Deadline reports that Liv Tyler has been cast opposite Rob Lowe as the female lead of 9-1-1: Lone Star. Set in Austin, Texas, this spin-off will follow the same format as its predecessor, this time focusing on the day-to-day drama of civil servants in the Lone Star state.
Tyler will take on the role of Chief Paramedic Michelle Blake, who is described as "a little rock-n-roll, sometimes a bad girl, but always boss." Don't let that bad-girl image fool you though; Michelle is also capable of deep compassion and sharp wit, which will serve her well in her dealings with the show's other lead character, a New York firefighter named Owen (Lowe). But everyone has a dark side, and Michelle's happens to be an obsession with unraveling her little sister Iris' disappearance two years ago.
9-1-1: Lone Star premieres Sunday, Jan. 19 on Fox following the NFC Championship Game. The drama will then move to Mondays at 9/8c on Fox.
