On tonight’s episode of Royal Pains, there will still be plenty of seascapes, but instead of the usual Hamptons setting, Hank Med find themselves in Cuba after Boris’ health takes a turn for the worse.
This two-part episode was actually filmed in Puerto Rico which filled in for Cuba but the show’s star, Mark Feuerstein says the exotic locale was instrumental in keeping the summer-set show on schedule after USA ordered 18 episodes for Season 2.
“To have good weather consistently in New York for six months is a great challenge, so we had to start shooting when there were no leaves on the trees in New York,” he explained. “We literally jumped into our second season by shooting episodes 4 and 5 first, and in Puerto Rico. It was chaotic to say the least, for the writers and the actors to dive in headlong into the middle and in another city.”
