“Nestor Carbonell (The Morning Show, Lost) stops by New Amsterdam for the second time in Season 4 to direct, but this time, it’s a very different type of medical drama episode.
In “All Night Long,” the team goes out for a night of karaoke and drinking … and then must face the consequences. While it is a departure, we do see them at work, like Dr. Iggy Frome (Tyler Labine) helping a patient confront a past trauma, and dealing with personal problems, like Dr. Floyd Reynolds (Jocko Sims) and Dr. Lyn Malvo (Frances Turner) discussing their future.
Carbonell takes us inside directing the hour.
You directed an episode earlier in the season, but that one was a bit more straightforward. This one is a bit of a departure from the typical medical drama episode. Preview what we’ll see from the doctors.
Nestor Carbonell: You’re absolutely right. It definitely was a departure from the norm. Like you mentioned, I’d shot one episode, “Seed Money,” in the summer, and there were some fun exteriors there that were sort of atypical as well of the show, but nothing to the extent of what we did on this episode. It was so much fun to get to sort of explore all of the characters — our main characters and also some of our supporting casts, like Gladys [Megan Byrne] — in a way that we hadn’t seen them before and in an environment we hadn’t seen them before, doing things like karaoke that we had never seen them do and really letting loose and then dealing with the repercussions of that the next day. So that was really fun sort of to get out of the hospital in such a big way and to do so many great locations in and around New York, some in Brooklyn, a lot of them in Midtown Manhattan.”
