HBO Delays Production on SUCCESSION and BARRY; Writing Will Continue

HBO has delayed production on its shows Succession and Barry, amidst the current health crisis, according to Deadline.

"We are looking forward to resuming preproduction when it is safe and healthy for everyone working on our shows to do so," HBO said in a statement. "Where possible, our writers are continuing to write remotely."

This news comes after HBO halted production on its other shows two weeks ago. Succession and Barry, however, were still under evaluation until now.
