Kyra Sedgwick - Kyra Sedgwick Shadowed A New York Reporter For Man On A Ledge Research

Kyra Sedgwick was "disappointed" by her uneventful day spent shadowing a New York City reporter - because she was hoping to witness a murder.
The Closer actress plays an on-air broadcaster in the upcoming drama Man on a Ledge and she tagged along with two professionals at local TV station Ny1 in a bid to understand the inner-workings of the field for her character.
However, the star's experience was much less dramatic than she had hoped.
She says, "I called them up and I said, 'I'm playing a reporter in this movie,' and they said, 'Oh definitely come down, it would be great to have you. But get here really early in the morning because breaking news stories happens early in the morning, we get in the car and we go.' So all night I couldn't sleep I was so excited. It was like Christmas...
"I show up in the morning at 4.30 and I meet the anchorwoman, her name is Vivian Lee... and her camera woman is a woman who is also the driver. So they're like, 'We got the breaking news we got to go, we got to go right now.' So we're driving and they don't really know where they're going, they're like looking on their blackberries (for directions) and everything, because it's very do-it-yourself.
"We pull up to this school in Brooklyn and she parks the car and slaps on her Ny1 (badge) and runs out of the car and grabs the camera and I'm thinking, 'OK this is good because something really bad has happened.'
"Vivian turns on her mic and she says, 'Brooklyn is in an uproar today about the mayor's decision about alternate side of street of parking.' I was a little disappointed it wasn't a murder."
