Fire Country Plot
The official logline states, “Seeking redemption and a shortened prison sentence, young convict Bode Donovan joins a firefighting program that returns him to his small Northern California hometown, where he and other inmates work alongside elite firefighters to extinguish massive blazes across the region. Inspired by Max Thieriot’s experiences growing up in northern California fire country.”
Moreover, according to the CBS website, the plot of the series follows, Bad choices don’t make a bad man. At least that’s what Bode Donavan’s been told. Midway through a five-year prison stretch, he’s been trying to convince himself of it, too. He gets the chance to prove it, signing on to an unconventional prison-release program: in exchange for reduced sentences, convicts are paired with firefighters battling Northern California wildfires. The heat is turned up when Bode’s assigned to the program in his rural hometown, the place where all his troubles began.
Fire Country Cast and Crew
The main cast members of the series are Max Thieriot as Bode Donovan; Billy Burke as Vince; Kevin Alejandro as Manny Robles; Diane Farr as Cheryl; Jordan Calloway as Jake; Stephanie Arcila as Arabella Robles; and Jules Latimer as Everly.
Thieriot, Phelan, and Rater executive produce alongside Jerry Bruckheimer, Jonathan Littman, and KristieAnne Reed for Jerry Bruckheimer Television. CBS Studios is the studio. Napolitano, who recently served as executive producer and showrunner on Freeform’s Cruel Summer, is repped by CAA and Michael Auerbach at Jackoway.
