NBCUniversal Halts Production on 35 TV Shows Amid Coronavirus Pandemic

NBCUniversal has suspended production on about 35 series due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The company’s announcement concerns the majority of its shows across all entertainment production units, Deadline reports.

The list includes “all Dick Wolf dramas still in production, Chicago Fire, Chicago P.D., Chicago Med and Law & Order: SVU for NBC and FBI for CBS, as well as NBC’s New Amsterdam — all from Universal Television — upcoming limited series for Peacock Angelyne starring Emmy Rossum from UCP and NBCU’s breakout freshman syndicated talker The Kelly Clarkson Show.”

The series will wrap up their current episodes when possible. Most shows are expected to continue production, but the Dick Wolf dramas will not be coming back, as they are close to finishing their seasons.

The Kelly Clarkson Show has one more original airing tomorrow before the hiatus.

“The safety and health of our cast, crew and employees is our top priority,” NBCU said in a statement on Thursday (March 12). “Where possible, we are pausing production for two weeks as a precautionary measure, following which we will reassess and determine an appropriate start date. In some cases, we are accelerating plans to wrap up physical production.”

'Law & Order' Creator Dick Wolf & Wife Noelle to Split After 12 Years of Marriage

Dick Wolf and his wife Noelle are going their separate ways.

The 72-year-old Law & Order creator filed paperwork on December 3, TMZ reported on Monday (January 7).

He is not asking for a divorce, but rather a legal separation. By doing so, he immediately separates his assets from hers. There is reportedly a prenup involved as well.

Noelle reportedly filed for legal separation last Friday (January 4), in which she asks for spousal support.

The two were married for 12 years, and have two children together, ages 8 and 11.

This was Dick‘s third marriage. He was in a legal battle for twelve years with his second wife, Christine.

“The lawyers for the parties are in the process of negotiations,” Dick‘s legal team told TMZ.

“It’s a lesson in being present and to not be thinking ahead,” Mariska continued. “If you asked me 20 years ago, I never thought I’d be here 20 years later, and I am fulfilled and I love my co-stars and it’s an incredible collaboration with the producers and the writers, so I’m really enjoying it.”
