Fox Unveils First Look At Ryan Murphy's 9-1-1

This is no emergency, but it certainly packs a shot of adrenaline like a real one would. 

Fox has unveiled the first look at Ryan Murphy's upcoming procedural drama series 9-1-1. The network released a minute-long teaser trailer during Friday's Game 3 of the World Series.

Starring American Horror Story series actresses Connie Britton and Angela Bassett, 9-1-1 explores the high-pressure experiences of emergency responders–including firefighters, police officers, and paramedics–as they are thrust into shocking, frightening, and often dangerous situations. The individuals save those in need while trying to sort through their own problems off duty.

The footage features Britton, who plays a 911 operator, explaining that "there are two types of emergency," the first being kind "we all have everyday." She follows up, "Then there's the second kind of emergency. The kind that comes without warning."

We also get a glimpse at Bassett's character, shown holding a gun and walking along the side of a house, presumably toward a target. We then see Peter Krause's character offering his help to a woman about to jump from a ledge and commit suicide. Unfortunately, the woman pushes herself off before he can bring her to safety. 

Take a look in the video above. 

Written and executive produced by Murphy and his Nip/Tuck, Glee, American Horror Story, and Scream Queens collaborator Brad Falchuk, 9-1-1 also stars Oliver Stark, Aisha Hinds, Kenneth Choi, and Rockmond Dunbar. The series will premiere on Fox in January 2018.
