Television in the time of coronavirus is going to start to look drastically different. While many TV and film productions across the world have shut down out of abundance of caution for the spreading coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, some shows have forged ahead. Most of those ongoing productions are animated shows, with most of the moving parts of animated series (voice acting, animation, etc.) allowing staff and actors to complete their work virtually.
But live-action TV and movies are a different story, with actors and crew only able to shoot in close quarters for extended periods of time. However, the CBS drama All Rise is finding a way to navigate around that, with a virtually produced episode that will be shot entirely from home. The episode will, fittingly, be about coronavirus.
