Royal Pains Gets a Taste of the Exotic with "Cuban" Excursion

Thanks to Royal Pains' beautiful beachside setting in the Hamptons, every episode feels like vacation and every location looks like paradise.

On Thursday's episode, airing at 10/9c on USA, the cast and crew take their love for the sun one step further and way down south when Hank (Mark Feuerstein) and Evan (Paulo Costanzo) travel to Cuba after Boris' health takes a turn for the worse.

This two-episode diversion out of the country, with Puerto Rico subbing for Cuba, may seem like an easy excuse for a paid vacation. However, Feuerstein says the exotic locale was instrumental in keeping the summer-set show on schedule after USA ordered 18 episodes for Season 2.

"To have good weather consistently in New York for six months is a great challenge, so we had to start shooting when there were no leaves on the trees in New York," he tells "We literally jumped into our second season by shooting episodes 4 and 5 first, and in Puerto Rico. It was chaotic to say the least, for the writers and the actors to dive in headlong into the middle and in another city."
