Filming on HBO's big-budget drama Westworld - which shoots in Santa Clarita near where the 200-acre brush fire broke out - was temporarily suspended due to the flames fueled by the Santa Ana winds, the cable network has confirmed.
One of the writers for S.W.A.T. tweeted that the safety of the cast and crew are of utmost importance to them, which is why they made a decision to not push through with their shooting schedule. Nobody from the show seems to be in danger, although there's no saying when production will be able to resume.
Wildfires have also forced other studios to halt production on their shows as well.
