The industry is slowly recovering from this and is getting back on track slowly and steadily. Amongst these are BET who started the production for two of their show a few months back which are The Oval and Sistas. Their filming is going pretty good and the crew has taken every precaution so that they can ensure the safety of everyone. One more reason for this is because of guidelines that were issued by the Georgia governor that are important if someone wants to film anything.
