Angela Bassett stars in trailer for new Ryan Murphy drama ‘9-1-1″
It’s official, the new Ryan Murphy drama that is set to star Angela Bassett, Peter Krause and Connie Britton will start its run in January.
Production has only recently begun on 9-1-1 but it is already getting promoted with the first trailer released during Friday’s Game 3 of the World Series.
The ad was one minute long and has been billed as a vehicle for Angela Bassett though she is featured the least in the trailer.
Connie Britton stars as a 911 call center operator and Peter Krause as a police first responder. Bassett is also playing a police officer.
This is just the latest show of Murphy’s to air on Fox, his first was Scream Queens. Britton and Bassett have been in multiple Murphy productions.
The fact that the show is premiering in January shows the network has high hopes for it as the hottest shows are often debuted during that month.
