The elite squad of actors are back at work playing detectives on "Law & Order: SVU" after Hurricane Sandy shut down production. The show, which films at Chelsea Piers, resumed production for on-location shoots. Their homebase is still without power.

Series showrunner and executive producer Warren Leight updated fans on Twitter.

cast and crew-many still without power, heat-will resume shooting Friday, on location, since our Chelsea stage still dark. Thanks all

cast and crew somehow resumed shooting this morning. We are muddied but unbowed.

A rep for Universal TV told HuffPost TV that the East Coast productions of "30 Rock," "Celebrity Apprentice," "Do No Harm" and "Deception" were all back at work. "30 Rock" and "Celebrity Apprentice" resumed production on October 31.

CBS confirmed that "The Good Wife," "Blue Bloods" and "Elementary" resumed production on October 31. Fox had no damage to report on their East Coast sets.

According to EW, ABC's "666 Park Avenue" suffered set damage after the studio flooded. “I went to check them out on the night of the storm at 10 p.m. and they were under 6 feet of water -- the entire complex,” Peter Kapsalis, owner of Cine Magic Riverfront Studios, told EW. “It wasn’t in very good shape.” It could be three weeks before the studio could be usable again, but Kapsalis said Warner Bros., the producers of "666," have been "a godsend."
