Denis Leary’s USA Pilot Recruits Modern Family and Pan Am Actors
Michael Mosley, Kevin Daniels
Pan Am alum Michael Mosley and Modern Family recurring player Kevin Daniels have been cast in Denis Leary's half-hour comedy pilot for USA, the network announced Thursday.
Sirens follows three of Chicago's top EMTs whose occasionally self-loathing, sometimes narcissistic and constantly self-destructive personalities make them poor choices for relationships, friendships and most careers. However, they are great at saving lives.

Mosley will star as Johnny, an attractive, sports-loving EMT who works with his best friend Hank (Daniels). The Vow's Jessica McNamee will play Theresa, a gorgeous and intelligent Chicago cop who still holds a candle for her ex, Johnny, but had to move on when he couldn't commit. Rounding out the cast is Kevin Bigley (Game Change), a wide-eyed and enthusiastic new EMT who still lives at home with his parents and is willing to take on whatever tasks Jonny and Hank give him.
Leary will co-write with Bob Fisher (Wedding Crashers) and both will executive-produce the project with Rescue Me's Jim Serpico, Hal Vogel and David Aukin. Victor Nelli (Happy Endings) will also executive-produce and direct the pilot, set to shoot in Chicago later this month.
Sirens marks one of USA's first half-hour projects. Leary and Serpico are also producing a comedy for their old network, FX, titled Bronx Warrants.
Mosley, who also appeared as Avery's co-captor on 30 Rock last season, will next recur on Last Resort. Daniels recurs on Modern Family as Cam and Mitch's friend Longinus.
