Production

Jon Sen and Kate Oates continued as Executive Producer and Senior Executive Producer. As there were restrictions due to filming with COVID19, New way of filming scenes had to be created. This included filming a scene with no cast member then filming with one cast member, alternatinate the cast members and then merging the footage together into a whole scene.
