Rob Lowe took over EW's Instagram story to tour the Code Black set

Posted on


Paging Rob Lowe; you’re needed in the EW Instagram feed.

On Wednesday the Code Black actor took over our Instagram story to give a behind-the-scenes tour of the CBS medical drama, which returns for its second season tonight.

Lowe, a newcomer to the cast this season, plays Dr. Ethan Willis, a hotshot military doctor brought into Angels Memorial Hospital to teach the staff cutting-edge trauma techniques.

During his takeover, Lowe showed off the expansive set, knocked out a few scenes, posed with costars including Boris Kodjoe, and got in an afternoon workout — all while wearing his bloodstained costume.

Check out some highlights from Lowe’s story takeover below, and see the full version by following EW on Instagram. Season 2 of Code Black kicks off tonight at 10 p.m. on CBS.
