Hurricane Sandy has put a temporary halt to film and TV production in New York City.
New York City officials announced that all film permits in the city have been revoked for Monday and Tuesday because of "Hurricane Sandy and continuing safety precautions,'' according to a statement from the Mayor's Office of Media and Entertainment. "There will be no City authorized outdoor filming within the five boroughs."
At least nine TV shows were affected by the shutdown, including "Blue Bloods" (CBS), "Elementary" (CBS), "Gossip Girl" (CW), "Person of Interest" (CBS), "666 Park Avenue" (ABC) and "The Following" (Fox).
Feature films "Noah" and "Winter's Tale," both starring Russell Crowe, were affected.
Several talk shows also canceled production, including "Katie," "The Colbert Report," "The Daily Show With Jon Stewart" and "Jimmy Kimmel Live," which usually films in Los Angeles but was scheduled to begin a week of heavily publicized shows Monday from Brooklyn, Kimmel’s home borough.
