NBC pauses production on midseason drama 'Crisis'
The Washington D.C.-set hostage drama "Crisis" -- this is the Dermot Mulroney one, not to be confused with Dylan McDermott's struggling "Hostages" -- has taken a break for a creative "course correction."
Per Deadline.com, "Crisis" took a production hiatus this week so that the writers could "tweak storylines and work on scripts." In addition, the site reports that the drama, which also features Gillian Anderson in its ensemble, has added senior-level writers.
The pause came after production wrapped on the drama's fifth episode. Thus far, "Crisis" doesn't have a premiere date on NBC.
Deadline is correct to note that it isn't uncommon for midseason dramas to take a creative pause pre-premiere and that NBC's "Awake" was widely hailed for the transition the drama made post-hiatus. That didn't help "Awake" when it came to ratings or longevity, of course.
