US VERSION OF DAYBREAK'S SIRENS TO GET SECOND SERIES
USA NETWORK has commissioned a 13-episode second season of Daybreak Pictures' comedy drama series, Sirens, it has been announced.
Sirens stars Michael Mosley, Kevin Daniels, Kevin Bigley, Jessica McNamee and Josh Segarra and is set in Chicago centering around three of the city's best Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs).
Denis Leary will continue to executive produce for Apostle with Jim Serpico and Bob Fisher, whilst the executive producers for Daybreak Pictures are David Aukin, Hal Vogel and David Leach.
USA Network prexy Chris McCumber said, "Sirens resonated with a broad fan base, and we are excited to grow this new audience further, as season two promises a lot more laughs and irreverent humor. We're pleased to continue our partnership with Denis Leary and Bob Fisher, whose unique brand of witty, off-kilter and laugh-out-loud writing is brought to life by the immensely talented cast."
Hal Vogel added, "We're thrilled that our first format picked up in the US is getting a second season, it's been fantastic working with USA Networks, Fox TV Studios and Apostle and we're looking forward to the partnership continuing."
The UK version, which originally aired on Channel 4 in June 2011 as a six-part series, was created by Brian Fillis (The Curse of Steptoe, An Englishman in New York) and inspired by paramedic Tom Reynolds' book Blood, Sweat and Tea. It followed three young paramedics who explore sex, love, life and friendship from the jaded point of view of people who see too much of the worst (and some of the best) of humanity.
