‘S.W.A.T.’ – Jordin Althaus/CBS ©2020 CBS Broadcasting, Inc. All Rights Reserved(LOS ANGELES) — The TV industry is starting to find its footing following the months-long COVID-19 shutdown.
S.W.A.T., CBS’ remake of the 1970s police drama, could be the first broadcast TV’s first scripted primetime series to resume production, according to Deadline.
The show starring Shemar Moore, is tentatively slated to begin filming Tuesday in Los Angeles, with the standard COVID-19 safety protocols in place. S.W.A.T., originally tapped as a mid-season replacement, will join Seal Team as a replacement for the COVID-stalled Survivor in the network’s fall lineup. CBS’ The Good Doctor is also set to resume production by mid-August in Vancouver.
