USA Network has signed Denis Leary to develop and co-write a half-hour pilot based on the British series Sirens, which follows a group of young paramedics.
Leary (FX's Rescue Me) will co-write with Bob Fisher (Traffic Light) and both will executive produce with Jim Serpico, Hal Vogel and David Aukin. Apostle and Fox Television Studios will produce with Daybreak Pictures.
Sirens, which aired on Channel 4 in the U.K., was inspired by EMT paramedic Tom Reynolds' book, Blood, Sweat and Tea. The series follows three EMTs as they "bicker, fight and shag their way through the darkly funny maelstrom of their lives," according to the release.
