As we blatantly hinted at you here…Deadline Hollywood is now reporting:
Encouraging news for midseason NBC series The Night Shift – the network has ordered three additional scripts of the medical drama. Night Shift, about the men and women who work the wee hours at San Antonio Memorial, has an 8-episode order (pilot +7) as part of that complex four-show deal between NBC and Sony TV last May that included pickups of The Blacklist (with guaranteed Monday 10 PM slot), Welcome To The Family and The Night Shift and a renewal of Community. The Night Shift pilot tested very well, with Irish actor Eoin Macken, who plays the lead, touted as a potential breakout star. Creators Gabe Sachs and Jeff Judah executive produce with Pierre Morel.

And now we know!
Buzz around town a few weeks ago was all about Eriq La Salle sightings in the Q. Leading cast and NM crew were were privy to La Salle’s objective on set, which was apparently to whip them all into shape!
The ER actor was hard at work at Albuquerque Studios directing a “wicked bloody” episode of the new NBC drama The Night Shift.
La Salle, an accomplished actor, director, writer and producer, recently added author to his resume with his first dark thriller, “Laws of Depravity”. Check it out here, where Amazon his this to say about him:
Actor/director Eriq La Salle is best known to worldwide television audiences for his award-winning portrayal of the commanding Dr. Peter Benton on the critically acclaimed and history-making medical drama ER. Educated at Juilliard and NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, La Salle’s credits range from Broadway to film roles opposite Eddie Murphy in “Coming to America” and Robin Williams in “One Hour Photo.” He has also become a sought-after director, taking the helm for HBO and several episodics including Law & Order, CSI: New York and A Gifted Man, while maintaining a still prolific acting career. This year he marks the beginning of the third element of his triple-threat career with the publication this summer of his first book in a trilogy, the page-turning thriller Laws of Depravity.
The highly anticipated New Mexico production of NBC’s new drama The Night Shift is due to air in the 2013/2014 season!
Here are a few pics of La Salle, on set in NM, and with local actor Jackamoe Buzzell.

At San Antonio Memorial, those who work the 7pm – 7am shift are a special breed. Welcome to the night shift, where every day is a fight between the heroic efforts of saving lives and the hard truths of running a hospital. After a grueling tour of duty in Afghanistan, adrenaline junkie TC Callahan became accustomed to combat, but he could have never guessed that his toughest battles would be fought right here at home. TC and his irreverent team of late night docs know how to let off steam with the casual prank or two, but when lives are at stake, they are all business.
Unfortunately, the night shift is now under new management, and boss Michael Ragosa is more interested in cutting costs than helping people. But TC has never met a rule he couldn’t break, or a person he won’t stand up to. And it’s clear that not even Jordan, TC’s ex-girlfriend and now Ragosa’s second in charge, has a chance at keeping him in line. If Ragosa wants a war… he’ll get one.
Executive producers/writers Gabe Sachs and Jeff Judah (“Diary of a Wimpy Kid”).

UPDATE 7/2/2013: Breaking Bad creator, Vince Gillagan says Saul Goodman Spinoff Moving ‘Full Speed Ahead’ -The Wrap TV
As the world anxiously awaits the final eight episodes of the “best show on television”, Breaking Bad fans are equally curious for the verdict on what comes next for cast & crew.
Even before we learn the fate of Walter White & Co. Br Ba devotees look forward to the most likely spin-off in which the best, slimiest, lawless lawyer around, Saul Goodman will once again ease all with, “Better Call Saul”.
Best news for New Mexico is that if a deal is indeed inked for the series, the most likely place for the Saul Goodman led series to take place would be original series home, Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Last fall NBC shot the gritty drama pilot “After Hours” across the interstate, as a prospect for last season’s television schedule. After not making the first cut, then being volleyed back and forth from the pick-up list to the tentative list, an off-cycle short order has been placed for at least four episodes of the show.
And as we’ve previously reported, up north some very special goings-on are going on around the return of the A&E hit series, Longmire and the highly anticipated Seth MacFarlane adaptation of Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey for Fox television.
