“Filming on HBO’s big-budget drama ‘Westworld’ – which shoots in Santa Clarita near where [a wildfire is raging in Southern California] — was temporarily suspended due to the flames fueled by the Santa Ana winds, the cable network has confirmed,” reports Bryn Elise Sandberg at the Live Feed blog of The Hollywood Reporter.
The story adds, “In addition, production on CBS drama S.W.A.T. has also been temporarily halted due to the fires. ‘Production of @swatcbs has been suspended for the day due to wildfires and unsafe air near our stages,’ read a tweet from the S.W.A.T. writers account. ‘Safety of cast and crew come first. Prayers to all affected by these fires.’ The message was then retweeted by an actress on the series, Stephanie Sigman. ‘Everybody stay safe,’ she added.”
