KUWTK director wore a ‘hazmat suit’ to prep Kim Kardashian’s $60M LA mansion for filming under lockdown – The Sun

KEEPING Up With The Kardashians fans will thankfully be able to keep up with the family – despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic – thanks to one director who entered their homes with a hazmat suit.

Momager Kris Jenner was quick to come together with the show's producers on a workaround for camera crew as the ongoing coronavirus pandemic saw the crews forced to leave the Kardashian homes.

In response, Kris "hired a director of photography and a technician, who put on a precautionary hazmat suit and configured brightly-lit rooms in Kim's self-described 'minimalist monastery' mansion and in Khloé's Calabasas home."

"There they set up phone-friendly tripods, which were carefully cleaned with sanitary wipes to combat the transfer of any germs.

"The family waited 24 hours before entering the rooms to further avoid any potential COVID-19 contamination."

The information comes from Elle magazine, during an interview with executive producer Farnaz Farjam, who revealed that fans will see Kim's attempt to home school her two eldest children, North and Saint.

Farnaz also revealed that their original plans – to have the family film themselves with handheld iPhones – backfired because "if Kris gets annoyed and walks out of the camera angle, it's not like we can follow her and continue shooting."

"She has to come back onto the screen and explain [why she walked away]," said Farnaz.

The new series will return in September, and a new teaser for the series, released at the end of April, showed just how the new episodes may look.

As a sound bite from Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti is heard, announcing the city's stay-at-home order, the family is shown doing exactly what the rest of the country currently is also doing: nothing.

With lots of handheld footage and to-camera interviews, the family is seen socially distancing themselves from each other, and enjoying weekly Zoom dates catching up on the gossip.

Kylie Jenner also sadly reveals that the virus finally hit home for her when someone close to her tested positive for the virus.

"It's scary when it's someone so close to home…HAS tested positive," she said in a teaser for the September return of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

The beauty filmed the confessional herself, during lockdown with her daughter Stormi, Stormi's dad Travis Scott and her bff Stassi, during the stay at home order.

It's likely she's referring to one of the first diagnosed cases of coronavirus on March 6, which was a father and his two sons who returned from a ski-trip in Italy and lived nearby to her Calabasas home.
