Fears over a possible swine flu outbreak in the United States hit the set of the FOX forensic comedy-drama Bones on Monday. Production on the popular series was shut down for one day after star David Boreanaz became ill with swine flu-like symptoms.
But spokesperson for 20th Century Fox TV, which produces the show, downplayed the swine flu stoppage in a statement released late Monday.
“David is out with the flu and the show shut down today since he was in every scene. We hope to resume production tomorrow.”
