Will Viewers See Connie Britton Get in on the ‘9-1-1’ Action? (VIDEO)


It’s tough saving lives for a living but audiences love watching—as is evident by the latest Fox drama hit, 9-1-1.

The show, from the same producers that brought us American Crime Story: The People vs. O.J Simpson, premiered just last month and before its third episode could air, it was renewed for a second season.

The rescue drama, which focuses on the efforts of police, fire fighters, paramedics, and the 9-1-1 emergency center as they attempt to keep people safe and get them out of life-threatening jams. Plus, it features A-list talent like Angela Bassett, Peter Krause and Connie Britton.

Bassett, Krause, Britton, along with cast mates Oliver Stark, Rockmond Dunbar and Aisha Hinds, stopped by the TV Guide Magazine suite at the recent Television Critics Association to talk about the new show, the physical challenges, and whether Britton—whose character is the aforementioned 9-1-1 operator—would like to get in on some of the action of the show.

9-1-1, Wednesdays, 9/8c, Fox.
