A CBS drama series was forced to halt production because the show’s star had to undergo surgery. Deadline.com reports that the midseason drama "Intelligence" halted production Wednesday because star Meghan Ory is on medical leave following an appendectomy.
The project filmed around Ory’s absence for several days, but had to stop after it ran out of scenes that don’t feature the actress. Her doctors have advised that she needs more time for recovery.
She is expected to return to work Monday, when taping should resume, the piece notes. The project’s other lead is Josh Holloway, with Marg Helgenberger of "CSI" in a large supporting role.
The drama is slated to debut Feb. 24.
