"We'll be watching number three up third. We've talked about this in the last two segments but it's hard to preview the year head without talking more about the pandemic so we've said how much things could change if production is interrupted and la has now become the epicenter of the pandemic. Stay at home. Orders have been extended into the new year. The la county department of public health has urged the film and tv industry to consider pausing productions for few weeks during the ongoing surge in coronavirus cases throughout the county. And now we're starting to see that. Cbs studios which produces shows like ncis. Scores of others has extended its holiday. Hiatus from january fourth to january eleventh sag after the gill that represents actors told members this week that most entertainment productions will remain on hiatus until the second or third week of january. If not later dan. i don't know about you but this is starting to feel a whole lot. Like march when production shutdown started to rolling and already even the productions that we had and that brought shows back in the fall did so in ways that were strange and not ideal. You know there was a lot of attempting to simulate businesses usual in the fall. That wasn't really as usual. So we had dan fogelman on the podcast talking about. This is us coming back. And all of the efforts they were taking and how relatively smooth. It sounded like their return was but this is returned with four episodes basically with three weeks of television and then vanished for two months and that was sort of how they did. Their fall was here. It's three nights of tv. And i think there's going to be a lot of that. I think that there are going to be a lot of bursts of new programming when people are able to do things followed by long delays. When they can't and if you happen to be in los angeles right now you know why it would be. The production in los angeles would be very difficult. It's not great here right now. People are seeing. There are no hospital beds and that is not good and it's not good that there were still having these fights about who and what is essential and why certain things that don't seem like they're essential are essential and so is the entertainment industry essential. Well it's a essential to the thousands of people who who require it to work and to feed their families and to live in california economy and to enter the southern california economy and so good god on that level of courses essential but you and our colleagues at t h are have been reporting steadily on these shows have had basically in show outbreaks despite the amount of effort that they've been taking to to keep things clean so some shows have been amazingly efficient and have had no cases and god bless them. Mike flanagan Who did the haunting of hill house and haunting blind manner. He posted on twitter last week or two weeks ago. Basically that he filmed a limited series that he directed every episode of that he describes as the biggest thing he's ever done and he wanted to emphasize that they had no cases of covid in the entire production of the show will awesome. God bless but plenty of shows have had five cases ten cases fifteen cases twenty cases multiple shutdown. I mean shameless was shut down for a few days before the holidays because they had what i was told it was like twenty or more people test positive and they wound up getting retested because they were all in the same zone and it wasn't an outbreak. It was all false positive but they still lost. I think it was like three three. Maybe four days of production which yes fine. Shut it all down when you've got that many positives even if they're not even if nobody thinks that they're right but this is an interruption and you know one of the most illuminating interviews that we did last year. Dan was from episode. Ninety in october with alex kertzman about the star trek franchise where he detailed. Just how much longer it takes to film a show safely in this era. How and how much more money. It costs every episode to do so. So that's also look we. We've talked all about the unrolls and all that stuff but look. This is if any thinking get produced this year. You know yes. Great enjoy have fi. Find your solace in this programming or see yourself on tv or is so important and so valuable now more than ever but so is doing it safely and protecting those who are making it. It obviously goes both ways. We we want the industry to still be there when this is all over and we want the people who work in it to still be there and obviously so many of these things that are crucial to keeping people eating. You know key to keeping the heat on not so much a problem in los angeles but elsewhere. I mean it's cold. It's got hail it's it's not. That's not that cold but yes but all of the things that people need to live if the government had done different things this entire time to help people without work this obviously would not be as much of a terrifying situation as it is and and that's the that's the side effect that people don't get to the. Oh can we afford to give everyone two thousand dollars per month or whatever you wanna say you know. Oh what happens if we keep giving people free money will. The answer is if we don't keep giving people money people have to go back to work because they have to live and that means that they're making these allowances where oh twenty twenty outbreak. Whatever twenty cases twenty positives. They were false positive. So let's keep going. But what about the shows that had five positives that worked false positives. I what is the line at which were shutting things down. Yeah i mean shimmer more who who stars on. Cbs show just posted. I think it was on christmas eve or the day before that he tested positive for covid. You know like this is the lead actor of your show who is supposed to be the most key with cast member supposed to be the most protected people onset and also the most vulnerable. Because they're the ones that have to take their masks off unless you're really on grey's anatomy but were there filming with masks because it is number one on the call sheet but like you know it's i i just my heart goes out because he should feel safe going to work anyway. Guess what we're gonna be talking about this more in the weeks to come so so. Let's let's keep this short because it'll be a long story stretched for costs the entire year number.
