It's been a long time since 50 speed was used for film/tv. Almost everything now is shot in 500 speed these days, probably so studios don't have to use so much lighting equipment.
Yes, nowadays most studio interior work is shot at ISO 500. And while it's true Kodak hasn't made an ISO 50 tungsten balanced film since the late 60s, they introduced an ISO 50 daylight balanced EXR film in 1989 and they've kept making 50D ever since. Their VISION3 50D is the finest grain film they've ever produced:
