March 15, 2020

Genius: Aretha, is a National Geographic series that films in Atlanta, starring Cynthia Erivo and is set to premiere in May. Whereas, Grey's Anatomy, a production based in Los Angeles, is currently airing its 16th season on ABC.

Other than that, productions on 16 of Disney's television pilots will be postponed for three weeks. Those include: Adopted, The Big Leap, The Big Sky, The Brides, Harlem's Kitchen, Home Economics, Kids Matter Now, My Village, Ordinary Joe, Prospect, Rebel, Valley Trash, Work Wife, Wreckage, an untitled project from writers Emily Kapnek and Dean Holland and Thirtysomething sequel.

Those productions are based across the US in cities including Los Angeles, New York, Chicago and Albuquerque.

The spokesman added that a number of currently airing series produced by Disney Television Studios have already wrapped for the season and are therefore unaffected.

The postponement of production on these shows is the latest notable effect coronavirus has had on Hollywood. Whereas, this week, several film release dates have been pushed back, including those for Mulan and The New Mutants.
