    Almost certainly will go the way of Trauma and Chicago Code if NBC picks it up. Shame… I’m badly craving a medical drama.

  2. maggie says:

    funny you should mention Trauma, Acey, wasn’t Taylor Kinney on that show too?!

    • Taylor Kinney's sweaty abs says:

      He was indeed. And Trauma was actually a really good show, but, like Friday Night Lights, NBC got frightened by quality because they haven’t seen it in a while.

  3. I Heart Chuck Bass (and Damon Salvatore) says:

    Does he have lots of opportunities to be shirtless? If so, count me in.

    Would love to see Jessalyn Gilsig cast as a female lead in this. A good fire fighter series would be awesome.

  5. Jason says:

    Would’ve made a nice Green Arrow on The CW, too. But Stephen Amell is a hottie, as well. Anxious to see him in an expanded role. Is Taylor still with Gaga? Hold onto those A-list purse strings.

    I’ve been waiting for another Third Watch-ish show! Taylor is wicked good eye candy

  7. Patricia says:

    Sounds really good I need to see more of him on my TV. I would also like something like third watch that show was really good

  8. Isabelle says:

    Sounds awesome, nervous that its on NBC though but hopefully with Dick Wolf’s name attached they’ll give it a decent shot.

  9. Hamlet says:

    This headline is easily misinterpreted if you don’t know who Dick Wolf is but are familiar with Taylor Kinney’s previous work.

  10. Jessica says:

    Taylor Kinney is one of the worst actors ever!
