Indy joins TV crime drama locales

Show inspired by local prosecutor set for CBS this fall

For more than 20 years, lawyer Barb Trathen worked rather anonymously in the Marion County prosecutor's office, pursuing murderers, rapists and other criminals.

The anonymous part of her life is about to change.

Trathen, 56, still is pursuing criminals, now for the Hamilton County prosecutor. But she's also a consultant for a new drama that will air on CBS this fall called "Close to Home."

The show is based on the life of a female prosecutor working in Indianapolis. The lead character is loosely drawn from Trathen's real-life experiences.

Yeah, I know the woman who will be the creative consultant. The description of her is apt as she is the most thorough and detailed person that I have ever met. I am looking forward to watching it.
