Popular HBO show “Westworld” has reportedly been forced to shut down production due to Wildfires in Southern California.
The Hill reported: HBO has suspended filming for one of its shows in southern California over safety concerns about wildfires raging in the area.
The network halted production of its show “Westworld” on Tuesday when wildfires neared its filming location in Los Angeles County, it told CNN in a statement. CBS has also had to suspend filming its show “S.W.A.T.”
Los Angeles County is currently facing two major fires as of Tuesday: the 11,000-acre Creek Fire and the 1,000-acre Rye Fire. Officials in nearby Ventura County have issued a mandatory evacuation of 27,000 people as the wind-driven Thomas Fire spread to the Pacific town.
Writers for the CBS show said Tuesday the delay in filming at their location 40 miles outside Los Angeles was due to poor air quality.
