Re: Thomas Edison crime fighter? NBC pilot in development

I do find it interesting that General Electric has a 49% stake in NBC, and General Electric was the company that Thomas Edison started. It's the set up for the ultimate product placement as Edison will probably spend time talking about how great his company is.
And they'll probably gloss over the fact that Edison's rival, George Westinghouse, was right in promoting AC (alternating current), while Edison's direct current was a technological dead end.
