Below, Murphy reveals to TVLine why the show’s out-of-the-gate success caught even him by surprise, talks Connie Britton‘s involvement in the already renewed Season 2 (the actress initially signed on for just one year), and previews the
If you’ve watched the Ryan Murphy-produced drama, which has shown a man falling out of an upside-down roller coaster and a metal bar piercing another fellow’s cranium, you’ve no doubt noticed a few members of the stellar cast. There’s Angela Bassett as Athena Grant, an L.A.P.D. patrol sergeant with a troubled marriage; Peter Krause as a fire captain with a dark past; and Connie Britton as Abby Clark,

After weeks of exchanging flirty phone calls, firefighter Evan “Buck” Buckley and 9-1-1 operator Abby Clark will meet face-to-face this Wednesday (Fox, 9/8c), though their long-awaited “first date” probably won’t go down the way you’ve been imagining.

“It was exciting and daunting,” Oliver Stark (aka Buck) tells TVLine of shooting his first in-person scenes with Abby. “I was actually a little nervous for it. Like, it’s Connie Britton. What if I’m rubbish and she’s like,
Although the ruthlessness of “The Godfather” was an inspiration for the real-life Blanco, who even named her fourth son Michael Corleone, Zeta-Jones is no Marlon Brando, unless it’s by way of “Grey Gardens.” While she brings a certain theatrical glee to the role, she lacks the necessary menace for a woman who supposedly has the blood of over 200 people on her hands.

The Parenthood star, 46, opened up about her intestinal issues after sharing a photo of her bloated stomach on Wednesday night, which prompted speculation that she was pregnant with her fourth child.
She explained in a YouTube video that she posted the photo to raise awareness of intestinal issues and to encourage people to get a colonoscopy.

Representatives for Potter did not immediately respond to People’s request for confirmation that she was expecting.
Potter and Allison, an Orthopedic Surgeon at USC County Hospital, are parents to 12-year-old daughter,
Unfortunately, for me, the series just comes off as being ridiculous. Since I have a fascination with true-crime, I've heard some pretty intense real-life 9-1-1 calls and this series in no way captures the true intensity of it. On top of that, the drama surrounding the characters that fill the series isn't really that interesting. Especially the arc surrounding that idiot firefighter that they just won't fire for some reason! He has got to be one of the most annoying characters on TV.
