(AP) NBC says it is conscious about the amount of violence it airs in the wake of real-life tragedies, but it isn't really an issue because NBC isn't the shoot-'em-up network.

Network entertainment President Jennifer Salke said Sunday that NBC hasn't taken any specific steps to ask show creators to tone down violence. She said it would be different if NBC was perceived as a shoot-'em-up network with many crime procedurals, but she said it wasn't an issue.

NBC has in development a drama based on the life of Hannibal Lecter, one of fiction's most indelible serial killers, but hasn't scheduled it for the air.

Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt said a tonic for people disturbed by violence is to watch an episode of Parenthood.
