Making of “The Pandemic Special”

Following safety protocols during the COVID-19 pandemic, South Park Studios produced “The Pandemic Special” remotely.


The whole crew communicated over video conferences and phone calls for the entire project. Alongside families, the crew set up equipment wherever there was space in the home and upgraded technology to facilitate collaboration.
