Tacoma FD: Talkoma FD - "Fire Choir"
Thursday, July 23, at 10:30pm ET/PT
Join Kevin Heffernan and Steve Lemme as they put the Q&A in quarantine with digital visits from special guests, and a sneak peek of what's to come on Tacoma FD!
Created by and starring Broken Lizard's Steve Lemme and Kevin Heffernan of the Super Troopers franchise, Tacoma FD is a comedy 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. Chief Terry McConky (Heffernan) and Captain Eddie Penisi (Lemme) lead the firehouse shenanigans and are joined by an eclectic crew played by Eugene Cordero(Andy), Marcus Henderson (Granny), Gabriel Hogan (Ike) and Hassie Harrison (Lucy). This season, the squad finds themselves fighting fires at a haunted house, trapped in an elevator during the annual Firefighter's Ball, and learning some new dance moves. Tacoma FD currently ranks among the year's top five ad-supported cable comedies while posting rare season-over-season audience growth.
