False Positive Test Halts Shooting of John Stamos’ ‘Big Shot’

John Stamos

A positive test on set halted shooting of the new Disney Plus series “Big Shot”, starring John Stamos. Thankfully, the test turned out to be a false positive.

The crew member tested positive on Tuesday, while the crew were undergoing their regular screening procedure, following new COVID filming guidelines.

Many questions have been raised about the efficacy of the rapid tests usually performed on set, as they have the tendency to produce both a lot of false negatives and a lot of false positives.

“Big Shot” follows Stamos, who stars as a college basketball coach who gets fired due to his anger issues, and ends up coaching at an elite girls-only private high school.

The show is produced by ABC Studios, but was ordered by Disney Plus in October of 2019. “Big Shot” is a dramedy produced by David E. Kelley, who was also behind “Big Little Lies”.
