COVID-19 has yet to stop Tyler Perry from working
It’s been just a few short days since Tyler Perry was named to Forbe’s billionaire list and he is continuing to show us just why he is a billionaire. The Tyler Perry Studios opened back up on July 9 to begin filming new episodes of “Sistas” and has since filmed 82 episodes of it, along with the BET series “The Oval”, and BET+’s “Ruthless” and “Bruh”. The new series “Bruh” was the shortest order and shoot with 19 episodes and four days of filming. The BET+ comedy, which started filming September 3, finished today.
According to NY Post, Perry filmed the new series during the COVID pandemic by using a “quarantine bubble” model. He sequestered cast and crew on the lot for the duration of the shoot. Perry’s quarantine bubble model involves check-in testing as everyone arrives at the studio. They are all required to stay in their rooms until test results come back. During the check-in phase for “Sistas”, there were 4 positive tests out of 360 people, none of which were involved with the cast. There was another positive test from a cast member of “Ruthless”. There were no positive cases once cast and crew checked in and began production.
Tyler Perry will celebrate his birthday on September 13, followed by the acceptance of the Governor’s Award at the Primetime Emmy Awards on September 20.
