*Actor Bill Nunn, who plays EMT “Cash” on the USA series “Sirens,” has been promoted from recurring guest star to series regular for the second season, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Based on a British series, “Sirens” — from executive producers Denis Leary and Bob Fisher — follows three Chicago EMTs (Michael Mosley, Kevin Daniels and Kevin Bigley).

Nunn, who appeared in nearly all the episodes in the half-hour comedy’s first season, joins an ensemble that also includes Jessica McNamee as a Chicago patrol officer.

Sirens was renewed for a second season in June.

Nunn who famously played Radio Raheem in Spike Lee’s “Do The Right Thing,” recently appeared in 2012’s “Won’t Back Down.”
