Boasting a hot, new ensemble cast and high calibre creative team led by Dick Wolf, the much anticipated series gives an edge-of-your-seat view into the lives of everyday heroes. Fans can now watch the first episode at GlobalTV.com/chicagofire and on the iOS Global Video app before its world premiere on Wednesday, October 10 - 10pm ET/PT on Global."Chicago Fire is an explosive and emotionally charged series, which will capture the hearts of viewers everywhere," said Barb Williams, SVP, Content, Shaw Media. "The sizzling cast already has people abuzz about the premiere, and an advance preview is a surefire way to feed the building curiosity and further generate excitement for the television debut on Global."The action-driven drama starring Jesse Spencer (House), Taylor Kinney (Vampire Diaries) and David Eigenberg (Sex and the City) follows the everyday heroes of Chicago Firehouse 51. With big reputations and hefty egos at play, coupled with the pressure to perform, there's plenty of guilt and blame to go around when a tragedy claims the life of one of their own. Coping with loss, a grueling schedule and tight quarters, the team's personal relationships are put to the test. While some flames burn out and others sizzle, there will be no shortage of steam inside the firehouse walls. But the complex men and women of the Chicago Fire Department understand one thing - when it's "go-time," they put aside their differences and put everything on the line to save those in distress.Created by Derek Haas and Michael Brandt (3:10 to Yuma), the series is executive produced by Emmy®-winning Dick Wolf (Law & Order).SOCIAL MEDIA LINKS:Twitter:Global TV http://twitter.com/Global_TVGlobal TV PR http://twitter.com/GlobalTV_PRFacebook:Global TV http://www.facebook.com/globaltelevisionAbout Global Television Global Television is a Shaw Media network.About Shaw Communications Inc.
