Hollywood sets restart date

Film and television production is set to resume in Hollywood after months of shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The California Department of Public Health said in a statement, “Music, TV and film production may resume in California, recommended no sooner than June 12, 2020, and subject to approval by county public health officers within the jurisdictions of operations following their review of local epidemiological data including cases per 100,000 population, rate of test positivity, and local preparedness to support a health care surge, vulnerable populations, contact tracing and testing.

“To reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission, productions, cast, crew and other industry workers should abide by safety protocols agreed by labor and management, which may be further enhanced by county public health officers. Back office staff and management should adhere to Office Workspace guidelines published by the California Department of Public Health and the California Department of Industrial Relations, to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission.”

  1. I think it could become the battle of the tax credit when TV / movie production gets going again, the Canadian government ( Ontario Minister Lisa McLeod) seems to want to make the funding system more balanced by favoring individual producers without having a broadcaster attached to the project. So perhaps TV entertainment is waiting for Canada to start again.
