John Stamos' Big Shot production stalls after crew member tests COVID positive
Big Shot, produced by ABC Studios, received a series order from Disney+ in October 2019
Production of actor John Stamos' upcoming Disney+ series Big Shot was halted for a day after a crew member tested positive for coronavirus. The decision to halt shooting was taken on Tuesday night after a positive COVID-19 test was produced as part of the regular screening of crew members. It was later proved to be a "false positive" and shooting is expected to resume soon.
Big Shot, produced by ABC Studios, received a series order from Disney+ in October 2019. The comedy-drama hails from Big Little Lies creator David E Kelley, who is also serving as an executive producer.
Stamos stars as a temperamental college basketball coach who gets fired from his job and must take a teaching and coaching job at an elite all-girls private high school. Bill D'Elia directs the first episode and also serves as executive producer.
Brad Garrett pitched the original idea to Kelley. He will serve as writer and executive producer.
