USA Will Bring Back Comedy Series LA Times
The USA Network likes what it has seen so far from a comedy series that bowed on the cable network earlier this year. The Los Angeles Times’ Show Tracker reports that the channel ordered a second season of "Sirens," produced by Denis Leary.
The half-hour series is about Chicago EMTs, and in its first season averaged “a modest but consistent audience” on the cable network, the piece notes. It drew 1.6 million total viewers on average, and 870,000 in the 25-54 demographic.
The show's first 10-episode season premiered March 6, 2014. Season two will expand to 13 episodes.
“'Sirens' resonated with a broad fan base, and we are excited to grow this new audience further, as Season 2 promises a lot more laughs and irreverent humor,” USA Network President Chris McCumber said in a statement. “We’re pleased to continue our partnership with Denis Leary and Bob Fisher, whose unique brand of witty, off-kilter and laugh-out-loud writing is brought to life by the immensely talented cast."
Major cast members are Michael Mosley, Kevin Daniels, Kevin Bigley and Jessica McNamee.
