TLC shuts down filming of ‘Jon & Kate’

Jon Gosselin sets network cease-and-desist order

TLC network has shut down filming of the children on “Jon & Kate Plus 8” after receiving a cease-and-desist order from their father, Jon Gosselin.

In a statement, the network said production would remain suspended “pending further conversations” between both Gosselins, who are parents of young twins and sextuplets. Filming not directly involving the kids continues, TLC said Thursday.

The Insider Web site reported Thursday that Gosselin demanded through his lawyers that the TLC production crew vacate the property of the family home in Pennsylvania.

In its statement, TLC said it remained “deeply disappointed at his continued erratic behavior. He and the family were shooting as recently as last Friday, without incident. …”

“Despite Jon Gosselin’s repeated self-destructive and unprofessional actions, he remains under an exclusive contract with TLC,” the network said.

Gosselin’s lawyer, Mark Jay Heller, did not immediately return calls to The Associated Press.

The Gosselins filed for divorce in June, after weeks of reports of marital discord.

On Monday, TLC announced that the weekly series would be renamed “Kate Plus Eight,” with a reduced involvement by Jon Gosselin.
