Sophia Bush posted on her Instagram on March 10 that they just wrapped the filming of the Pilot and it took 7 weeks???
Normally for each episode of series, it takes about 3 weeks to film. So depend on how many episodes they ordered for the first season.
The Pilot was filmed in Toronto.

Wow, Char, 7 weeks is a loooong time. :shock: I wonder if the show will continue to be filmed in Toronto?

As I've said countless times before . . . I'm happy to see Jason on my TV every week—or so. :wheee

So 7 weeks is way over the norm; does that count the quarentine period as well.

Maybe it took longer time to shoot because of Covid? Or maybe they shot a double pilot episode, didn't they do that with Dig and Star Trek Discovery too? Also, I read a script review of the pilot (I think I may have forgotten to post that here), and it ended with the event that causes Jason's character to end up with his daughter as his boss. Looking at the trailer, it looks like they went a bit beyond that...

You’re welcome!

BTW, everyone...here’s a heads-up for anyone wanting to stream the show: CBS All Access is now part of PARAMOUNT+!!!

I thought this was going to be on straight CBS? Not CBS All Access. I mean they will show it on All Access too - and if you are like me and pay for the upgraded package w/o commercials - it makes viewing so much better - no annoying commercial gaps!!!! But a medical drama will do well on regular CBS - not so sure it would do as well on CBS All Access.

Sorry if I scared you: (“regular”) CBS will air the show. I just mentioned Paramount+ for those who live outside the US (and Canada?), and don’t have access to CBS.

Oh OK! I really hope this one sticks. I’m not a huge fan of medical dramas but I’ll get hooked for Jason!

So do I!

I was a fan of the genre when I was much younger; however, the last medical TV drama I watched was the first season of ER.

I'm not very fond of TV dramas in general. But I'll make an exception for Jason. :D
