The second season of The Morning Show is being rewritten to accommodate the COVID-19 pandemic, actor Mark Duplass said Deadline. He said it was similar to how the script was written to incorporate the #MeToo movement. “We shot two episodes before we shut down due to the pandemic, but I know they’re rewriting as well, which is crazy because that’s what happened in the first season. They had a whole set of scripts [then] and they rewrote everything to include the #MeToo movement, and now we’ve got another bigger global phenomenon to deal with. I don’t know what they are doing but I know they are rewriting, ”Mr. Duplass revealed.
‘Disappointed’ for morning show co-stars who missed Emmy nominations
On Tuesday, Mr. Duplass learned he had been nominated for an Emmy for his performance as producer Chip in the drama. Hers was one of eight nominations the show received. However, there were some missing from the list of candidates, including Reese Witherspoon and Gugu Mbatha-Raw. Karen Pittman and Desean Terry, who gave equally powerful performances, did not receive any nominations either. “I’m disappointed with Reese, I’m disappointed with Karen Pittman, I’m disappointed with Gugu and Desean Terry,” said Mr. Duplass. “There is no doubt in my mind that what Gugu did as a performer was so worthy of this recognition. And I feel the same about Karen Pittman, who had a much calmer, more subtle script.
