Liv Tyler Set As the Female Lead Of Fox’s ‘9-1-1: Lone Star’ Spinoff Series
EXCLUSIVE: Liv Tyler is set to star opposite Rob Lowe in Fox’s 9-1-1 spinoff 9-1-1: Lonestar. This marks the first broadcast role for the former Leftovers star.
9-1-1: Lone Star hails from 9-1-1 creators/executive producers Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Tim Minear. Set in Austin, it follows sophisticated New York firefighter Owen (Lowe) who, along with his son, relocates to Austin and must try to balance saving those who are at their most vulnerable with solving the problems in his own life.

Equal parts compassionate and ruthless, Michelle is brilliant and wry, and the only one who can match wits with Owen in the station… where she will often put him in his place. While always on point at work, Michelle has a obsession she struggles to control: finding out what happened to her little sister Iris, who disappeared two years ago. She’ll stop at nothing to discover the truth, even if it means burning her own life down.
Murphy, Falchuk and Minear serve in the same capacity on the offshoot. Lowe is co-executive producer. 9-1-1: Lone Star is slated to will premiere on January 19, 2020 following the NFC Championship Game, and will air in thee mothership series’ Monday 9 PM slot during its midseason hiatus.
