CBS To Produce 'All Rise' Quarantine Episode During Coronavirus Pandemic

All Rise is set to produce a quarantine focused episode that will next month.

THR reports that the cast will start up production again for the episode, that will focus on the coronavirus pandemic and see the characters adjusting to a new normal from inside their homes.

According to a release, the episode will see Judge Lola Carmichael (Simone Missick) conducting a virtual bench trial, with Emily (Jessica Camacho) representing the defendant and Mark (Wilson Bethel) prosecuting.

“It’s a unique chance for our All Rise family to band together — in our different homes, even cities — to tell a story about resilience, justice and the power of community,” executive producer Greg Spottiswood shared about the first episode of its’ kind.

The episode will use FaceTime, Zoom, WebEx and other social media and online technology to film the virtual episode.

Virtual footage will be shot in each of the actors’ homes, with producers using visual effects to create the necessary backgrounds, and a cinematographer operating solo from a vehicle will also film footage of the empty streets of Los Angeles as it operates under social-distancing rules, with nonessential businesses closed.

In addition to the trial storyline, viewers will also see Mark and Quinn (Lindsey Gort) exploring their relationship while quarantined in different houses, Sara (Lindsay Mendez) taking a side job as a food delivery driver and Judge Benner (Marg Helgenberger) both overseeing the court and learning how to cook.

All Rise currently airs on Mondays on CBS.
