HBO producer making show about Oakland City Hall

OAKLAND, Calif.

Officials are still deciding whether to cooperate with the producers of City Hall. ABC7 News spoke to a city councilwoman who's not sure this is what Oakland needs right now. "We've got pretty serious issues to deal with in Oakland and I think it's important people take their elected officials seriously," Oakland City Councilwoman Pat Kernighan said.

When pressed about who she'd like to see play her, Kernighan playfully suggested Gina Davis. There have also been tongue-in-cheek suggestions that the Bay Area's own Margaret Cho could handle the role of Mayor Jean Quan and "The Rock" might do a good job playing Police Chief Howard Jordan.
