This is the story of a family of fire fighters. Joe is the patriarch; he is a former fire fighter, who is currently an arson investigator. His son, Ted is fireman, who's laid back. His other son, Chris is helicopter pilot who flies the victims to the hospital if necessary. Presently, they are investigating a series of fires that appear to be insurance scam, because the property's owner is in debt and his property is heavily mortgaged. They have one of the arsonists, however, he was so disfigured by the fire that they can't identify him. So Joe is hoping that Ted, who saved him can convince him to help them. And also there's a situation at the firehouse, Haley Green is the first female fire fighter and some of the guys are not pleased with it. Written by <rcs0411@yahoo.com>

Pilot to Short-lived ABC-TV series
26 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This TV-movie served as a pilot to the last series produced by Irwin Allen (Master of Disaster). The series concerned itself with the exploits of a family of firefighters headed by Lorne Greene. Of interest were a female firefighter and a Native-American arson investigator (two non-traditinal roles).

Among members from prior Irwin Allen endeavors are Burr De Benning ("City Beneath the Sea", "Amazing Captain Nemo") and musician Richard LaSalle ("Land of the Giants", "Swiss Family Robinson", "Fire", etc.).

The original concept of "Code Red" was based on a script by Irwin Allen called "Pumper One". The story was set in San Francisco and was based on the fire department featured in "The Towering Inferno". When Allen moved from Warner Bros. to Columbia Pictures in 1981, he had to remove all "Inferno" references. Thus, "Code Red" was born.
