Hot TV In Hot Springs?

The Arkansas Judicial Ethics Advisory Committee has issued an opinion disapproving of a proposed filming in Hot Springs District Court:

...we are here presented with a production company that wishes to make a series of pograms about a particular court, syndicate those programs, perhaps nation-wide, and make a profit from "reality television."

The committee signalled disapproval where the project was motivated by profits rather than a desire to educate. Further, it might be undignified.

Possible titles: "America's Busiest District Court" and "Located in America's Most Dangerous City." (Mike Frisch)
