Filming will be carried out with restrictions on spectator attendance or suspended.

Gazprom-Media Holding, which includes nine terrestrial and 32 special-interest TV channels, has put restrictions on the filming of its shows and programs due to the deteriorating pandemic situation, official orders from the federal government, as well as restrictions imposed by the Governments of Moscow and the Moscow Region.

A number of projects had their filming processes adjusted in order to minimise the health risks to the film crews and avoid the spread of COVID-19. Filming is now done without spectators or with socially distanced seating arrangements, PCR tests or vaccination certificates. People over 60 and people who are required to self-isolate are not allowed on film sets.

These rules apply to the filming carried out in studios and pavilions. 

The filming of shows where a full audience is required by the project’s format or a franchise agreement are suspended. The filming will resume when the pandemic situation stabilises. This includes the filming of TNT’s IGRA (GAME) where full capacity is a crucial part of the show.

Filming of projects that do not require spectators will continue without restrictions. Projects that are filmed outside of Moscow and the Moscow region will continue in accordance with local regulations.

The people’s health - that of the film crews as well as our viewers - is the top priority for all of Gazprom-Media Holding’s companies.
