Fox’s ‘The Resident’ donates medical supplies to Grady Memorial

Fox medical drama “The Resident,” which shoots in metro Atlanta, has donated its masks, gloves and gowns to Grady Memorial Hospital to help address a shortage in critical medical supplies during the current pandemic. 

Dr. Karen Law, a rheumatologist at Grady who is also affiliated with Emory, thanked the production for the donation on Instagram.

“We needed this kind of good news today,” Law wrote. “ @theresidentonfox are good citizens doing good deeds and not looking for a shout out. Though I encourage all to support The Resident and the great team behind the show and to pay their good deed forward any way you can.”

The show, which was set to air 23 episodes in its third season, finished 20 episodes before production was abruptly suspended last week. It appears unlikely the final three episodes will be produced given the worsening situation with the coronavirus.

The 18th episode of “The Resident” aired on Tuesday, March 17 so two more original episodes are left. Counting a week of DVR usage, the show averages a respectable 6.5 to 7 million viewers a week. 

The show’s soundstages are in Conyers in Rockdale County while some exterior and interior shots are done at the High Museum, which doubles as the fictional Chastain Park Memorial Hospital. 

Notable stars include Matt Czuchry, Emily VanCamp, Morris Chestnut, Malcolm Jamal-Warner and Jane Leeves

According to EW, ABC’s “The Good Doctor” donated supplies n Vancouver and “Station 19” gave away some of its N95 masks to the City of Ontario Fire Dept.
