Terry Wrong — EP of “Boston Med” — explains to The Wrap just how long it took to get the ABC News series to air: “Three months to negotiate, four months to shoot the footage, and 10 to 11 months to edit the 2,500 hours down to eight one-hour episodes.” Even considering the time commitment, he says production costs were relatively low. “This is an inexpensive an hour as you are likely to find on any broadcast network,” Wrong says. “It’s cheaper to produce than a scripted drama by multiples. And it’s cheaper to produce than a big-time reality show by multiples. We’ve been very cost-efficient for the network and still able to provide a different, dynamic type of programming.”
