Prepare for a scorching new addition to your TV lineup as Fire Country, CBS's top-rated TV series of the past year, is set to blaze onto UK screens in early 2024.
Starring and executive produced by Max Thieriot of "Seal Team" fame, Fire Country spins the captivating tale of Bode Donovan, a young convict eager to secure redemption and a reduced prison sentence. His ticket to freedom? Enrolling in a prison-release firefighting program.
Inspired by Thieriot's own experiences growing up in wildfire-prone Northern California, the series follows Bode and a team of fellow inmates who team up with elite firefighters to battle massive, unpredictable wildfires across the region.
But the heat doesn't end on the frontlines. When Bode returns to his rural Californian hometown with the firefighting unit, he ignites a personal inferno. Five years ago, he left home in ruins, carrying a deep, dark secret. Now he's back with a criminal record, seeking the audacious chance for redemption.
This 22-episode drama series also boasts a stellar cast, including Billy Burke ("Twilight"), Kevin Alejandro ("Lucifer"), Diane Farr ("Chance"), Stephanie Arcila ("Marriposa de Barrio"), Jordan Calloway ("Riverdale"), and Jules Latimer ("Rustin").
Zai Bennett, Managing Director of Content at Sky UK and Ireland, is excited about the fiery addition to their lineup, saying, "Fire Country is ablaze with action, drama, and stunning visual effects. It's a series that you'll just want to keep on bingeing. The show has been a huge hit in the US, and I can't wait to bring it to our audiences in the UK next year."
Produced by CBS Studios and backed by executive producers Tony Phelan, Joan Rater, Tia Napolitano, Max Thieriot, Jerry Bruckheimer, and KristieAnne Reed, Fire Country is set to captivate UK audiences in early 2024. The series is distributed by Paramount Global Content Distribution.
Fire Country is just one scintillating gem in Sky's 2024 programming lineup, offering a blend of British originals and the best of American television. From new series like "Mary and George" featuring Julianne Moore and Nicholas Galitzine to "The Tattooist of Auschwitz" with Jonah Hauer-King, Anna Próchniak, and Harvey Keitel, as well as U.S. hits like "True Detective: Night Country" starring Jodie Foster and Kali Reis, and "House of the Dragon Season 2" with Emma D'Arcy and Matt Smith.
