Sky has snapped up UK and Ireland rights to Twentieth Century Fox’s emergency services drama, 9-1-1, in a multi-season commitment.
The show, which explores the high-pressure experiences of police, paramedics and firefighters who are thrust into the most frightening, shocking and heart-stopping situations, will debut on Sky Living later this year and will also be available on streaming service NOW TV.
Adam MacDonald, director of Sky Living, said: “I’m delighted to bring the heart-stoppingly dramatic 9-1-1 to Sky Living where it will thrill viewers alongside fellow best-loved US dramas. Its nail-biting blend of breathtaking danger and raw emotion will have UK viewers – including me! – completely hooked.”
9-1-1 is created by Ryan Murphy (American Horror Story franchise, Nip/Tuck), Brad Falchuk (American Horror Story franchise, Nip/Tuck) and Tim Minear (Feud, American Horror Story franchise) and stars Angela Bassett (American Horror Story, What’s Love Got to Do with It), Peter Krause (The Catch, Six Feet Under) and Connie Britton (Nashville, Friday Night Lights).
Oliver Stark (Into the Badlands), Aisha Hinds (Shots Fired, Underground), Kenneth Choi (The People v. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story) and Rockmond Dunbar (Prison Break, The Path) also star.
