The top award collector at this year's South African Film & Television Award (Safta) has gone on a production break due to the national lockdown.

The lockdown has really put a damp on life as Mzansi and the world knows it with many normal activities having to be paused as many people stay home to fight the spread of the coronavirus.

Mzansi's productions houses during level 5 have had to put their scripts and cameras down. As of lockdown level 4, many production houses have returned to work but just not soon enough as now most have run out of episodes and are forced to go on production breaks.

The River on Friday announced that it will be going off-air for two weeks as they make up for the lost time.

"As you know, Covid-19 has affected all of us. Like all other productions, we also had to stop shooting during Level 5 lockdown, which affected us in profound way; resulting in us not having enough episodes to submit to 1Magic for broadcast. We have resumed shooting, and will be back in two weeks," shared Tshedza Pictures who produces The River.
