Six Feet Under and The Catch star Peter Krause has been cast in a lead role in FOX’s new drama, 9-1-1, from creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk (the American Horror Story franchise, Nip/Tuck).
The news came today as part of the Network’s Television Critics Association (TCA) Summer Press Tour announcements.
Krause joins previously announced Academy and Emmy Award nominee Angela Bassett (American Horror Story, What’s Love Got to Do with It), in a new series that will begin with the fateful question, “9-1-1, what’s your emergency?”
According to FOX, the procedural drama explores the high-pressure experiences of police, paramedics and firefighters who are thrust into the most frightening, shocking and heart-stopping situations. These emergency responders must try to balance saving those who are at their most vulnerable with solving the problems in their own lives.
Additionally, Emmy Award nominee Tim Minear (Feud, American Horror Story) has joined the series as executive producer and showrunner, and McG (Lethal Weapon, We Are Marshall) will direct the series premiere.
The series will premiere in 2018.
