Rapper Snoop Dogg combined with Wiz Khalifa and Xzibit for a video shoot at a Sunset Strip burger joint over the weekend amid eased coronavirus restrictions.
A jovial Snoop was spotted at Mel’s Diner, signaling an end to restrictions that have kept the entertainment industry quiet since March.
While Snoop smoked and ate between takes at the diner, fellow musician John Legend was also shooting his own video nearby at the Los Feliz part of L.A.
Hollywood’s unions over the weekend published a detailed breakdown of guidelines that television and film productions will be expected to follow in coming months as the industry works to get back on its feet after a three-month COVID-19 pandemic shutdown.
The joint report from the Directors Guild of America, SAG-AFTRA, IATSE and the Teamsters outlines what will be required of productions that want to begin filming again, with such restrictions expected to continue until there is a vaccine for COVID-19 or other developments that would reduce fears of spreading the coronavirus.
Frequent COVID-19 testing will be required, as will the creation of zones to provide maximum protection to those in the crew and cast who can’t wear protective equipment or maintain social distancing.
