Rescue Me star Denis Leary has agreed to develop and co-write an American adaptation of the British television series, Sirens, for USA Network. In a press release, USA described the half-hour show as the “humorous antics and dramatic conflicts of young paramedics” who “fight and shag their way through the darkly funny maelstrom of their lives. Behind the uniforms, the sirens, and the incredibly fast driving, they are three ordinary blokes trying to make it through yet another shift. But once they’ve finished saving other people’s lives, they need to salvage their own.”

Co-writing with Leary is Bob Fisher (Wedding Crashers).
