This is strictly a News and Notes blog so if you're not interested, have a good day!!! You may have seen that California has been given the go ahead to resume filming/TV production as early as June 12th.
See LA TIMES for the full article.
Everyone was all happy, thinking GH might be back but... hold your IV poles because it's by county. And no one is sure LA County is ready for that yet.
Ergo... who knows. I have heard that even when production ramps up again, it may be a little chaotic at first because of the many MANY guidelines that would have to be followed. Only so many in a space for example...not sure they can touch.. you know they won't kiss! The unions can also have a say, especially the crew; and they could have a choice to opt out. Will there have to be on-going testing like they have in some industries?
Either way, looks like the Nurses Ball, scheduled to be filmed when the lock-down hit has to wait. Unless they put one singer on the stage and just let us listen to the acts with nothing else, I don't see how it could work.
Some actors don't live in LA; will they want to return if it means an air flight? MESS people, it's a mess. Just like schools and other work spaces that have people crammed in there, it's going to be a long haul until the vaccine comes out.
Remember to check out Nancy Lee Grahn's You Tube Channel as she has some really hilarious zoom videos and an interview with Tony Geary. She probably could just take over GH's spot now and have a talk show. You can find her on Nancy Lee Grahn Events
Next week we will have the 2019 season of the Nurses Ball and then the next week will be a CarSon -centric theme. I was wrong to say there was a Metro Court "week" as the Metro Court "theme" is actually ONE day in the Sonny and Carly fest. :EYEROLL: --why not show the whole thing? It was a great continuous story that could air really well. If this keeps up, maybe they will think about that a bit? I'm also afraid if it drags out much longer, the network will just put game shows in that spot and..well. What will that lead to??! !
There's a cute show on Amazon now called Upload that you may like. I wasn't sure because it started a bit slow but it got really good. Jessica Tuck is in there!! (Cassandra GH and Megan on OLTL) It's a "Second Life" type idea and a great escape. Just what I need now.
It's a beauty day here so I hope I don't spend it just weeding!! Have a good one. Be kind to each other and have some cake. We all need some damn cake right now.
