ABC’s Dr. Odyssey Starts Filming in Los Angeles in June

The filming of ABC’s upcoming series ‘Dr. Odyssey’ is scheduled to commence in Los Angeles, California, on June 17 and will last until January 29, 2025. Joshua Jackson will lead the show’s cast, which was conceived by Ryan Murphy. The project’s plot is currently under wraps but will be a medical procedural set on a cruise ship. The series is written by Murphy, Jon Robin Baitz, and Joe Baken. Paris Barclay is on board as a director.

Murphy created Netflix’s ‘Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story,’ a biographical crime drama series that focuses on the titular serial killer. He also co-created ABC’s ‘9-1-1,’ which explores the high-pressure experiences of first responders who face frightening and heart-stopping emergencies. Additionally, he co-created ‘American Horror Story,’ an anthology series showcasing different horror aspects. Murphy’s ‘9-1-1: Lone Star’ follows a New York firefighter’s relocation to Austin, Texas, where he balances saving lives with personal challenges. His other credits include ‘The Watcher,’ ‘Pose,’ and ‘Halston.’

Baitz previously contributed to projects such as ‘Feud,’ ‘Stonewall,’ and ‘The Slap.’ Baken has collaborated with Murphy on ‘American Horror Story,’ writing several episodes. He also wrote the screenplay of the comedy film ‘Mailman.’

Barclay helmed eighteen episodes of ‘Station 19’ and directed the documentary ‘Billy Preston: That’s the Way God Planned It,’ which dives into the life of the legendary musician and keyboardist Billy Preston. He previously worked with Murphy by helming episodes of ‘American Horror Story,’ ‘The Watcher,’ and ‘Monster.’

Jackson recently portrayed Dan Gallagher in the miniseries ‘Fatal Attraction,’ a contemporary reimagining of the iconic 1980s thriller that delves into the timeless themes of marriage and infidelity through the modern lens of strong women, personality disorders, and coercive control. In ‘Dr. Death,’ he played Dr. Christopher Duntsch. Additionally, the actor starred as Bill Richardson in the Hulu miniseries ‘Little Fires Everywhere,’ which explores the intertwined fates of the Richardson family and a mysterious mother-daughter duo.

The series is expected to premiere during the 2024-2025 broadcast season. Los Angeles is a significant filming location of several Ryan Murphy shows, including ‘9-1-1,’ ‘American Horror Story,’ and ‘9-1-1: Lone Star.’
