Fox 2018 Series: 9-1-1 (Trailer Song)
Fox has released a teaser trailer for its upcoming series 9-1-1, from the producers of American Horror Story and The People v. O.J. Simpson, that is set for a midseason premiere, in January, during the 2017–18 television season.
The new show, created by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, follows the lives of first responders: cops, paramedics
and firefighters, and stars a cast ensemble including Peter Krause, Kenneth Choi, Angela Bassett, Connie Britton,
Oliver Stark, Rockmond Dunbar, and others.
“It must be hard being a first responder. Would you ever consider a less stressful profession?” – Krause’s character is asked by a priest at the beginning of the trailer. “Never.” – comes his answer without hesitation.
“There’s two types of emergency. The first kind is the one we all have every day. Then, there’s a second kind of emergency. The kind that comes without warning.” – a voiceover says, while a mix of funny scenes, like a firefighting team’s intervention into a woman’s apartment who’s chocked by a snake, and dramatic ones, like the moment a woman threathing with suicide throws herself from the top of a building, are shown.
The song used in the teaser trailer is the 1965 single “Rescue Me” by Fontella Bass, from her 1966 album, “New Look”.
