TV show description:
A dramedy, this series revolves around the work and personal lives of EMT’s who work for the Eminent Ambulance Company in Chicago.
Their sometimes silly and self-righteous (even self-destructive) personalities make them unqualified for sustaining relationships, friendships, and most occupations. Thankfully for the citizens of the windy city, they are uniquely qualified for saving anyone who winds up in their ambulance.
Johnny Farrell (Michael Mosley) is a good-looking, sports-loving EMT. He works alongside his lifelong friend, Hank St. Clare (Kevin Daniels), who’s openly gay.
Theresa Kelly (Jessica McNamee) is a smart female cop with the Chicago PD who still loves her ex, Johnny. Ultimately she had to move on when he wouldn’t commit. Wide-eyed and excitable, Brian Czyk (Kevin Bigley) is a new EMT who still lives with his parents.
Episode #10 — Shotgun Wedding
Getting shot in the arm during a robbery causes Theresa to assess where she is on the road to her dreams, and she doesn’t like what she sees. Afraid that her FBI talk is for real this time, Johnny proposes that they go get married. As in, today. Right now.
So with holy matrimony in their sights and Maeve and Hank sworn to secrecy as witnesses, Johnny and Theresa head down to the courthouse. Of course, the secrecy thing seems to elude Hank and Maeve, who arrive with the whole station house in tow, plus Billy. Unfortunately, the powers that be inform them about the 24-hour waiting period, but when Billy mentions that they can get married at his uncle’s church across town, the excited newlyweds-to-be take it as a good sign. And that’s when things really start to go off the rail.
First aired: April 14, 2015.
