California Film Commission chief Colleen Bell says state officials are making progress on hammering out details for the resumption of film and TV production following industrywide shutdowns in light of the coronavirus pandemic. But they’re moving forward cautiously as the process is complicated, to say the least.
“We are having daily conversations about the protocols,” Bell told Variety on Wednesday. “We know that people are going to want to get back to work so we’re planning the re-entry period. We are handling a massive amount of inquiries.”

The commissioner emphasized that there’s no clear timetable in place yet for when stay-at-home orders will be relaxed or lifted.
“This is going to be complicated,” she said. “A lot of people who are very smart are working on figuring this out. I had seven back-to-back Zoom calls one day.”
