Sirens premiered on the USA network on Thursday. The drama was co-created by Dennis Leary.
The show is a series about three EMTS in Chicago and is based on a British series.
The Hollywood Reporter notes that Leary told reporters at the Television Critics Association press tour, "I was a big fan of [executive producer] Bob[Fisher]'s and I wanted to co-write the thing so I wouldn't be responsible for f---ing up the British series. I don't think there's enough guys dressed up as EMTs in the lobby."
Sirens can be seen regularly on Thursday evenings on USA. The show features Michael Mosley as Johnny and Kevin Daniels as Hank.
According to USA Today critic Robert Bianco, Leary and Fisher have given the USA Network a “lighter, far less edgy version of Leary's FX firefighter series.”
Leary was the star and co-creator of the show, Rescue Me, which aired on FX from 2004 to 2011. Leary was nominated for several Golden Globes for his work on Rescue Me. He was also seen in The Amazing Spider-Man.
Leary founded the Leary Firefighters Foundation after six firefighters from his hometown in Worcester, Mass. died.
