shot in the City of David and present the exciting history of the Old City.”
It appears that NBC is taking lessons from the U.S. State Dept. on how to react to Palestinian Authority pressure.
