  1. Series Pulls Flu Epidemic Episode

    Too soon, and too late. NBC's medical drama New Amsterdam filmed "Pandemic," an episode about deadly influenza overwhelming New York City. But it won't air as scheduled April 7, because its mirror on reality "is too horrifying to look at," said showrunner David Schulner. Now recurring guest star Daniel Dae Kim has tested positive for coronavirus, while a writer and three crew members are sick.

    Is there a bright side? The show joined others in its genre in donating masks and other protective garb to actual front-line medical staff.

    OZY recommends three series to watch while stuck at home.
