THURSDAY, MAY 9 AT 10:30PM ET/PT ON TRUTV
The seventh episode of truTV’s newest scripted comedy, Tacoma FD, premieres on Thursday, May 9nd at 10:30pm ET/PT. In “Old Flame,” Eddie runs into his cradle-robbing first love and must decide whether to rekindle his romance with the sexy senior citizen. Then, Granny and Lucy compete to win the affections of an androgynous dispatcher and Terry discovers moisturizer. Guest starring Joanna Cassidy.
Tacoma FD is set in a firehouse in one of America’s rainiest cities - light on blazes that need extinguishing, these firefighters keep themselves entertained with creative competitions, friendly first responder rivalries and no shortage of bizarre emergency calls. Leading the firehouse shenanigans are Chief Terry McConky (Heffernan) and Captain Eddie Penisi (Lemme), who are joined by an eclectic crew played by Eugene Cordero (Andy), Marcus Henderson (Granny), Gabriel Hogan (Ike) and Hassie Harrison (Lucy) for the 10-episode first season.
Rounding out the cast of Tacoma FD are guest stars Suzy Nakamura (Dr. Ken), who portrays an eager councilwoman with no patience for tomfoolery, and Heather Mazur (Insecure) as Chief McConky’s wife and Captain Penisi’s sister. Jimmy Tatro (American Vandal), Maria Russell (Lights Out) and Jamie Kaler (My Boys) will also guest star as members of the Tacoma Police Department (PD), Tacoma FD’s first responder rivals. Additional guest stars throughout the season include: Super Troopers co-creator and star Paul Soter – who also serves as a writer and consulting producer for Tacoma FD – as well as JD Pardo, Nat Faxon, Will Sasso, Christopher Neiman, Kevin Pereira and Brian “Q” Quinn.
Tacoma FD is co-created and executive produced by Heffernan and Lemme alongside David Miner and Greg Walter from 3 Arts Entertainment and Kyle Clark from Silverscreen Pictures.
