The Masked Singer shifts audience to Zoom
Lockdown rules mean producers turn to 2020 model of audience on zoom and a mosh-pit of teddy bears.
Television production in Sydney continues to navigate a way forward under evolving lockdown conditions.
The Masked Singer has been forced to switch plans for a studio audience at Carriageworks later this week to an audience of 100 on Zoom.
This repeats the creative way Warner Bros. producers addressed a similar problem last year when it filmed during a Melbourne lockdown, with zany teddy bears and zebras in a mosh pit.
Although the 10 show had to deal with its own COVID outbreak, it continued on, even having a virtual Osher Günsberg for its final, with judges as far away as New Zealand.
Returning to the show are Dannii Minogue, Jackie O., Dave Hughes & Urzila Carlson.
