FOX’s #1 drama, 9-1-1, expands its reach to the city of Austin, TX, with its first-ever new installment, 9-1-1: LONE STAR, which debuts with a special two-night event beginning Sunday, Jan. 19 (10:00-11:10 PM ET/7:00-8:10 PM PT live to all time zones), following the NFC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME, and continuing with its time period premiere on Monday, Jan. 20 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT).
Nearly 20 years ago, OWEN STRAND (Emmy Award nominee Rob Lowe, “Parks and Recreation,” “The West Wing”) was the lone survivor of his Manhattan firehouse on 9/11. In the wake of the attack, Owen had the unenviable task of rebuilding his station. After a similar tragedy happens to a firehouse in Austin, Owen, along with his troubled firefighter son, T.K. (Ronen Rubinstein, “Dead of Summer”), takes his progressive philosophies of life and firefighting down to Texas, where he helps them start anew. On the surface, Owen is all about big-city style and swagger, but underneath he struggles with a secret he hides from the world – one that could very well end his life. The series also stars Liv Tyler (“The Leftovers”), Sierra McClain (“Mindhunter”), Jim Parrack (“The Deuce,” “True Blood”), Natacha Karam (“The Brave”), Brian Michael Smith (“Queen Sugar”), newcomer Rafael Silva and Julian Works (“American Crime”).
