Need 200 cc’s of “Chicago Med” info, stat?

Read on for what I blogged live from the upcoming series’ panel at the TV critics summer press tour Thursday in Beverly Hills, Calif. The “Chicago Fire” spinoff premieres Nov. 17 on NBC.

The panel included cast members Yaya DaCosta, Colin Donnell, Nick Gehlfuss, S. Epatha Merkerson, Oliver Platt and Brian Tee. Notice “The Walking Dead” alum Laurie Holden’s name is missing from the list. She bowed out of the show for personal reasons. Bummer, I know. On the production side of things, “Chicago Med” showrunner Andrew Dettmann (“CSI”), Matt Olmstead (“Chicago Fire,” “Chicago P.D.”) and Dick Wolf were here.

I’m also interviewing a few cast members, as well as Olmstead and Dettmann, throughout the day. I asked you guys on Twitter to submit questions and, well, you more than obliged. Even “Chicago Fire” star Jesse Spencer (Lt. Matt Casey) came out of social media hibernation to submit one. (Nice troll work, Jesse.)

I’ll try to get answers to as many of your questions as possible and post them in separate stories in the coming days. UPDATE: The “Chicago Fire” Q&A is up. Read it here.
