David Boreanaz illness halts 'Bones'

Production expected to resume Tuesday

The jitters over a possible swine flu outbreak in the U.S. hit the set of Fox's dramedy "Bones" on Monday.

Production on the show was shut down for one day because star David Boreanaz was sick with flu-like symptoms.

"First time in 'Bones' history we are shut down from production," "Bones" creator Hart Hanson tweeted. "Damn swine flu! That's gonna cut into Christmas hiatus."

A spokesman for 20th Century Fox TV, which produces "Bones," downplayed the production stoppage.

"David is out with the flu and the show shut down today since he was in every scene," the spokesman said. "We hope to resume production tomorrow."
