Fox’s offshoot of its hit 9-1-1 has cast Liv Tyler.
Tyler, whose TV roles include Hulu’s Harlots and HBO’s The Leftovers, joins the spinoff series and will star opposite male lead Rob Lowe.
9-1-1: Lone Star follows a New York fireman (Lowe) who re-locates to Austin, Texas, and must try to balance saving others and keep his life together solving the problems in his own life. According to Variety, Tyler will play Chief Paramedic Michelle Blake, who is described as brilliant, wry, and the only one who can match wits with Lowe’s character’s sophistication in the station. But Michelle also has an obsession she doesn’t control: finding out what happened to her little sister Iris who disappeared.
9-1-1: Lone Star hails from Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, and Tim Minear. The three also exec produce the series. Lowe will serve as a co-executive producer.
The casting news was first reported by Deadline.
