Updated: Les Hill and Peter Phelps will star in Nine’s new action drama, Rescue Special Ops, (aka Rescue, Rescue Squad).
Also featuring Libby Tanner (All Saints), Gigi Edgley (Stingers) and Daniel Amalm (Home and Away, Two Fists, One Heart) the series follows elite ambos responding to extreme calls.
The show features ‘Dean Gallagher’, and ‘Chase’, brothers: competitive alpha males, who argue over everything, agree on nothing, but defend each other from outsiders no matter what. In previous information on the show, the roles were aged 29 and 26.
Cast have begun arduous training regimes, with much physicality attached to their new roles.
Nine’s head of drama Jo Horsburgh said, “Obviously, we started working on this series before we knew of the changes to All Saints and ours will prove different,” she said. “It’s edgy, lots of great stunts, self-contained, with a brilliant cast and the same high standards people have come to expect from a Nine series.”
The 13-part drama begins shooting locally next month and is expected to screen later this year.
