* ''Series/TheWestWing'': John Spencer who played Leo [=McGarry=], died shortly into filming for the seventh season. His seven final episodes were shown, and Leo, who was Matt Santos' presidential running mate, was said to be on a campaign tour for the remainder of the season. At the beginning of the episode "Running Mates", airing January 8, 2006, Martin Sheen introduced the show with a tribute to Spencer and to Leo. The episode "Election Day Pt. 1" had Leo's death written into the script, with his assistant Annabeth discovering him in his hotel room. In "Election Day Pt. 2", Santos wins. One of the producers says that they changed the outcome of the election so it wouldn't be such a downer for Santos to both have his running mate die and lose the election. The following episode, "Requiem", showed Leo's funeral in the National Cathedral.

* The short-lived CBS action series ''Cover-Up'' had a case of this involving a death which occurred during the actual filming of the series. Jon-Erik Hexum, who played the original sidekick/love-interest to the main character, accidentally killed himself during a recording break by shooting himself in the head with a blank pistol cartridge, apparently in the belief that it would just cause a harmless bang and not realizing the serious dangers of such an act (the pressure blast from the cartridge exploding fractured his skull and forced pieces of it into his brain). The series replaced his character with a SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute and explained it by having the character die off-screen during a solo mission.
