Sadly, the only thing I have going for me against this 'wish list' is I'm British, but sadlythe wrong gender, age etc.etc.
Does anyone know for sure if they've started filming yet?? Was wondering, since they've put the USA launch date back to October, if they maybe moved the shooting date back too?

Sounds like a unique plot, something CI has never done before.

What's with these possibly recurring roles? And what happened to filming the French CI premier episode in NYC with Goren & Eames?

Sounds like a good plot-the recurring roles are fine with me-this is what I thought Dick Wolf should have done rather than make split teams-he should have developed a good supporting cast for Goren and Eames in a very similar situation like SVU-

Mmm - a couple of big guys to be cast. Wonder how they'll measure up to OUR big guy?

They've started filming on their stage and on location, etc. SVU filmed earlier in the month, then wrapped, and CI began. Since they're only starting a week later than everyone else, they probably only started filming a week later, too.
