A&E’s new thriller series “Panic 9-1-1” takes 911 calls to a whole new level never seen or heard before on television. Unlike emergency shows of the past, viewers will live inside the calls and experience every harrowing and terrifying moment along with the caller. Every second is real.
One part thriller and one part true-crime show, “Panic 9-1-1” features the real, urgent, unrehearsed, 911 call audio in real-time between emergency dispatchers and frantic callers as life and death situations unfold around them. Each call is a race against time where the dispatcher is the caller’s only lifeline, gathering critical information from the caller to give to first responders. When literally every second counts, getting the right details is crucial. Who lives and who dies remains a mystery until the very end.
In the first episode of “Panic 9-1-1”, three separate callers struggle to protect themselves and those around them from unknown assailants determined to destroy them. Each segment in Episode 2 is a race against time as defenseless protagonists struggle to stay alive in the face of multiple threats. Episode 3 captures the terror of being on the receiving end of a gun barrel from first hand perspectives.
