Sirens TV Review

Continuing its push into the scripted comedy space, USA Network has given a 13-episode second season order to exec producers Denis Leary and Bob Fisher’s “Sirens.”

The half-hour laugher is based on a U.K. series (which, in turn, takes its material from a book) and stars Michael Mosley, Kevin Daniels, Kevin Bigley, Jessica McNamee and Josh Segarra and centers on Chicago EMTs who are aces at their jobs, but fail at their personal lives.

“’Sirens’ resonated with a broad fan base, and we are excited to grow this new audience further, as season two promises a lot more laughs and irreverent humor,” said USA Network prexy Chris McCumber. “We’re pleased to continue our partnership with Denis Leary and Bob Fisher, whose unique brand of witty, off-kilter and laugh-out-loud writing is brought to life by the immensely talented cast.”

“Sirens” is produced by Fox Television Studios and Apostle, in conjunction with Daybreak Pictures. Leary and Jim Serpico (“Rescue Me”) serve as executive producers for Apostle, along with Fisher. Hal Vogel, David Aukin (“Hyde Park on Hudson”), and David Leach of Daybreak Pictures also executive produce.

The series renewal comes after the second-season pickup of reality show “Chrisley Knows Best” about a wealthy, dapper Southerner and his large brood.

The network’s comedy-drama “Royal Pains” recently returned for its sixth season, while its comedy development slate includes projects from comedian-actor Billy Eichner, “Legally Blonde’s” Karen McCullah and “Ugly Betty’s” Michael Urie.
