The Government's UK-wide, £500m Film and TV Production Restart Scheme (introduced in July 2020) helped film and TV shows struggling to get insurance for COVID-19 related risks to get back into production. It made direct compensation available to producers that incurred costs caused by coronavirus abandonment or delays to eligible pre-existing and new productions.

The Scheme was administered by Marsh Commercial and closed for applications on 30th April 2022.

Details about the Scheme can be found on the Government website here.
