Getting Shut Down by Coronavirus
Thursday, March 19th - It was a rainy evening in downtown Los Angeles and we were setting up for Day 2 of Production on my new TV show Limited Edition. I had spent the past 15 months getting to this point; writing, securing funding, casting, location scouting, rehearsing, shot listing.

Not only would the production have to shut down indefinitely but we weren’t even supposed to be outside of our homes. Everything was immediately put into perspective and the world would be changed forever. Let’s go back a few months.
