EXCLUSIVE: Encouraging news for midseason NBC series The Night Shift – the network has ordered three additional scripts of the medical drama. Night Shift, about the men and women who work the wee hours at San Antonio Memorial, has an 8-episode order (pilot +7) as part of that complex four-show deal between NBC and Sony TV last May that included pickups of The Blacklist (with guaranteed Monday 10 PM slot), Welcome To The Family and The Night Shift and a renewal of Community. The Night Shift pilot tested very well, with Irish actor Eoin Macken, who plays the lead, touted as a potential breakout star. Creators Gabe Sachs and Jeff Judah executive produce with Pierre Morel.
