Rescue Me (TV Show created by Denis Leary and Peter Tolan)
Veteran firefighter, Tommy Gavin, is an ill-tempered, self-destructive, hypocritical, manipulative man and a relapsed alcoholic, struggling with the loss of his cousin and best friend, Jimmy Keefe, who died on September 11th, 2001, and often visits Tommy in visions. Besides, he has to deal with an ex-wife, who lives across the street, who he still loves, and their children, in particularly a teenage daughter who takes after her father.
Starring: Denis Leary, Michael Lombardi, Steven Pasquale, Daniel Sunjata, John Scurti, Andrea Roth, Callie Thorne, James McCaffrey, Natalie Distler, Robert John Burke, Lenny Clarke, Jack McGee, Adam Ferrara, Michael Zegen, Tatum O'Neal, Larenz Tate
Why the love for this TV Show: It deals with the real-life issues of a group of firefighters in a very bright and funny way. With firefighter relatives that gave up their lives during the 9/11 attacks, comedian Denis Leary based the scripts on real stories told by those who put their lives at risk for the safety of the New Yorkers.
Season 5 also has a very special guest appearance by Michael J. Fox as never seen before.
