Topics include: Film and TV production; SNL and late-night shows recorded remotely; movie theater closures; scrambled release calendars and canceled events; what the future may hold for pop culture devotees like us; and, finally, Drake.

Some further reading:

  • Deadline: What will happen on film/TV sets once they do eventually resume production

  • IndieWire: Steven Soderbergh leading a DGA committee on restarting production
  • Los Angeles Times: Film sets are notoriously unsanitary
  • Vulture: What happens for the rest of the year?
