The coronavirus pandemic may end up breaking network TV out of its traditional development cycle, according to Deadline's Nellie Andreeva. "I hear Universal Television has put all of its broadcasting pilots on hold," says Andreeva. "None will go into production for at least the next two weeks and likely longer, I have learned. CBS TV Studios is not proceeding with production on their drama pilots. The studio’s handful of comedy pilots — all multi-camera or hybrid — have either already wrapped or are well into production. CBS TV Studios alluded to that in their statement about response to the coronavirus."
