July 31, 2020. Summarized by summa-bot.

KJ Smith is a part of history.

Smith spoke to CNN from the set of her show at Tyler Perry Studios where she said she felt fortunate to be working for Perry, who made history himself as the first African American to fully own a film production studio.

"It feels like an incredible blessing that I work for someone who made provisions and made sure that we were safe," Smith said.

No cases of Covid-19 were reported during the filming, he said.

"I made sure that the cast and crew and everybody wore their masks when they weren't on set because I do know for a fact that masks help stop the spread — scientifically, I know that," he said.

Smith portrays Andrea "Andi" Barnes on the show and told CNN life was good on the set dubbed "Camp Quarantine. "

Smith told CNN the regular testing helped mitigate some of her anxiety about working during the pandemic.

"There's extra pressure for (the cast and crew) to take care of each other," she said.

Smith, who is the lead actress and producer on the forthcoming film, "The Available Wife," said she feels an obligation beyond just the work she loves as an actress.
