Walt Disney Television Studios Halting Production Due To COVID
Many television studios in LA are opting to push back the start of production in the New Year due to a large surge in COVID-19 cases in Los Angeles County.
According to a recent piece on DEADLINE, 16 scripted series across Disney TV Studios’ ABC Signature and 20th Century divisions will stay on hiatus until January 18th. This is a week later than originally projected.
The shows impacted include the following:
- Grey’s Anatomy (ABC)
- Station 19 (ABC)
- American Housewife (ABC)
- Black-ish (ABC)
- Mixed-ish (ABC)
- Rebel (ABC)
- This is Us (NBC)
- 911: Lone Star (Fox)
- Last Man Standing (Fox)
- American Crime Story: Impeachment (FX)
- American Horror Story (FX)
- Mayans (FX)
- Big Shot (Disney+)
- The Orville (Hulu)
- Love, Victor (Hulu)
The decision to push back production is a response to an appeal by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health urging the film and television industries to consider halting production due to the surge in COVID-19 cases in California. On New Year’s Eve, Los Angeles reported the third consecutive day of coronavirus-related deaths. According to the piece on DEADLINE, on Wednesday the region recorded its 10,000 death related to the coronavirus. LA County’s ICU capacity also sits at 0% and the stay-at-home order for the region has been extended until January 16th.
