[ # ] All Rise films a virtual episode with all the actors quarantined at home
April 6th, 2020 under CBS, Coronavirus

Almost all of the broadcast shows ended production of their seasons early because of Coronavirus. However, All Rise is going to back to work with a special episode that is relevant to what is going on now.

The May 4th episode will be shot entirely via FaceTime, WebEx, Zoom and other available social media and online technology from the actors’ homes. They will use special effects if need be to make their homes look more appropriate for the show. CBS also says, “In addition, a cinematographer operating solo from a vehicle will capture exterior footage that reflects the desolate environment that currently exists on the streets and in the neighborhoods of Los Angeles. The entire episode will be shot abiding by social distancing rules and technologies taking place in the world as it exists now. Executive producer Michael Robin will direct.”

What is this groundbreaking episode be about? They say, “…after debating the merits of continuing their work during this time, Judge Benner (Marg Helgenberger) authorizes Lola to preside over a virtual trial that involves a dispute between brothers and a stolen car. Emily (Jessica Camacho) represents the defendant, a graffiti artist, and Mark (Wilson Bethel) prosecutes for the D.A.’s office, marking the first time he tries a case in Lola’s “court.” Also, Mark and Quinn (Lindsey Gort) continue to explore their romantic (and sexual) relationship while quarantined in separate homes; Judge Benner oversees court from afar and struggles to learn how to cook; and Sara (Lindsay Mendez) has to balance her day job with a new side hustle as a food delivery driver. Luke (J. Alex Brinson) and Emily’s relationship is taxed by separation, and germaphobe and type-A Sherri (Ruthie Ann Miles) contends with the new world (dis)order.”

I am really curious to see what they do. It is a fast-paced show, so I feel for the poor editor who will have to piece it all together. However, they will do a great job, and the final product will be unbelievable. Something you don’t want to miss. Plus, what else is on?
