Moviegoers have embraced “Firefighter” in a big way, according to a report from The Hollywood Reporter.
Fox picked up the movie’s license for a potential second season in April.
In the first episode, the main character, a firefighter, is tasked with rescuing a hostage.
The movie is scheduled to debut in theaters July 24.
The movie is set to star Chris Pine, Kevin Hart, Emma Stone, and Will Ferrell.
It is being written by Adam McKay and directed by Jason Reitman.
The studio said it hopes the movie will help spark interest in the genre.
“The story of ‘Fire Fighter’ is about the need for heroism and the need to do the right thing, and it is also about a young man who discovers that he has an innate ability to protect,” Fox chairman Gary Newman said in a statement.
“We think that the story will help inspire viewers to think about the role of heroes in the modern world and will help us make ‘Fire Fighting’ a big, global hit.”
