SWINE FLU PANIC CLOSED DOWN BROTHERS & SISTERS PRODUCTION
Swine flu finally reared it’s ugly head in Hollywood and naturally everybody panicked- for awhile. Calmer heads eventually prevailed. Last week the cast and crew of Brothers & Sisters, including Sally Field, Rob Lowe, Calista Flockhart, and Rachel Griffiths, received ominous phone calls from the production office telling them that “someone” connected to the show had tested POSITIVE for swine flu, but they refused to identify who it was. The caller told everyone NOT to report for work the next day until further notice. The cast and crew were alarmed, but the next day they were reassured that docs declared it was safe to return to the set – but anyone who felt even slightly ill should stay home. We’re betting that germ conscious actors avoided the craft table for awhile.
