The Show

Behind the Scenes

  • This episode has a running time of 58 minutes and ran nearly commercial free thanks to a sponsorship deal with the Warner Bros. motion picture The Departed. [1]
  • This episode was available for free on Google Video from September 13, 2006 through September 17, 2006. [2]
  • The fictional Tanner Museum was originally supposed to be located in Chicago due to Wells' production company's experience shooting there for ER, but the Art Institute was resistant to shooting and the logistics didn't work as well, so they moved the location to Pittsburgh. The Mellon Institute was used for the exterior of the museum and a gallery at the Carnegie Museum was used for some interiors. [3]
