Apple Suspends Active Filming of All Apple TV+ Series

Apple has suspended all active filming of Apple TV+ series from outside studios, temporarily halting work on “The Morning Show,” “Foundation,” “See,” “Lisey’s Story,” “Servant,” and “For All Mankind,” in an effort to prevent cast members and crew of the shows from catching the coronavirus

It had been announced yesterday that “The Morning Show” was shutting down production temporarily in order to prevent the spreading of the virus among cast and crew members.

“The Morning Show” was filming its second season, as were “See,” “Servant” and “For All Mankind.” “Foundation” and “Lisey’s Story,” were filming their inaugural seasons.

In related coronavirus production shutdown news, NBCUniversal has either suspended production or accelerated the season wrap schedules on 35 shows (scripted, unscripted and syndicated). Meanwhile, CBS has done the same with a fair amount of its series. Other networks and studios are taking things on a case-by-case scenario.

Netflix has also shut down the physical production of all scripted TV and film for two weeks in The United States and Canada. Disney TV Studios has ceased filming of 16 series pilots, and Warner Bros. Television Group has stopped production on TV shows and pilots that were in the works.
