All About the Unscripted 911 Series!
Luke Wilson is the hour-long unscripted series’ host. He will document the first minutes of 911 calls by focusing on 911 operators who pick up the phone.
According to an estimate, 911 call centers across the country receive around 240 million calls every year. ABC Entertainment president Karey Burke said that we often hear some of these calls’ stories on the news. He further added that we never get a chance to hear about the heroes that are the first point of contact. Additionally, these heroes are also essential to saving a life.
‘Emergency Call’ series will shine a light on these mysterious and brave voices and let everyone know about their contribution. Their desire to help drive these people’s voices. Luke Wilson will help us navigate through these extraordinary situations which will have you on the edge of your seat.
The show is all set to premiere on Monday, September 28. Scripted shows are slowly getting to start their production amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Still, these shows are struggling to get on full-fledged. Unscripted and reality fare have proven far more feasible to film during these challenging times.
Emergency Call comes at a time when the scrutiny surrounding law enforcement’s depiction’s on the television is increasing every day. The calls regarding police reform and racial justice in America is at an all-time high. Unscripted series such as Cops and Live PD was promptly canceled in these times.
‘Emergency Calls’ is sidestepping the action of when fire-fighters, police, or emergency medical teams actually arrive at the crises’ site.
This series is going to be a bit of an anomaly on the ABC Network. The network is mostly reality-drama driven. It has kept away from docu-dramas in recent years. It focuses on its successful slate of game shows. These shows include the Bachelor franchise and shiny floor shows such as American Idol and Dancing With the Stars.
8Hours Television’s Adeline Ramage Rooney and Jonny Slow are producing the upcoming series. Grant Kahler and Wilson are going to be the main showrunner. De Chinezen has created the series original format and it is licensed by Lineup Industries.
We will bring more details very soon. Until then, stay tuned and keep reading for the latest updates!
