Canadian show shut down by swine flu

“Republic of Doyle” falls victim to the H1N1 pandemic

by

Production on the upcoming CBC show Republic of Doyle has been shut down, not by labour disputes or lack of money, but by swine flu. The filming of the comedy-drama series, which is produced in St. John’s, was halted when two crew members contracted the H1N1 virus. The producers say that they will not resume production on the show until it is certain that they can proceed without risk of infection to the rest of the crew or to bystanders.
