News / S.W.A.T. / Television ♦ November 19, 2017

Congratulations to the cast and crew for receiving a full-season order, bringing up the total episodes of the first season to 20!

DEADLINE – CBS has made back order decisions on two of its three remaining new fall series, giving a full-season pickup to drama S.W.A.T. after three airings and ordering three more episodes of Mark Feuerstein’s multi-camera comedy series 9JKL.

S.W.A.T. has received an order for seven more episodes, bringing its total to 20 episodes. While that is two short of a traditional full season (22 episodes), it is considered full season as S.W.A.T. launched more than a month after the start of the season.

The Shemar Moore-starrer hasn’t been a breakout but has held up pretty well, dipping from 1.1 to 0.9 and from 6.7 million to 6.4 million viewers (Live+Same Day) between weeks 1-3. In Live+7, the action drama is averaging 10.36 million viewers, 1.9 in adults 18-49. Its November 2 premiere delivered CBS’ best performance in the Thursday 10 PM time period with entertainment programming in almost two years, since January 6, 2016 in viewers (10.52 million in L+7) and since March 3, 2016 in 18-49 (1.9).

Brampton's Own / Interview / S.W.A.T. ♦ October 21, 2017

Check out this interview of Best Life with Alex, wherein he discusses telekinesis, his upcoming show, S.W.A.T., how he got into acting, and surviving the Australian outback. Loving all these interviews/articles that feature Alex!

Your IMDB page has this absurd bit of trivia: “He has starred in two film about bullied teenagers with abusive parents who gain telekinetic powers and go on rampages:Chronicle (2012) and Carrie (2013).” Did you worry about being typecast as someone who stars in film about bullied teenagers with abusive parents who gain telekinetic powers and go on rampages?

I can’t tell you how many telekinesis movies I’ve had to turn down. [Laughs] No, I’m not worried about that at all. But I certainly was aware of the irony that the very next film I did after Chronicle was Carrie. It was odd and interesting dealing with that subject matter again. The second time around, I was jealous because I didn’t get to have the powers. Chloë Grace Moretz hogged all the powers. But I’d love to be involved in all projects like that. Anything that that’s fantastical and outside of the box but succeeds in maintaining a groundedness. Who wouldn’t want to be involved in something like that?

You’re a busy guy these days.

We just finished shooting [SWAT]. Also, I’ve been in post-production on a short film with my brother who is in Australia. It’s been a bit crazy.

That’s a tough time difference.

That’s a huge part of it. He’s 17 or 18 hours ahead. It’ll be 7 p.m. for me and 1 p.m. for him. It’s definitely been interesting. We co-directed the film. That makes it more difficult because we both have to sign off on everything. Next time, he might produce and I might direct, or vice versa. We’ve sworn to never co-direct if we can’t be in the same place at the same time.

What’s the short about?

It’s called Come Correct, which is a colloquialism that basically means show up prepared and respectful. It’s about a simple, young guy who goes into a fancy, self-indulgent cocktail lounge and orders Bundaberg Rum. It’s a low-brow drink in a high-brow establishment. The bartender kicks him out, but then the main character challenges him to a cocktail shake-off. The whole thing is this ridiculous, silly comedy about these guys battling it out in the world of mixology.

What were you shooting today for SWAT?

We were shooting in the studio. We do a lot of on-location stuff in the show, which is fun to do and helps with the authenticity level, but anything at SWAT headquarters is on the sound stage. There wasn’t too much action today, but the days are always packed. The show is so ambitious.

How is the pace of a show like SWAT different than a studio movie?

I’ve done studio movies where Roger Deckker is taking eight years go line up a shot. Then you see it and it’s like the Sistine Chapel on screen. And I’ve done the fastest, grittiest indie. We did one this year called Brampton’s Own that we shot in eight days. That’s just crazy. With SWAT, the money is there to get a certain level of production value, but it’s still crunch time every day. There’s no relaxing. It’s tight.

You have a stuntman to do most of the work but what’s the most ambitious thing that you’ve done?

The other day, we were shooting an episode where my character is driving up to a situation where we know there are some bad guys. We’re cruising up in the Dodge Charger. I’m driving. The scene plays out that the bad guys take off, I whip the car, skidding, sliding, drifting, careening around this corner. I watched it happen with the stunt drivers. They are drifting and doing all this crazy stuff with the cameras outside the car. Then they got me to get in the car. They put three cameras on the car and put Shemar Moore, the star of the show, in the passenger seat. They told me not to drift, just to go up and do a U-turn. But when I did it, I lost some traction. It was awesome. I thought to myself, “I”m driving this Dodge Charger with over $1 million in camera equipment on it and the star of the show next to me. Luckily, we have our seat belts on.”
