Showtime’s "Homeland" has a plan in place that addresses what to do with the series if real-world events come too close to the themes being handled in the show, reports the New York Post, citing Showtime executive David Nevins.The show’s plot has centered on domestic terrorism.
“There are certain things that will happen in ‘Homeland’ this year that are incredibly politically sensitive," Nevins said. "We have asked the question: What happens if events in the world get in the way of or overlap? It is possible.”
The plan would be to pull the show off the air for a while, said Nevins, the pay-cable channel’s head of programming. "There are always contingencies, but generally it is delay, not cancel,” he added.
