TV garden shock: ZDF deletes show because of Corona from the program

The plan was clear for a long time. The production team should actually start preparing for the live show on Fuerteventura next week. A total of three shows should be shot on the Canary Island. But now the "Fernsehgarten on Tour" show with moderator Andrea Kiewel will not take place. The start of the outdoor season has been canceled. There would be no alternative date.

But not a kick-off tour

The continuing danger of the corona virus is to blame. This makes it impossible to put on a show. "The three recordings of the ZDF show 'Fernsehgarten on Tour' planned for March 24-26, 2020 on the Canary Island of Fuerteventura will be canceled due to the current restrictions caused by the corona virus and the resulting logistical difficulties in realizing such a foreign production , "a spokesman for the ZDF told" Bild ".

And what about the other shows that are scheduled to air on May 10th? This is currently still being discussed in Mainz. "Current developments regarding Covid-19 are evaluated daily. All productions are checked in individual cases," promises a spokesman for the ZDF. In any case, we keep our fingers crossed and strongly hope that all further future shows can take place without any problems.
