NBC has pulled an episode of its popular medical drama “New Amsterdam” due to it centering around a fictional flu pandemic.
In a statement, NBC said: “New Amsterdam has an episode that was written some time ago that focuses on a flu epidemic in New York City. Being sensitive to the current climate, the producers, network and studio have decided that the episode will not air on NBC on April 7 as previously scheduled.”
Creator David Schulner adds: “I am a writer of fiction. But if I may say, the world needs a lot less fiction right now, and a lot more facts.” The episode was originally scheduled to air on April 7th but NBC will now air reruns of the series on March 31st and April 7th before the season finale on April 14th.
