The show follows three of Chicago’s best EMTs, Hank (Daniels), Johnny (Michael Mosley) and Brian (Kevin Bigley), whose sometimes self-loathing, other times narcissistic, and always downright self-destructive personalities make them unqualified for sustaining relationships, friendships and most occupations. They are, however, uniquely qualified for saving anyone unlucky enough to wind up in their ambulance.

Co-created by Leary and Bob Fisher, Johnny is a good-looking, sports-loving, Chicago EMT working with his best friend Hank. Brian is a wide-eyed and excitable new EMT who still lives with his parents.

Daniels is currently a recurring character on ABC’s “Modern Family” as Cam and Mitchell’s friend Longinus.
