One Chicago Day 2016: Laughing with Miranda Rae Mayo, Yuri Sardarov, and David Eigenberg, CHICAGO FIRE

One of the many joys of talking to the cast from the ONE CHICAGO series (in this case CHICAGO FIRE) is the genuine love they all seem to have for each other – the love they have for the show, their characters, their city. It’s always fun to be a part of that. When we were in Chicago, our first interview of the day was with Miranda Rae Mayo (Stella), Yuri Sardarov (Otis), and David Eigenberg (Herrmann). The three of

One Chicago Day 2016: CHICAGO MED’s Yaya DaCosta and Marlyne Barrett talk Season 2

At this year’s One Chicago Day extravaganza in October, we had the chance to speak with CHICAGO MED’s Yaya DaCosta (April) and Marlyne Barrett (Maggie) about what’s coming down the pike for their characters. April is dealing with her TB, her relationship with Tate, her brother, you name it, and Yaya previews what the season will hold, while Marlyne talked about deepening the personal lives of these characters as we’ve entered the stability of Season 2. Check out their back

One Chicago Day 2016: Previewing CHICAGO PD with Jesse Lee Soffer

As a part of the One Chicago Day celebration held on location in Chicago last month, we had the chance to sit down with Jesse Lee Soffer, CHICAGO PD’s Jay Halstead, to talk about what’s coming up on the show, hear a little bit more about what might happen as a result of cohabitation with Erin, and how Antonio’s departure impacts the team.  Added bonus: I might get story royalties for a suggestion I offer! Tonight’s all new episode (NBC,

One Chicago Day 2016: Insight on CHICAGO MED from Colin Donnell and Brian Tee

Today’s One Chicago Day video celebrates last season’s addition to the CHICAGO universe, CHICAGO MED, as we discussed stitches, parrots, PTSD, jam sessions, and the day to day lives of physicians with Drs. Rhodes and Choi (Colin Donnell and Brian Tee). These guys have a lot of fun bouncing off of each other in the video above, and here are some of the highlights of our in depth chat (Brian in green; Colin in blue): On what they enjoy about

One Chicago Day 2016: An intense Jason Beghe on CHICAGO PD

Jason Beghe joined us for a Q&A session as a part of NBC’s celebration for OneChicagoDay2016 and spent some time talking all things Voight.  Does he have someone to lean on now that Jason is gone?  How does he reconcile the fact that Voight is a murderer, telling others not to cross the line like him?  Is he as intense as Voight?  A really great chat with him, the full video for which I’ve included above!  Here are some highlights

One Chicago Day 2016: Eamonn Walker talks CHICAGO FIRE

Last week, a group of writers converged on Lagunitas Brewery and the Chicago studios of CHICAGO FIRE, MED, PD, and new series JUSTICE, to celebrate One Chicago Day 2016. We got the chance to speak with the cast and crew from the shows, witness on set demonstrations like cracking open a chest with Colin Donnell, saving people who are on fire with Yuri Sardarov and Miranda Rae Mayo, and flipping a car with LaRoyce Hawkins.  Not to mention, we got

HAWAII FIVE-0 Takes a Bow as Season Seven Begins

As Queen’s Surf Beach drank in the beauty of another sunset over Waikiki, cast and crew gathered with fans for Hawaii Five-0’s Season Seven red-carpet premiere.  And what a memorable event it was – and a starlit night so clear the white canopy that has enveloped so many Five-0 premieres was nowhere in sight. First to arrive at mytake’s spot on the carpet was Teilor Grubbs (Grace). MyTakeonTV (MTOTV):  I understand you’re really into sports.  Tell me about your favorites.

From the Set: The cast of CHICAGO MED give us a look at what to expect!

Last week, to celebrate the premiere of CHICAGO MED, the third in the Chicago trilogy created and engineered by Dick Wolf, I spent some time in Chicago talking to as many members of the cast as I was able to! To introduce you to the characters, here is a bit of a cast breakdown (h/t Marissa for putting this together), and if we had the chance to speak with them, I’ve included a video (all videos can be found on

HAWAII FIVE-0: Sunset Brings Dawn of Season Four

Clearly, the Jonas Brothers were a big, LOUD draw at Hawaii Five-0’s Season Four Sunset on the Beach red carpet premiere. A Reason to Cheer Whenever the “Jonas” name was mentioned for anything, be it getting in a car to attend the event or stepping onto the red carpet, their every move was accompanied by a tumultuous 8,000 screams that exploded as one very loud voice. Jonas Brothers aside, this annual event for Hawaii Five-0 was cause to celebrate. With

From the Set: PSYCH’s Executive Producers talk getting to 100 Episodes (Part 2)

In the middle of 2012, a group of us descended on the Vancouver set of PSYCH to watch them film their 100th episode (which airs Wednesday night at 10/9c on USA), and to talk to the cast and creative team about what’s coming up in Season 7.  We sat down with the Executive Producer/Creator Steve Franks, and his co-EPs Chris Henze and Kelly Kulchak (easily the nicest people in the business among a group of some of the nicest people
