9-1-1: Lone Star hails from 9-1-1 creators/executive producers Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Tim Minear. Set in Austin, it follows Owen (Lowe), a sophisticated New York firefighter who, along with his son, relocates to the Texas capital and must try to balance saving those who are at their most vulnerable with solving the problems in his own life.
Tyler will play Chief Paramedic Michelle Blake, who’s a little rock ‘n’ roll, sometimes a bad girl but always boss. Equal parts compassionate and ruthless, Michelle is brilliant and wry, and the only one who can match wits with Owen in the station, where she often will put him in his place. While always on point at work, Michelle has a obsession she struggles to control: finding out what happened to her little sister Iris, who disappeared two years ago. She’ll stop at nothing to discover the truth, even if it means burning her own life down.
Murphy, Falchuk and Minear serve in the same capacity on the offshoot. Lowe is co-executive producer. 9-1-1: Lone Star will premiere on January 19, following the NFC Championship Game, and will air in the mothership series’ Monday 9 PM slot during its midseason hiatus.
The Lord of the Rings alumna Tyler co-stars as Lady Fitzwilliam on Hulu’s Harlots, which recently wrapped its third season. She previously starred as Megan “Meg” Abbott on HBO’s The Leftovers and recently was seen in BBC miniseries Gunpowder. Tyler, who next stars opposite Brad Pitt in the sci-fi feature Ad Astra, is repped by UTA and Untitled Entertainment.
