9-1-1 premieres


A procedural drama television series which follows the lives of Los Angeles first responders: cops, paramedics, firefighters and dispatchers.
It centers on Sergeant Athena, a veteran police officer, Bobby Nash, a recovering addict fire captain, and Abby, a 911 operator. All three work in tandem to save lives when emergencies strike.
The emergencies presented are intense and, in at least some cases, inspired by actual events. The series follows a fairly straightforward procedural formula, tracking these first responders as they tend to various life-and-death situations. The emergency calls are appropriately tense, but also hampered by preposterous twists
Wednesdays on Fox.
