As Hollywood TV shows returns to shooting, challenges abound

To watch scripted television in recent weeks is to believe Hollywood has steamrolled through the coronavirus pandemic. Fall shows, it would seem, are chronicling the grim interruptions to Americans’ lives without suffering any of their own.

But the up-to-the-minute plotlines gild what insiders say has been a very tumultuous time. Covid-19 and its restrictions have been taking a heavy toll on scripted television, forcing many productions to pause, budgets to rise, episode counts to be slashed and even some shows to be canceled outright. Much like college football, an attempted projection of normalcy conceals the chaos beneath.

“Every one of our shows in production has been touched in some way by quarantine,” said creator Greg Berlanti, who has nearly 20 active series across broadcast networks and streaming, including “Riverdale” on the CW, “You” on Netflix and this week’s “The Flight Attendant” on HBO Max. “You have to commend everyone who’s

‘Possessor’ star Tuppence Middleton on shooting 2020’s weirdest movie sex scene (exclusive)

Watch: Trailer for sci-fi thriller Possessor



Tuppence Middleton who is smiling and looking at the camera


Tuppence Middleton says director Brandon Cronenberg made her feel “totally secure” while shooting the strangest sex scene of the year for Possessor.

The film follows Andrea Riseborough’s assassin Tasya Vos, who carries out her kills by taking over the bodies of other people — in this case Christopher Abbott’s Colin.

Colin is dating Ava (Middleton) and it is her who’s the target of Vos’s plot, with the real prize control of Ava’s father’s (Sean Bean) company.

While possessing Colin’s body, Vos has sex with Ava in a psychedelic scene that Middleton describes to Yahoo Movies UK as “pretty abstract”.

Donnelly Sr., acting chief of the Fire and Emergency Medical Services Department. “They were responding to a call and they were taking care of a person who was hurt.
