The “Rescue Me” star lands a new project — about rescuing people
Denis Leary isn't done rescuing people yet.
USA Network announced Monday that the "Rescue Me" actor will write and develop a half-hour adaptation of the British series "Sirens," a dark comedy about paramedics.
"Sirens" was a six-part Channel 4 series inspired by British paramedic Tom Reynolds' 2006 book "Blood Sweat & Tea: Real-Life Adventures in an Inner-City Ambulance" and will sound familiar to fans of "Rescue Me."
"Swept along by an endless tide of bodily fluids rarely their own," writes USA Network in an official release, "the 'Sirens' trio bicker, fight and shag their way through the darkly funny maelstrom of their lives. Behind the uniforms, the sirens, and the incredibly fast driving, they are three ordinary blokes trying to make it through yet another shift. But once they've finished saving other people's lives, they need to salvage their own."
The seventh and final season of Leary's critically acclaimed FX series "Rescue Me" begins July 13.
