All Rise Star Simone Missick Breaks Down How They Filmed Episode While Social Distancing



But once she embraced the idea of opening up her home, Missick then had to adjust to being a one-woman crew.

"When you’re working on set, you’ve got entire departments of people where their sole job is to figure out the set design, props, hair, makeup, locations," she explained. "This has made every one of us as actors take on all of those jobs."

In the episode, Judge Benner (Marg Helgenberger) will allow Judge Lola Carmichael (Missick) to preside over a virtual trial. The plot will also follow the characters’ personal lives and how they are dealing with adjusting to working from home amid self-isolation.

In order to make sure each shot looked flawless, the director instructed the actors about camera placement and lighting.

"It makes me value the people in our crew who do it every single day and do it so well," said Missick.

The special coronavirus episode airs Monday, May 4 at 9 p.m. ET on CBS.
