Hawaii Five-0 and Grimm alum Brian Tee has joined the cast of NBC’s Chicago Fire spin-off Chicago Med as a series regular. Tee, who starred in Fox pilot Love Is A Four-Letter Word, will play a resident at the hospital who found his calling in medicine after several tours of duty as an Army medic.
Chicago Med is described as an emotional thrill ride through the day-to-day chaos of the city’s most explosive hospital and the courageous team of doctors who hold it together. Familiar faces from the Chicago police and fire departments will intertwine as this third team of Chicago heroes hits the ground running.
Brian Tee is the latest cast addition to the hour-long drama, which has been building its cast since it was picked up to series in May. As TVWise previously reported, Arrow’s Colin Donnell has also boarded the series in a regular role as a Doctor specialising in paediatrics. Returning cast members from the backdoor pilot include Oliver Platt, S. Epatha Merkerson, Laurie Holden, Nick Gehlfuss and Yaya Dacosta.
Originally set to premiere midseason, Chicago Med will now premiere on Tuesday nights this Fall after production on Heartbreaker was pushed due to star Melissa George’s real life pregnancy. Chicago Med was created by Dick Wolf, Matt Olmstead, Michael Brandt and Derek Haas, all of whom serve as executive producers on the Universal Television produced series alongside Danielle Gelber, Peter Jankowski and director Joe Chappelle.
