Brian Tee may not have been gone from the “Chicago Med” set for too long, but it must still be a pretty big shake-up to leave anything after being there for eight years. Naturally, Tee’s favorite part of becoming a director was simply being able to spend time with his friends again. As he told NBC Insider, “I think you create a family environment being on the show for so long, and you know, I think it was great to come home if that makes sense. It was really nice to see the cast and crew, all the wonderful faces that you’ve lived with and grew up with for the last eight seasons.”
However, with the excitement of being able to be with his friends again, Tee admitted there was some trepidation, too. He took on a different role on the “Chicago Med” set this time around, and he didn’t want to disappoint anyone, stating, “I just wanted to make sure that I was going to deliver them what obviously they needed, but also try to elevate certain things. And so for myself, it was just a ton of preparation. Just to make sure that I was ready to fill these particular shoes.”
Directing an episode of “Chicago Med” has been a dream for Tee for quite a while now, and it’s great to see him fulfill it. New episodes of “Chicago Med” air Wednesdays on NBC and arrive the next day on Peacock.
