The ongoing writers strike has caused another disruption, this time affecting the production of The Chi.
Deadline revealed that the popular drama, set in Chicago, was able to film on Friday morning before they had to relocate to a different site. However, upon arrival, they encountered an already another picket line.
Consequently, no filming was completed on Friday. Deadline also reported that the series’ shooting was interrupted last week. The production is now expected to continue with filming on Monday.
On Chicago’s south side, an average day finds kids prepping for school as their parents head off to work, young adults trying to make a living, and the elders keeping an eye on things from their front porches. But in this tough neighborhood, real dangers threaten daily to squelch dreams, and the simplest decisions can have life or death consequences. The Chi is a timely coming-of-age drama series centered on a group of residents who become linked by coincidence but bonded by the need for connection and redemption.
“The Chi” is a production of Disney’s 20th Television and is broadcast on Showtime within the United States. Furthermore, the series can be viewed in various countries, such as the UK and Australia, via Disney+.
