With COVID-19 shutting down every non-essential business many have had to engineer creative ways to continue their business and keep people safe. Tyler Perry Studios opened last year and is a massive fortress that Tyler said from day one is self-sufficient and each fixture is livable. When he thought of this we doubt he knew he would be testing out the process of doing it within the first year.
“BET+ comedy Bruh—got its 19-episode order in the bag in just four days. To accomplish his stacked summer of mid-pandemic shooting, which began July 9 at his studios in Atlanta, the prolific writer/director used a strictly maintained method of virus prevention that’s been described as the “quarantine bubble model.
There were zero positive cases once cast and crew members had gone through the check-in process and kicked off production. All told, there were four confirmed positive tests out of 360 total during the check-in part of the process for Perry’s Sistas series, with all four occurring in crew members.
Perry and his team bagged a total of 32 shoot days and 51 quarantine days for the four series, also including The Oval. Perry and the crew took seven-day breaks between all but Ruthless and Bruh, which were shot back to back.”
BET+ will not be lacking with content anytime soon and being able to shoot like this is just another benefit to Tyler owning his entire production studio.
