TORONTO, Oct. 2, 2012 /CNW/ - Global is cranking up the heat with an online preview of its new firefighter
drama, Chicago Fire. Boasting a hot, new ensemble cast and high calibre creative team led
by Dick Wolf, the much anticipated series gives an edge-of-your-seat
view into the lives of everyday heroes. Fans can now watch the first
episode at GlobalTV.com/chicagofire and on the iOS Global Video app before its world premiere on Wednesday, October 10 - 10pm ET/PT on Global.
"Chicago Fire is an explosive and emotionally charged series, which will capture the
hearts of viewers everywhere," said Barb Williams, SVP, Content, Shaw Media. "The sizzling cast already has people abuzz about the premiere, and an
advance preview is a surefire way to feed the building curiosity and
further generate excitement for the television debut on Global."
The action-driven drama starring Jesse Spencer (House), Taylor Kinney (Vampire Diaries) and David Eigenberg (Sex and the City) follows the everyday heroes of Chicago Firehouse 51. With big
reputations and hefty egos at play, coupled with the pressure to
perform, there's plenty of guilt and blame to go around when a tragedy
claims the life of one of their own. Coping with loss, a grueling
schedule and tight quarters, the team's personal relationships are put
to the test. While some flames burn out and others sizzle, there will
be no shortage of steam inside the firehouse walls. But the complex men
and women of the Chicago Fire Department understand one thing - when
it's "go-time," they put aside their differences and put everything on
the line to save those in distress.
Created by Derek Haas and Michael Brandt (3:10 to Yuma), the series is executive produced by Emmy®-winning Dick Wolf (Law & Order).
