USA Network’s new show “Fairly Legal” takes place in San Francisco, CA. Mediator Kate Reed (played by Sarah Shahi) lives on a boat in a marina somewhere in the North Bay and takes the ferry to work, using a cab to get around to her various appointments.
It’s during one of these cab rides that the driver is obviously distracted by the aroma of his coffee.
Uh oh, the distracted driver doesn’t see the vulnerable user in his path: a well dressed bicycle commuter.
The bike rider is sideswiped by the cab driver; the cyclist gets a little hot and tries to pull the cabbie from his taxi.
Since Kate’s a mediator, she jumps in the middle to ‘mediate’ their differences.
Besides establishing shots, most of the show is filmed in Vancouver, and this sequence is obviously not San Francisco.
With apologies to my non-USA audience, here’s Season 1 Episode 2 where you can watch the bike vs taxi scene beginning at about 3:30.
Trivia: I briefly lived in Sarah Shahi’s hometown of Euless, Texas when she was a teen. FWIW.
