MIAMI (AP) - The spy series "Burn Notice" might blow up its own studio space, if one Miami official gets his way.
The series - currently in its sixth season - films at a defunct, city-owned convention center, but a master plan calls for the building to be demolished and replaced with a waterfront park. Commissioner Marc Sarnoff, whose district includes the convention center, has recently suggested not renewing the show's lease when it expires in October, regardless of whether it's approved for a seventh season.
Sarnoff is now making a new proposal: Instead of its normal $240,000 annual rent payment for a seventh season, the show would cover the demolition costs for the convention center, possibly working the building's destruction into the show's eventual finale.
Bob Lemchen, with Fox Television Studios, says they're reviewing the offer, but negotiations are ongoing.
