FILM INDUSTRY UPDATE: HOW A SHOT-IN-B.C. SHOW WILL RESUME PRODUCTION SAFELY

After months of COVID-related closures, B.C.'s film and TV industry has been green lit to resume production.

VANCOUVER — After months of COVID-related closures, B.C.’s film and TV industry has been green lit to resume production. But how will the industry ensure thousands of workers back on set stay safe?

CTV Morning Live spoke to Shawn Williamson, producer of “The Good Doctor,” about what will be different as the cast and crew reunites.

The show, which airs on CTV, is shot in B.C.’s Lower Mainland, and Williamson said preparations are underway for a restart next month.

Williamson said Tuesday that the preparations started about three weeks ago, “but the protocols are entirely different to what we’re used to.”

Provincial agency WorkSafeBC has issued guidelines to the industry. Each studio is taking a different approach, Williamson said, but cast and crew on “The Good Doctor” are screened as they arrive at work each day.
