Comedy Central’s veteran series Drunk History has halted production for the day as a result of the raging wildfires in Los Angeles and Ventura counties that have prompted mandatory evacuations of the entire Malibu and Hidden Hills communities. Drunk History had been filming in King Gillette Ranch, a park in the Santa Monica Mountains not far from the affected areas.
“First time I’ve ever pulled the plug on shootingDrunk History,” series creator, executive producer and presenter Derek Waters wrote on Instagram under a photo of him in a cowboy attire and face mask, a huge plumb of smoke rising from the hills behind him. “I love my job but I love my crew more. this ain’t funny. Be safe everyone and save the animals.”
Drunk History is currently filming its upcoming sixth season.
Westworld is not currently in production but one of the filming locations it has been using, the iconic Paramount Ranch, was destroyed by the current fires
