The local entertainment industry is showing resilience, ingenuity and entrepreneurial spirit by finding creative ways around coronavirus restrictions for public gatherings.

Events DC is launching a new virtual platform called GATHER to livestream events from a brand new production studio at the Walter E.

Washington Convention Center.

“Today, more than ever before, is such an important time for people and communities to come together – and conventions and meetings, sports and entertainment have the power to do that – even virtually,” Events D.C. president Gregory O’Dell said.

The state-of-the-art production studio spans 19,000 square feet and comes fully equipped with rigging, AV and lighting capabilities, as well as dynamic LED screens.

“With this new multi-platform virtual venue and production studio, Events DC presents a distinct opportunity for enhancing client experiences with the ability to offer state-of the art technology, customization of content and the enrichment of both in-person and virtual experiences,” O’Dell said.

Initial programming includes exclusive performances from the D.C. Jazz Fest, including a live concert by acclaimed harmonicist Frédéric Yonnet and the Band with No Name.

It will also livestream the Restaurant Association Metropolitan Washington’s annual RAMMY Awards, as well as performances from the MusicianShip’s WAMMIE Awards.

Expect live readings of iconic scripts provided by Film Independent; a conversation with the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum director Ellen Stofan and SiriusXM founder and United Therapeutics’ CEO Martine Rothblatt; and a NASA salute to “Hidden Figure” Mary W. Jackson, the first Black female engineer at NASA.

This fall TV season has definitely been anything but normal. Usually around this time of year, we would be gearing up for the premieres of our broadcast faves. But since the global coronavirus outbreak has disrupted production schedules across the industry, many shows have seen their returns to the fall lineup delayed by months, if not more.

However, there is some good news: The casts of series like Law & Order: SVU, The Conners and Superstore are back at work, filming under strict safety protocols, and they’re sharing on-set photos showcasing the new realities of production (as well as some mild spoilers). Among the highlights in the attached gallery: The Grey’s Anatomy docs keep their distance; Riverdale‘s Archie goes shirtless (duh!); Batwoman‘s Alice is back in costume; and NCIS hits a milestone.

Our annual roundup also features snapshots from the final seasons of Supernatural and Shameless. (COVID-19 can’t stop the Winchesters and the Gallaghers!) Plus, we’ve included some Falcon and the Winter Soldier action because it’s never too early to get excited for the new Marvel series.

Browse our gallery of back-to-work photos (click here for direct access), and make sure to bookmark this page for updates. Then hit the comments to tell us which returning shows you’re most excited to see back on your TV.
