“Fire Country” Picked Up For Series

CBS picked up “Fire Country”, formerly known as “Cal Fire” from CBS Studios.

“I love all these people so much I didn’t believe I would actually get to do this job. But ITS HAPPENING !!!”, wrote Diane Farr on her Instagram page. She continued her post by saying thank you to the CBS TV Studios, Joan Rater, Tony Phelan, James Strong and the dream cast which includes Max Thieriot, Billy Burke, Kevin Alejandro, Stephanie Arcila, Jordan Calloway and Jules Latimer.

The show is about a young convict named Bode Donovan (Thieriot), who joins a firefighting program that returns him to his small Northern California hometown, where he and other inmates work alongside elite firefighters to extinguish massive blazes across the region.

Diane Farr will play Cheryl, a take-charge executive on the Cal Fire board who is the smartest person in any room. After years of firefighting in the field, Cheryl now manages frequent clashes over allocating resources among over 400 Cal Fire stations. Cheryl and her loving husband have been weathering the storm of a major loss, when to her shock, the mystery of a more recent heartbreak may finally be resolved.
