Fears Over FCC Reaction to F-Bombs as Wells Ponders ‘Southland’ Time Period Switch

Jun 17, 2009  •  Post A Comment

John Wells and the production team behind NBC’s "Southland" are worried their show could become a target of the FCC next season, the Los Angeles Times reports. The concern: The show’s practice of bleeping out profanities might not be enough to avoid running afoul of the government’s tough indecency standards. "Southland" is set to move to 9 p.m. next season, outside of the so-called FCC "safe harbor" for adult content.
