Kevin Tighe and Randolph Mantooth lead an acclaimed cast as two hard-working paramedics trying to deal with the daily crises of their job with wit, humor and bravery. Including the thrilling TV movie "The Wedsworth-Townsend Act," it's the gripping series that blazed the trail for all action series to come!
