CBS freshman drama ALL RISE is the first show to resume production—with a twist.

The legal series will produce an episode remotely, with the series regulars filming from each of their homes, using technology like FaceTime, WebEx, Zoom, and more.

In the hour, judge Lola Carmichael (Simone Missick) will virtually preside over a bench trial. According to CBS, “the series’ characters will be shown managing their ‘new normal’ of everyday reality at home, in order to continue their professional and personal lives, parallel to what the nation is currently confronting…after debating the merits of continuing their work during this time, Judge Benner (Marg Helgenberger) authorizes Lola to preside over a virtual trial that involves a dispute between brothers and a stolen car. Emily (Jessica Camacho) represents the defendant, a graffiti artist, and Mark (Wilson Bethel) prosecutes for the D.A.’s office, marking the first time he tries a case in Lola’s ‘court.’ Also, Mark and Quinn (Lindsey Gort) continue to explore their romantic (and sexual) relationship while quarantined in separate homes; Judge Benner oversees court from afar and struggles to learn how to cook; and Sara (Lindsay Mendez) has to balance her day job with a new side hustle as a food delivery driver. Luke (J. Alex Brinson) and Emily’s relationship is taxed by separation, and germaphobe and type-A Sherri (Ruthie Ann Miles) contends with the new world (dis)order.” Executive producer Michael Robin will direct the hour.

“It’s a unique chance for our ALL RISE family to band together – in our different homes, even cities – to tell a story about resilience, justice and the power of community,” says executive producer Greg Spottiswood in a statement.

The episode will air Monday, May 4 at 9/8c.
