Tee, who will also star in next year’s “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2” as the villain Shredder, will play a Chicago-born resident at the hospital. His character found his calling in medicine, after serving as an army medic.
“Med” marks Tee’s return to the network, after filming The Peacock’s passed-on drama pilot “Love Is A Four-Letter Word” this past cycle.
“Chicago Med” is the third project in Dick Wolf’s “Chicago” franchise, following the flagship “Chicago Fire” and “P.D.” The series follows the day-to-day chaos of a team of doctors in the Windy City, and stars Oliver Platt, S. Epatha Merkerson, Laurie Holden, Nick Gehlfuss and Yaya Dacosta. “Med” is expected to see familiar faces from the other two series, as fit with storylines when the police and fire departments intertwine with the medical staff.
Tee is repped by Abrams Artists Agency, manager Lisa DiSante-Frank and attorney Mark Johnson of Behr & Abramson.
“Chicago Med” debuts Nov. 10.
