Mondays on NBC (9-10 p.m. ET)

NBC’s Peabody Award-winning drama begins its fourth season and remains an intense drama about the brave and dedicated people who serve as police, paramedics and firefighters on the “third watch” — the shift from 3-11 p.m. – as they strive to keep the streets safe.

In its debut season (1999-2000), “Third Watch” was nominated for a People’s Choice Award (Best New Drama Series). “Third Watch” blossomed in the third season, generating a 37 percent improvement versus its same time period the prior season in adults 18-49. It continues to be part of NBC’s winning Monday-night line-up.

The ensemble drama, set in New York City, stars Michael Beach (NBC’s “ER”), Coby Bell (“Buffy The Vampire Slayer”), Amy Carlson (“Falcone”), Eddie Cibrian (“Living Out Loud”), Molly Price (“Pushing Tin”), Kim Raver (“Trinity”), Anthony Ruivivar (“Starship Troopers”), Skipp Sudduth (“Ronin”), Jason Wiles (“Beverly Hills, 90210”) and Chris Bauer (“61*”).

The police of the 55th Precinct check in and out for their daily tours of duty. Maurice “Bosco” Boscorelli’s (Wiles) glory-hungry “supercop” mentality annoys his long-suffering partner Faith Yokas (Price), who is constantly trying to juggle her role as a cop, a mother — and a wife to husband Fred (Bauer). Bosco’s flashy law enforcement style doesn’t go over well with the streetwise veteran cop John “Sully” Sullivan (Sudduth) who wrestles with an unstable marriage and the assignment of his green, by-the-book partner, Ty Davis (Bell), the son of his former partner who was killed in the line of duty.

Monte “Doc” Parker (Beach) and Carlos Nieto (Ruivivar) are a paramedic team, both devoted to the people they help. “Doc” continues to show the ropes to Carlos, and together they deal with the daily tragedies, going beyond the call of duty to help people in the community. Kim Zambrano (Raver) is another young and tough paramedic, whose ex-husband is firefighter Jimmy Doherty (Cibrian).

His tenacity is contrasted by his reckless personal life. Firefighter Alex Taylor (Carlson) is an energetic, courageous woman who keeps Doherty on his toes. From blazing buildings and car accidents to crime scenes and domestic emergencies, these unsung heroes are often first on the scene.

“Third Watch” is from John Wells Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. John Wells, Christopher Chulack, Edward Allen Bernero and Brooke Kennedy are executive producers. Bernero and Wells are co-creators.
