Brazilian audiovisual studios have come up with a safety protocol in order to resume activities, including casting family members to act together and reducing contact between actors as much as possible. 

The document, seen by newspaper O Globo, foresees a three-phase plan to resume activities. Among the shows that have already been resumed is culinary reality show MasterChef, which now has a trolley to bring food to the judges and puts competitors at least 1.5 meters apart from each other.

Since March, all TV filming has been interrupted in Brazil, including the country’s main telenovelas — which had never happened before. The resumption, after three months, comes despite Brazil’s coronavirus infection and death curve continuing to rise. But sector leaders say they are facing a hard time to find funding and government support, not to mention the lack of new content in TV programming.
