NBC’s newest series “Chicago Fire” is ready to take off on Wednesday October 10th starting at 10pm. The show will feature a story line that highlights how firefighters and paramedics risk their lives on a daily basis to ensure the safety of the general population. Just like how most post 9/11 firehouse dramas (Rescue Me, Ladder 49) have touched the hearts of many, this series will likely depict a similar profound story that real life Chicago firefighters are accustomed to.
Emmy award winning executive producer Dick Wolf (Law & Order), and creators Derek Haas and Michael Brandt (3:10 to Yuma) have collaborated to deliver this intense series to the NBC fall lineup. In knowing these names are behind production there should be a fairly high audience rating for this drama.
“Chicago Fire” runs deep within each character’s mental and physical weight that they must bear while making a living saving lives. Tempers will flare and firehouse 51 will be on uneven ground, but they all know that they must work together to safeguard not only themselves but the lives of the victims in crisis. A major dilemma for each firefighter and paramedic is being able to keep the personal conflicts in the firehouse on the back burner. As a firefighter they all need to be prepared to be a no name hero who hold others lives more important than their own. And the only people who will always recognize their merit are the people around them at the station and at home.
Starring in this new series are Jesse Spencer as Matthew Casey, Taylor Kinney as Kelly Severide, Charlie Barnett as Peter Mills, Monica Raymund as Gabriela Dawson, Lauren German as Leslie Shay, Eamonn Walker as Cheif Wallace Boden, David Eigenberg as Christopher Herrmann, and Terri Reeves as Hallie.
