FOX’s #1 drama, 9-1-1, expanded its reach to the city of Austin, TX, with the two-night series premier of 9-1-1: LONE STAR on January 19, 2020. The show stars include: Emmy Award nominee Rob Lowe (Owen Strand), Liv Tyler (Michelle Blake), Ronen Rubinstein (T.K. Strand), Sierra McClain (Grace Ryder), Jim Parrack (Judd Ryder), Natacha Karam (Marjan Marwani), Brian Michael Smith (Paul Strickland), Julian Works (Mateo Chavez) and Rafael Silva (Carlos Reyes).
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 firehouse in Austin experiences a tragedy of its own, 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.
