Rob Lowe and Liv Tyler star in the upcoming spinoff series 9-1-1: Lone Star, a spinoff to Fox’s first responders drama series 9-1-1.
We look at different group of responders, naturally, in this spinoff. Lowe plays a firefighter who was the only survivor of a Manhattan firehouse that responded to the World Trade Centre attack. He and his firefighter son (Ronen Rubinstein) move to Texas to help another firehouse start again after they experience a similar tragedy. He’s all confidence on the surface, but he’s got a big secret that’s taking a toll underneath. Of course, no one else is doing too well either. The cast includes Tyler as a chief paramedic who’s haunted by her missing sister.
9-1-1: Lone Star, also starring Sierra McClain, Jim Parrack, Natacha Karam, Brian Michael Smith, newcomer Rafael Silva and Julian Works, will premiere with a two-night event start on January 19 on Fox.
