SHARE ‘ER’ returns to shooting its 15th season

A 15th season of ER is within reach, sources said.

The NBC medical drama has been casting two recurring characters. The Sopranos alumna Aida Turturro has been tapped for one of the roles, a car accident victim; Australian David Lyons is in talks for the other part, a handsome new doctor who lacks conscience, sources said.

In another sign that ER is coming back, talent agents have been told that the show plans to go directly into shooting four episodes for next season after wrapping its six-episode post-strike order.

NBC and series producer Warner Bros. TV, which have been negotiating an ER renewal for the past few months, declined comment.
