We left 2020 behind but Covid-19 must have lost the memo as it continues to derail plans for the music and film industry. Due to the high rise in coronavirus deaths in California, a hold has been placed on production in efforts to minimize the infection rate.

Many productions will be on hold up until January 18th which is subject to change per the health official’s recommendations.

Warner Bros TV pauses its comedy shows Mom, B Positive, and Bob Hearts Abishola, all CBS shows. But it also affects Shameless on Showtime and You on Netflix. Universal TV also puts Mr. Mayor, Kenan, Good Girls, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine on hold, including Hacks and Never, Have I Ever.

Walt Disney however has the lengthiest list of shows to be paused as they own Fox and ABC. Shows to be paused includes 911, 911: Lone Star, American Crime Story: Impeachment, American Horror Story, American House Wife, Big Show, Black-ish, Grey’s Anatomy, Last Man Standing, Love, Victor, Mayans, Mixed-is, The Orville, Rebel, Station 19 and This is Us.

“Although music, TV, and film productions are allowed to operate, we ask you to strongly consider pausing work for a few weeks during this catastrophic surge in COVID cases,” public health department representatives wrote to companies in an email. “Identify and delay higher risk activities, and focus on lower-risk work for now, if at all possible.”
