Sets for ABC's '666 Park Avenue' Damaged by Hurricane; Other Shows Resume Production EW, THR
Sets for ABC's "666 Park Avenue" were damaged by Hurricane Sandy on Monday, making it tougher for the show to get back on track with production, reports EW.com's Inside TV.
The show's set is at Brooklyn's Cine Magic Riverfront Studios, which suffered severe damage when the building was flooded during the hurricane, the piece reports.
"I went to check them out on the night of the storm at 10 p.m. and they were under 6 feet of water -- the entire complex,” said Cine Magic Riverfront Studios owner Peter Kapsalis. “It wasn’t in very good shape.”
Some sets might be salvaged, he said, and it could be nearly three weeks until taping resumes in the studio.
Silvercup Studios in Long Island City made it through the hurricane without damage. Several shows started production again Wednesday, including "30 Rock," "Elementary" and "Person of Interest," the piece adds.
Nevertheless, permits for exterior shoots have been suspended by New York City through at least Friday, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The city's office of media and entertainment issued 17 permits Wednesday, although all were for interior studio production.
