“9-1-1…what’s your emergency?”
On Wednesday, I had the opportunity to attend the advanced screening of FOX’s forthcoming Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk drama, “9-1-1,” and I absolutely loved it!
From the opening scene…until the credits roll, the series premiere takes you on an emotional roller coaster as it dives into the high pressure and stressful experiences of a 9-1-1 operator, firefighters, paramedics and police officers as they face some of the most shocking and frightening situations with one goal: save lives.
I was literally on the edge of my seat while watching and at one point, I reached for my inhaler. Bruh, I don’t have asthma!
“9-1-1” couldn’t have offered a better cast.
Connie Britton, Angela Bassett and Peter Krause are the stars of the series and their performances are nothing short of stellar.
While each of their characters are as brave and strong as their jobs require them to be, they all have a cross to bear in their personal lives, which is killing them softly.
Oliver Stark, Aisha Hinds, Kenneth Choi and Rockmond Dunbar round out the incredibly talented and diverse cast.
What I loved most about the episode is how it shows the importance of teamwork between the 9-1-1 operator, the fire department, the paramedics and the police department in order to save lives.
“9-1-1” is set to premiere on Wednesday, January 3 at 9/8c on FOX.
You definitely don’t want to miss it!
