TV series that were to air starting late April have halted shoots amidst coronavirus scare
Ashraf Zaki, Egyptian actor and head of the Academy of Arts, told ‘Al Roeya’ magazine that filming has temporarily been stopped on approximately 80 per cent of all Egyptian TV series set to air this Ramadan, which is expected to begin on April 23. This, to protect the health and safety of crew and cast members.
Zaki added that he is in touch with those in charge of production of series that are still continuing to film, emphasising the importance of following guidelines such as sanitising sets, avoiding traveling far distances and avoiding filming group scenes for the time being.
Several TV shows under El Adl Group Multimedia (AG) are continuing to film, such as Dahab Eira starring Yousra and B100 Wish starring Nelly Karim, reported ‘MBC Trending’.
