Dick Wolf Docu-series ‘Nightwatch’ to Premiere On A&E In January 2015

Nightwatch AE

Dick Wolf’s latest project, “Nightwatch,” will premiere Jan. 22 on A&E.

The hour-long docu-series from executive producers Wolf, Tom Thayer and 44 Blue Productions’ Rasha Drachkovitch will follow emergency teams working the intense and life-threatening overnight shift in New Orleans, Louisiana.

“’Nightwatch’ focuses on first responders, working the graveyard shift, in one of the world’s most notorious night cities — New Orleans,” Wolf tells Variety. “We take the viewer behind the scenes in real time as EMS, police and fire respond to every kind of call possible, many of which are stranger than fiction.”

Adds Drachkovitch, “We were amazed by the incredible cooperation and access from all three of New Orleans’ first responder agencies. They all embraced us and our crew, and gave an unfiltered front seat view of the city’s action, intrigue and drama.”

“Nightwatch” is produced by Wolf Reality (“Chicago Fire,” ”Chicago PD,” “Cold Justice”) and 44 Blue Productions (“Wahlburgers,” “Donnie Loves Jenny”).

  1. I just watched the season finale of Nightwatch. I hope it will be coming back for another season. My late husband was a fireman/ambulance driver in a small city near Pittsburgh, PA, but those were the days when they only drove; the men weren’t permitted to perform any life saving measures back then. The men and women on this show are actual hero’s who put their lives on the line every single day in order to save the lives of total strangers. I pray for the safety of the paramedics and police officers as I watch each episode. Please bring it back.
