"The pairing of Rescue Me and Louie this summer will create an hour and a half of the funniest and most ruthlessly honest comedy and drama about men ever seen on commercial television," FX Networks President John Landgraf said. "We're thrilled by the quality of both these shows."
Now in production, Rescue Me's final two seasons will focus on Tommy (Denis Leary). After the upcoming season, Rescue Me will return for its final nine episodes in summer 2011. Leary and other members of the cast will also embark on their second national comedy tour, timed with the series' return.
