Crew members on the set of Apple TV+ original series “Mythic Quest” are venting to media outlets after producers called the production one of the “safest places you can be outside of your homes” despite two reported COVID clusters.
Citing sources familiar with the matter, Variety reports show creator and star Rob McElhenney in early December sought to reassure cast and crew of the production’s safety. After being informed of a “several” positive cases on Dec. 4, McElhenney suspended production and sent a memo to staff the next day.”For as alarming as this sounds, we have been expecting this for weeks,” the note reads. “The numbers in the county are spiking and consequently our numbers are doing the same. But to date there remains ZERO evidence of any transmission at work. Our set continues to be one of the safest places you can be outside of your homes.”
