The Good Doctor and How It Got It’s Start
Great article in the New York Times about the new ABC Television hit show The Good Doctor. I had the chance to visit a day of their filming in Vancouver BC, and enjoyed watching the star Freddie Highmore transform into his character for the show. They were using the front and entrance of the Vancouver Community College building for the hospital entrance as shown on the show. You can read/see photos from my visit here.

How ABC Found a Surprise Hit in ‘The Good Doctor’
Daniel Dae Kim was wide awake and scrolling through Twitter at 4 a.m. when he realized “The Good Doctor” was going to be a hit.
It was a Tuesday in September, and Mr. Kim, a 49-year-old actor known for his work on “Hawaii Five-0” and “Lost,” found himself in bed in western Bulgaria not far from the set of “Hellboy,” a movie he was filming for release next year.
He had a special interest in “The Good Doctor,” because it represented his first outing in a new role: executive producer. And so, although he had to go to work in just a few hours, he could not keep himself from checking the effusive social-media reaction to the show’s premiere episode on ABC.
