The “9-1-1” universe will be expanding, deep in the heart of Texas.
The new trailer gives fans a first look at stars Rob Lowe and Liv Tyler together, with Lowe playing a savvy NYPD cop who relocates to Austin, Texas, where he must learn to balance saving those who are at their most vulnerable with solving the problems in his own life.
In addition to starring in the new series, Lowe will also serve as executive producer.
“The beauty of having a hit drama like ‘9-1-1’ from the genius minds of Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Tim Minear is it allows you to explore thrilling stories as told through an array of distinctive characters,” said Michael Thorn, Fox’s president of entertainment. “In ‘9-1-1: Lone Star’, they’ve given us a special opportunity to expand the franchise into new territory — literally and figuratively — and we’re thrilled to have the incomparable Rob Lowe headline this new iteration when it joins our schedule next season.”
Added Lowe: “Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Tim Minear’s ability to make smart, unique, great television is unmatched. I’m elated to join this team.”
