Hollywood's biggest studios have closed down production in the wake of the terrorist attacks in New York and Washington D. C. Filming on most films and television shows has been cancelled. Meanwhile all major concerts have been cancelled including MADONNA's and the BLACK CROWE's LA concert. Many non-news networks, such as VH1, MTV and even QVC have switched from normal programming to coverage of the attacks.
All courthouses in Los Angeles have been closed, delaying many cases including a preliminary hearing in the child-abuse case against comedian PAULA POUNDSTONE. Tens of thousands are feared dead in the attacks which occurred Tuesday (11SEP01) morning in New York and Washington D. C. (MB/WN/ES)
