CHICAGO FIRE on NBC – First Look

May 11, 2012 by  

As our favorite shows are winding down for the summer (or forever) it’s time to talk about the new shows that will be coming your way when the TV season returns to full swing. Check out these new shows from NBC. Will you be watching?

No job is more stressful, dangerous or exhilarating than those of the Firefighters, Rescue Squad and Paramedics of Chicago Firehouse 51. These are America’s everyday heroes — the courageous men and women who forge headfirst into danger when everyone else is running the other way. But the enormous responsibilities of the job also take a personal toll. Big reputations and hefty egos, coupled with the pressure to perform and make split-second decisions, are bound to put squad members at odds.

Cast of Chicago Fire on NBC

Picture 1 of 3

When a tragedy claims one of their own, there’s plenty of guilt and blame to go around. In the middle of a divorce, Lt. Matthew Casey (Jesse Spencer, “House M.D.”) tries to go about business as usual but can’t help butting heads with the brash Lt. Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney, “The Vampire Diaries”) of the Rescue Squad – and each blames the other for their fallen team member. When it’s “go-time” though, they put aside their differences and put everything on the line for each other. “Chicago Fire” is a look inside one of America’s noblest professions. Also starring are Eamonn Walker (“The Messenger”), Charlie Barnett, (“Law & Order: SVU”), David Eigenberg (“Sex and the City”), Monica Raymund (“The Good Wife”), Lauren German (“Hawaii Five-O”) and Merle Dandridge (“Sons of Anarchy”).


“Chicago Fire” is produced by Universal Television and Wolf Films. Emmy Award-winning creator/ producer Dick Wolf (“Law & Order” brand), Derek Haas (“3:10 to Yuma”), Michael Brandt (“3:10 to Yuma”), Peter Jankowski (“Law & Order” brand) and Danielle Gelber serve as executive producers. Haas and Brandt wrote the pilot, which was directed by Jeffrey Nachmanoff (“Homeland”). From renowned Emmy-winning producer Dick Wolf and the writing team behind “3:10 to Yuma” comes an edge-of-your-seat view of a dirty job that often means the difference between life and death.

    AAAAAAAAHHHHHH! Hot firefighters is like my main cliche ‘weak at the knees’ weakness. Okay, okay…not my only one–baseball players, are another one. and accountants (don’t ask).
    But in terms of police officers, bartenders, doctors, lawyers, advertising men, prince charmings…well, firefighters (and baseball players) top the list, so yes, i’ll be tuning in. I’m pretty sure I won’t be able to resist. *Presses play again*
