Discovery sued over reality TV death

Discovery and the production company Anthropic Productions are being sued by the family of a woman killed in June 2012, when a pyrotechnic device malfunctioned during the filming of a reality TV pilot for the network.

According to a complaint obtained by The Hollywood Reporter‘s Hollywood, Esq., the opening sequence for the Brothers in Arms pilot was to feature five people — including plaintiff Mel Bernstein and his late spouse, Terry Flanell, who were the owners of the Colorado filming location — walking through a cloud of smoke carrying weapons. “To produce the smoke for the opening sequence,” the document says, “Discovery and Anthropic utilized two pyrotechnic devices that Discovery and Anthropic knew had not been manufactured by a licensed and experienced manufacturer of pyrotechnic devices.”

The suit also claims neither the network nor production company obtained the proper government permit authorizing use of pyrotechnic devices or had a licensed pyrotechnics operator on set. Mel Bernstein is suing for wrongful death and negligent infliction of emotional distress, while the couple’s daughter, Melanie Flanell-Bernstein, also filed suit for the latter.

Discovery had no comment.

Stephen Fry reveals he attempted suicide last year

Stephen Fry admitted that he tried to commit suicide last year, according to the Guardian. The incident took place while the actor and writer was filming outside his native U.K. “It was a close run thing,” Fry said on Monday night, while being interviewed by British comedian Richard Herring in front of an audience in London, for Herring’s podcast. “I took a huge number of pills and a huge [amount] of vodka and the mixture of them made my body convulse so much that I broke four ribs, but I was still unconscious,” Fry said. “And, fortunately, the producer I was filming with at the time came into the hotel room and I was found in a sort of unconscious state and taken back to England and looked after.”

Fry, who has previously spoken about suffering from bipolar disorder, is president of the British mental-health charity Mind and told Herring that he regarded it as his duty to talk publicly about his own psychological issues. “The whole point in my role” he said, “is to be … forthcoming about the morbidity and genuine nature of the likelihood of death amongst people [with] certain mood disorders.”
