Vin Diesel is Getting His Own TV Show on NBC

NBC and Vin Diesel are combining their forces for a new procedural drama series First Responders. 

Vin Diesel is looking to showcase his producer skills on the small screen and NBC is teaming up with the Fast & Furious actor. Variety reports that Vin Diesel and NBC are developing a new drama titled First Responders. The Furious 7 star won't be in the cast for the series, but he will serve as an executive producer with the series, but he will serve as an executive producer with the series serving as an offering from Diesel's One Race Television company.
First Responders is described as a dynamic, high-action procedural about young veterans struggling to reintegrate into society, while heroically saving civilian lives along the way. The elite team is the best Search and Rescue operation in the country, and is run by husband-and-wife duo, Doc and Lil Pierce, whose Southern California coastal base provides a sense of community and surrogate family for their ex-military staff. While Doc and Lil can save anyone else’s life in the darkest times, they have been unable to find their own son and will stop at nothing to solve the mystery of his disappearance and bring him back home.
Heroic missions carried out by former veterans in Southern California? The idea that Vin Diesel might show up for a cameo to promote family values is pretty exciting. Former NCIS writer/producer Jesse Stern has been tapped to write the script and San Andreas helmer Brad Peyton will direct the movie as well as executive produce the project. What do you think?
