Miami First Responders Drama In Works At CBS From Juan Carlos Coto, James Hanlon & Eric Christian Olsen

EXCLUSIVE: CBS, which has long tradition in drama procedurals, is currently the only major broadcast network without a successful first-responders series as Fox has the 9-1-1 franchise, NBC has Chicago Fire and ABC has Station 19. CBS is hoping to remedy that with Rescue: MIA. The drama, which is in development at the network, is executive produced by a star of one of CBS’ hit procedurals, NCIS: Los Angeles‘ Eric Christian Olsen, via his Cloud Nine Productions.

It is written by Juan Carlos Coto, executive producer on 9-1-1 who also served as consulting producer on 9-1-1: Lone Star, from a story co-written by NCIS: Los Angeles director James Hanlon who also has directed episodes of Station 19 and Chicago Fire.

Somewhat in the vein of CBS’ juggernaut Blue Bloods, Rescue: MIA revolves around a legendary family of first responders that works together to rescue the citizens of Miami from emergencies and disasters, even as long-buried secrets threaten to tear apart their familial bonds.

Hanton was a NYC firefighter on the ground during and in the aftermath of 9/11, and his documentary film 9/11 won a Peabody Award as well as two Emmys.

Coto, Hanlon and Olsen executive produce Rescue: MIA. CBS Studios where Cloud Nine has a deal, is the studio.

Hanlon has directed 16 episodes of NCIS: Los Angeles and he also has directed an episode of TNT’s Animal Kingdom. He is repped By Zero Gravity Managment and APA.

Coto is writing and serves as executive producer/showrunner onThe Ledger, an action drama at Will Packer Media headlined by Cobra Kai‘s Xolo Maridueña. Known for his work as showrunner on Robert Rodriguez’s From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series, Coto also previously co-executive produced the CW’s Nikita and worked on NBC’s Heroes and Fox’s 24. He is repped by UTA.

Olsen’s Cloud Nine Productions is repped by UTA and Gretchen Rush at Hansen Jacobson Teller.

Could Eric Christian Olsen Be on the Way Out of ‘NCIS: Los Angeles’ As He Adds New Role?

Star of NCIS: Los Angeles, Eric Christian Olsen has a new project on the way. Could it mean a separation from NCIS?

That is what fans are asking after Olsen announced his new project Rescue: MIA. The new series is a first responder-based drama. This will introduced CBS to the first responder genre. NBC and ABC have their own shows with Chicago Fire and Station 19 while Fox has 9-1-1. However, it could have implications for his current role.

Marty Deeks is integral to the show, and it is hard to imagine him not being there. However, Miami is a long way from Los Angeles. It isn’t impossible to do both shows, but it depends if Olsen wants to dedicate his time to executive producing or acting. During this new season of NCIS: Los Angeles Olsen is going to be writing an episode.

There is no word one way or another, so this is all speculative. It does sound like Olsen is excited for this new project. He announced the show that is being written by Juan Carlos Coto along with James Hanlon working in a producing role. Both Coto and Hanlon have worked on other first responder series.

This series is going to be based, “around a legendary family of first responders that works together to rescue the citizens of Miami from emergencies and disasters, even as long-buried secrets threaten to tear apart their familial bonds.”

Hanlon has also worked on NCIS: Los Angeles. He directed 16 episodes of the show and has worked in a number of shows outside of the crime/first responder genre. While Olsen will be reliable for this season, perhaps future seasons will be affected if this new show takes off.

Marty Deeks Story not Complete on ‘NCIS: Los Angeles’

One thing that fans would hate to see is if Marty Deeks leaves before his story is fully fleshed out. While that seems silly to say after 13 seasons, the truth is that show producers haven’t pulled the trigger on the backstory because they are unsure of where to go with it.

“We’ve never done the ‘Deeks, M‘ episode,” showrunner Scott Gemmill said to TV Line. “We haven’t really settled on what we want to do yet, and because it’s taken us this long, now it feels a lot more pressured to do it in such a way that the fans feel like the wait was worth it.”

With the new project, Rescue: MIA the Deeks story might be put on hold further. If that is the case, fans will not be super thrilled. They have wanted this story for a long time. If they don’t get it, it’s going to be a lot of disappointment.

‘NCIS: Los Angeles’ Star Eric Christian Olsen Executive Producing New First Responders Series ‘Rescue: MIA’

NCIS: Los Angelesstar Eric Christian Olsen has a new job!

On Thursday, October 14, Olsen made the big announcement via Instagram. He will be the executive producer for the first responders’ show, Rescue MIA.

“Aaaaaaalright, who wants to move to Miami? Let’s make it hot! Congrats to handsome pants @jameshanlonnyc and @cotovino for hustle and dedication. Thanks to @cbstvstudios for being the best creative partners ever.”

CBS is the only major network that doesn’t have a successful first responders series. NBC is known for Chicago Fire while ABC has Station 19, and Fox has 9-1-1.

Deadline reported that Olsen’s Cloud Nine Productions will be producing the show. The drama is currently in the works and is being written by Juan Carlos Coto, who previously executive produced for 9-1-1. James Hanlon co-wrote a story. Hanlon previously directed episodes of Station 19 and Chicago Fire.

The new series will revolve “around a legendary family of first responders that works together to rescue the citizens of Miami from emergencies and disasters, even as long-buried secrets threaten to tear apart their familial bonds.” So in the same vein of NCIS: Los Angeles but more local, every day.

Finally, the new season of NCIS: Los Angeles will truly be a family affair. Olsen will be writing an episode for Season 13. Meanwhile, Daniela Ruah will be directing an episode. This will be her first time behind the camera directing. If you didn’t know, Ruah is married to Eric’s brother and stunt double, David.

Previously, Olsen wrote the NCIS: Los Angeles Season 11, Episode 10 titled “Mother.”

How ‘NCIS: Los Angeles’ is Royalty

When a show is on more than one season that’s an epic achievement. NCIS: Los Angeles has been around for thirteen years. While some of the actors may not consider themselves royalty, LL Cool J believes that they all are.

In a 2017 interview with Seat42F, the rapper-turned-actor spoke about how he sees his team and the actors behind the iconic characters.

“These guys really see themselves as knights,” he said about the show’s characters.

“It’s a knighthood, females included, all of them see themselves as knights,” he added. “See themselves as people who are part of the honored tradition of making sure that they protect the innocent and get rid of the bad guys.”

Aside from being royalty, he spoke about how his character, Sam Hanna, has evolved during the thirteen years.

“I think you grow and evolve and become — I don’t know if relaxed is the right word — but more accustomed and acclimated to the pressures of that life,” he explained. “I think the character becomes acclimated to what’s going on and the pressures, but my character has grown because the sense of family has deepened. His sense of honor has deepened.”


Prior to his role of NCIS: LOS ANGELES, Eric Christian Olsen has starred in several feature films including "Get Real," "Not Another Teen Movie, " "Fired Up, " "Local Boys, " "The Hot Chick" and "Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd."

Additional feature film credits for Olsen include "Pearl Harbor," "Cellular," "Beerfest," "The Last Kiss," "License To Wed," "The Comebacks, " "Sunshine Cleaning" and "Eagle Eye."

Olsen's television credits include starring roles in "Tru Calling" and "The Loop" as well as appearances in "Brothers and Sisters," "ER," "24" and "Community."

He can also be seen in "Perry Hilton," a parody spoofing Paris Hilton's infamous sex tape, on Will Ferrell's website,

Olsen can next be seen in the feature films "The Six Wives Of Henry Lefay," opposite Tim Allen and "The Thing," a prequel to the 1980's classic.

Olsen was born in Eugene, OR and raised in Iowa. He currently lives in Los Angeles, CA. His birth date is May 31.

While Marty Deeks (played by Eric Christian Olsen) remains a present character on the NCIS spin-off series, the actor announced a major new role at CBS. While fans congratulated the star, many wondered what this would mean for the fate of his character on NCIS LA.

Eric took to Instagram, to announce he would be stepping away from the NCIS franchise and starring in a completely different CBS series.

He posted a screenshot of the Deadline article and captioned it: “Aaaaaaalright, who wants to move to Miami?

“Let's make it hot! Congrats to handsome pants @jameshanlonnyc and @cotovino for hustle and dedication. Thanks to @cbstvstudios for being the best creative partners ever,” he shared.

Tons of fans took to his comments to congratulate him and express their excitement, including Nadine who wrote: “Congratulations Mr Olsen, this is great news.”

Eric is set to star in CBS’ only first responders series, Rescue: MIA, however major details about the series have been kept under wraps.

Despite this, Deadline reported the show would follow a “legendary family of first responders that works together to rescue the citizens of Miami from emergencies and disasters, even as long-buried secrets threaten to tear apart their familial bonds.”

This is set to be a monumental move for CBS as it was the only major network without a hit first-responders series.

Despite its long list of procedural dramas including NCIS, SWAT and Blue Bloods.

As Eric will be producing the series it’s yet to be seen if he will also put his acting to use and star as a character.

The showrunners have hidden details about who will be joining the cast as the series is still in development at the network.

Other fans also took to the actor's Instagram account to share their thoughts: “Congratulations Eric your star just keeps rising and rising, happiness is in the journey.”

Iris commented: “Congratulations! Coming from a family of first responders from Miami I can’t wait to watch!!”

However, Marci wondered: “I’m gonna be selfish here, is Deeks leaving? If so I will cry all weekend.”

This was a very valid question because Eric’s character Marty Deeks made his first appearance on NCIS LA in season one, which aired in 2009.

He originally worked as Los Angeles Police Department Detective, originally serving as the team's LAPD liaison.

However, he got promoted to an NCIS investigator and also became a member of the NCIS: Office of Special Projects team

Although nothing has been revealed about Marty potentially leaving NCIS, as the actor works on Rescue: MIA.

In fact, it seems as though Eric will have to juggle both roles, as NCIS showrunner R.Scott Gemmill hinted, the latest instalment of the show could explore more of Marty’s background.

Speaking to TV Line he stated: “We haven’t really settled on what we want to do yet.

“And because it’s taken us this long, now it feels a lot more pressured to do it in such a way that the fans feel like the wait was worth it.”

Fans will have to keep watching NCIS: Los Angeles to see what the series will make of Marty’s fate.

NCIS: Los Angeles season 13 continues Sunday, September 17 on CBS.
