Remedy Season 2: Medical Drama Returns With Explosive Premiere
  24 marzo 2015   Publicado por stardust


On the TV series “Remedy,” not everyone is cut out for the family business.

Last season, the freshman drama found medical school dropout and recovering drug addict Griffin Conner (Dillon Casey) spiralling out of control. To get his life back on track, he accepted a porter job at Bethune General Hospital, where his father Allen (Enrico Colantoni) acted as Chief of Staff. To complicate matters, his sisters Mel (Sara Canning) and Sandy (Sarah Allen) are a general surgeon and ICU nurse there, respectively. The show put the Conner clan, as well as the health care profession hierarchy, under a microscope as the family coped with their new strained set of circumstances.

When “Remedy” kicks off Season 2, it’s nine months later and the Conners have moved on with their lives. However, an explosion in the hospital immediately throws them off balance … and that’s just the beginning. Personal demons resurface. Charming new Dr. Peter Cutler (Niall Matter) causes ripples with Allen and Mel. Occupations shift. There’s a lot going on this year.

On the set of “Remedy” in November, 2014, Canning, Casey, Colantoni, Matter and executive producer Greg Spottiswood spoke to The Huffington Post Canada about the new season, dysfunctional family dynamics, going to dark places, babies and sex.

HuffPost Canada: What are some of the themes you wanted to explore this season?
Greg Spottiswood: The title we gave the season in the writers’ room is “The Discomfort Zone.” We wanted to put every character in a position where they’re uncomfortable and see how they react. The season premiere is designed to put everybody in an uncomfortable situation that will take some time for them to resolve.

One of the other themes of the show this season is “order vs. chaos.” Every character is either starting in order and descending into chaos, or starting in chaos and finding order. Griffin is a character who starts with order and ends in chaos.

What has this nine-month time jump allowed the writers to do story-wise?
Enrico Colantoni: The writers can introduce a baby. We get the whole pregnancy issue out of the way. We see these people where their lives are. Sometimes it gets a little tedious going, “OK, what happens the next day?” but here we are. We can talk about what happened between then and now. As for the Brian character, it’s easier to deal with a character that isn’t around anymore and not make him look like a deadbeat dad. We justify why he had to leave and it wasn’t just right away.

How does the Season 2 premiere immediately hit full throttle?
Dillon Casey: Right off the bat, the first episode has an explosion down in the basement where all the porters work. Griffin is immediately thrown into position to be the hero. Last year, he started as a victim. This year, he’s on the other side of it. He has medical knowledge and he’s surrounded by people who are critically injured. He needs to be the doctor. People immediately see the talent that he as. The problem with Griffin is he has the knowledge to do these things, but he is not ready mentally to deal with them.

Dillon Casey on being Griffin Conner in Remedy
  22 marzo 2015   Publicado por stardust

Actor says shooting Season 2 of the Global medical drama, which returns March 23, was intense.


Dillon Casey says he brings some of himself to his role as Griffin Conner on Global TV’s Remedy, which returns March 23.

Global’s medical drama Remedy returns for Season 2, once again looking at a family of medical practitioners navigating their way through the intensely hierarchical world of the health-care system.

The show has been likened to Downton Abbey in a hospital, as doctors, nurses and medics try to survive and thrive in the complex class system of Bethune Hospital.

The series, created by Greg Spottiswood (King) looks at the Conner family: dad Allen (Flashpoint’s Enrico Colantoni) is the acting chief of staff, whose two daughters, Melissa and Sandy (Sara Canning from The Vampire Diaries and Sarah Allen from Being Human), also work at the hospital, as well as son Griffin (Dillon Casey of Nikita).

Remedy, premiering Monday at 9 p.m. on Global, is shot in Toronto as well as at Hamilton’s Juravinski Hospital, which stands in as the fictional Bethune General.

Casey’s standout role as an anguished, conflicted med school dropout earned him his first Canadian Screen Award nomination.

Before Remedy, most fans knew Casey as former Navy Seal Sean Pierce on Nikita, or as a comedic actor from his YouTube shorts about living in Los Angeles. His first major role was as hunky hockey player Trevor Lemonde in the short-lived CBC series MVP.

The Star talked to Casey about Remedy. 

In Season 1, Griffin was the family failure. Now it looks like in Season 2 he’s emerging into his own.

As we start the new season Griffin has his stuff together better than anyone else. He’s back on track. He’s going to narcotics anonymous meetings. No one is worried about the old Grif. Everyone else is trying to figure out their own stuff, but he seems OK.

From the beginning we see Griffin snapping into action. He has to step up and use medical training. So everyone sees his potential and see how talented he is. But it won’t all be roses. At one point in the season there’s a very crazy turning point. It may or may not send Griffin on a downward spiral where he is losing it. It’s a very specific moment.

There are a lot of medical shows out there. Why is this one making an impact? You’ve got nearly a million people watching you every week.

First of all, I think the writing is very honest. It doesn’t try to create all these made-for-TV moments. It’s not quite a soap opera set in a hospital. But it’s also very intense and dramatic. I think at times it could be a very real glimpse into someone’s life. It’s life packed into 40 minutes with the boring parts cut off.

ET Canada Visits The Explosive Season Two Set Of ‘Remedy’
  21 marzo 2015   Publicado por stardust


“Remedy” returns with a bang, on Monday, March 23 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Global, and only ET Canada was invited to the set of the popular medical drama.

“Season two literally starts off with a big bang,” star Dillon Casey tells us. The actor also dishes on his season two storyarch, saying “he’s very much overcompensating for his past mistakes.”

Griffin Conner is getting his life on track and moving in with girlfriend Zoe, played by Genelle Williams. The Toronto-born actress says the on-screen relationship is a breath of fresh air.

“It’s a cute little dynamic because they both sort of get each other,” she says. “They were lone wolves who found each other and now they’re together and they’re working out each other’s demons together.”

Griffin isn’t the only family member whose story includes a little drama, no longer Chief of Staff, Dr. Allen Conner, played by Enrico Colantoni is at a crossroads.

“I love seeing Allen in a situation where he’s not in control,” Colantoni says.

Something he’s not a fan of? Being drenched in cold water: “It was awful. In the five takes I was like the biggest SOB actor and I’m not, I think I’m a happy-go-lucky guy except when I’m cold and miserable, I’m like ‘This sucks, I’m not doing this, I want a wet suit.'”

#RemedyTV #LivesWillChange

As we head towards the Remedy Season 2 premiere, the excitement and drama continue to mount. New to the show and need a crash course? Or a fan of the series, but your memory is a little rusty? No problem, I’m here to help.

Here are 10 things you need to know about Remedy Season 2 (aside from the fact that it’s awesome!) and some questions to ponder:

Dr. Peter Cutler (played by Niall Matter)

1. There’s a hot new doctor about to join the staff! Dr. Peter Cutler is a little arrogant, a little over-confident and a lot sexy. Who will he get involved with this season?

2. It’s 9 months later and Sandy’s baby has been born. Sandy’s learning to be a new mom alongside her roommate and co-parent, her sister Mel.

3. Brian Decker has left the building. Despite the birth of his daughter, Brian is no longer at Beth-H. Will you miss him?

Zoe Rivera (played by Genelle Williams) and Griffin Conner (played by Dillon Casey)

4. Griffin and Zoe are going strong. They’ve been together for a year, but Zoe’s difficult past makes her reluctant to move forward.

5. Mel is still in a relationship with Jerry. Jerry is a sweet guy – could their relationship become more serious? Is that even possible while dealing with the nightly screams of Sandy’s new baby?
