The economy has been shuttered by the coronavirus.

With over 2.6 million cases worldwide and over 180,00 deaths, and over 830,000 cases in the United States, the lives of millions of Americans have drastically changed. 

And if that wasn't clear from the day-to-day differences, you can turn on your TV and see anchors from various news outlets bring you the latest from their homes. 

And the changes have also forced Hollywood to all but shutter as many productions have come to a standstill in order to abide by the social distancing guidelines and also follow the stay at home orders put in place.

"When it comes to production, almost all filming has now been stopped globally, with the exception of a few countries like Korea and Iceland. This has been devastating for millions of workers in the TV and film industry - electricians, hair and make-up artists, carpenters and drivers who are often paid hourly wages and work project-to-project," Netflix noted in a letter following its earnings. 

While companies, such as Netflix, are getting a boost from so many people being cooped up in their homes, the question is: What's Hollywood going to look like when states start to reopen?

Rebecca Rose Woodland, litigator and legal analyst, joined TheStreet's Katherine Ross to weigh in on what this all means.
