Pilot and Premiere

The series pilot was co-written by the creators and filmed in the city of Chicago. The series will continue to be filmed there and the premiere episode featured the actual Mayor of Chicago, Rahm Emanuel.

Christopher Herrmann, as a veteran fireman of Truck 81 is held in high esteem by the other men. As an earthy family man, he has seen his share of misfortunes. He and his family reside with his in-laws due to financial hardship induced by a number of get-rich-quick schemes.

Matthew Casey is a strong lieutenant who relies upon intuition as he grapples with the loss of one fireman, as well as his relationship problems.
