The manufacturing crew was on the Capitol Wednesday and Thursday recording the section, in line with CBS. The interviews had been “licensed and pre-arranged” with the lawmakers being interviewed and their congressional aides.

“After leaving the members’ places of work on their final interview of the day, the manufacturing crew stayed to movie stand-ups and different ultimate comedy components within the halls once they had been detained by Capitol Police,” the community mentioned in an announcement.
