As part of their continuing “You Ask, They Tell” series, CBS just interviewed Medium EP, Glenn Gordon Caron. While they didn’t ask him about a possible Medium/Ghost Whisperer crossover episode, he did tell some fun stories about how Medium came to be.
When asked where season 5 left off and where do we pick up at the beginning of season 6, Caron gives a very detailed rundown of the end of the season, which is a nice memory-refresher, but fails to really say anything about what’s going to happen in season 6. The only thing they get out of him was a joke about how he’s pretty sure she’s going to come out of her coma, now that they’ve been picked up by CBS.
So if you’re looking for spoilers, this interview definitely isn’t the place to find them. However, he did tell the story about his first meeting with Allison Dubois, and how that led to the show’s creation. For him, the real core of Allison’s story wasn’t necessarily that she saw dead people, it was that saw dead people while being married to a scientist. “What must that pillow talk be like?” was a main question that formed the show; something that is evident in the way the Dubois marriage has been written throughout the show’s run.
Caron also talks about how wanting a “Patricia Arquette-type” led to actually getting Patricia Arquette for the show, and like Jake and Patricia did in their interview, manages to get a few digs in on NBC. You can watch the entire interview below.
