USA Network has nabbed the rights to the hit Fox procedural 9-1-1 following an agreement between NBCUniversal Television and Streaming and Disney Media and Entertainment Distribution.
This puts 9-1-1 to be in a prime position to be a syndicated juggernaut for USA Network like Dick Wolf’s Law & Order: SVU and Chicago franchise.
Under this new deal, USA will air all previous four seasons of 9-1-1 as well as the show’s current fifth season. 9-1-1 will begin airing on USA on Wednesday nights from 7 – 11 on January 5.
Starring Angela Bassett, Peter Krause and Jennifer Love Hewitt, 9-1-1 follows the lives of police officers, firefighters and dispatchers as they dive headfirst in some of the most frightening, heart stopping and shocking situations.
The series also stars Oliver Stark, Aisha Hinds, Kenneth Choi, Ryan Guzman, Corinne Massiah, Marcanthonee Jon Reis and Gavin McHugh as series regulars.
“9-1-1 is the perfect addition to USA Network, which has long been a destination for big, iconic characters and event television”, Val Boreland, Executive Vice President of Entertainment Content Acquisitions at NBC Universal Television & Streaming said. “The show is a proven hit with critics and audiences alike, making this a home run for our viewers who can now enjoy these incredible seasons as part of our portfolio’s growing library.”
The series is produced by 20th Television in association with Ryan Murphy Television and Brad Falchuk Teley-Vision. Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Tim Minear are creators, executive producers and writers on the series. Bradley Buecker is an executive producer and director.
