LOS ANGELES — Noise and other disruptions caused by a Hollywood writers' picket line caused filming to stop Monday at a location for CBS' "Cane."
The shutdown came as about 20 writers chanted, screamed and used a bullhorn outside a cafe near the CBS lot in Studio City.
Tom Hogan, a location manager for the show, said he hired two off-duty Los Angeles police officers and five private security guards to maintain order.
He said the filming began hours before the picketers arrived and involved a script that was finished several weeks ago.
After the shoot was stopped, writers cheered and rejoined picketers around the corner at the studio.
