Rescue Me

Rescue Me is a drama that premiered on July 21, 2004. The series focuses on the professional and personal lives of a group of firefighters in the FDNY (Fire Department City of New York) in the fictional Ladder 62 / Engine 99 firehouse.

The show mainly follows veteran firefighter Tommy Gavin (Denis Leary) and his ever troublesome family as they deal with real life issues, either with post 9/11 trauma or domestic problems. Tommy has to struggle with the loss of his cousin and best friend Jimmy Keefe, who died on September 11, 2001, and frequently visits Tommy in visions. In the pilot episode, Tommy and his wife have already separated and Tommy has moved across the street. He is ill-tempered, self-destructive, hypocritical, manipulative and a relapsed alcoholic

Rescue Me was created by Denis Leary and Peter Dolan, who also serve as executive producers and head writers, and is produced by Cloudland Company, Apostle, Dreamworks Televison and Sony Pictures Televison.
