The Late Late Show with James Corden and The Talk, which film in Los Angeles, have joined a long list of TV series to shut down production amid the growing health crises stemming from the coronavirus pandemic. The shows, both produced by CBS TV Studios, announced the decision on Friday. They had previously switched on filming without studio audiences to protect the public.
“We really explored every option to try and put a show on for you, but right now feel the safest thing to do is to stop for a moment and take advice further down the line,” Corden said in a Twitter message to viewers Friday.
