TV 2nite: “The Night Shift” Interview with Jill Flint & Eoin Macken

The Night Shift is a new drama set at San Antonio Memorial, where a group of dedicated and unpredictable doctors burn the midnight oil. Merlin actor Eoin Macken is T.C. Callahan, a military vet whose medical talents doesn’t include safely navigating through politics. With his ex-girlfriend Dr. Jordan Alexander (Jill Flint) serving as his shift boss and the hospital’s leader Michael Ragosa (Freddy Rodriguez) solely concerned with the financial bottom line, T.C.’s job is filled with its share of headaches.

Rodriguez understands the various compromises Ragosa must make, even if he comes off as a complete jerk to the rest of his staff. “Can you imagine having to look at a patient or a doctor and to have to tell them that they have to turn this patient away,” said the actor, whose previous TV work includes the HBO series Six Feet Under.  “Or they can’t treat this patient who is dying, whose kids are waiting to see if their father or mother are going to survive, and you have to be the (person) who says, ‘they can’t be treated.’ It’s not that it’s coming from a personal place, it’s coming from a business place. It’s simply their job.”

In the following video, Jill Flint talks about how she learned to drive in preparation for her work on The Night Shift, which shoots in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Since she’s a New York resident (she adds that she’s “Brooklyn all the way”), Flint talks about how she avoided left hand turns during her drives to and from work. Co-star Eoin Macken is amused by her story:

The Night Shift, co-starring Ken Leung (Lost) and Jeananne Goossen, premieres tonight on NBC (10 pm et/pt).
