Wildfires Slow Production on Several Shows

The wildfires blazing out of control in Southern California have forced several TV shows that film there to adjust scenes, reschedule or halt production entirely.

Many television shows have sets in the area or had planned on filming key scenes there. Entertainment Weekly reports that some of CBS's "Cold Case" sets were damaged by wind gusts, while one of the network's other crime procedurals, "NCIS," was missing several crew members who were busy protecting their homes from the fires. "24" also canceled a shoot on a nearby military base due to heavy smoke.

Other shows affected by the fires, according to The Hollywood Reporter, were ABC's "Big Shots" which canceled a scene in Malibu and FX's "The Riches" where producers had to rethink a shot that would have required the assistance of LA police for traffic control.

The news couldn't be worse for producers hoping to finish as many television shows as possible before a potential screenwriters strike hits next week. --Chris Sardelli
