TV briefs: 'Sirens'

The Fresno BeeJune 20, 2014 

Another call to duty: The USA Network has ordered a 13-episode Season Two of the original, half-hour comedy series "Sirens" from executive producers Denis Leary ("Rescue Me") and Bob Fisher ("Wedding Crashers"). The series, starring Michael Mosley, Kevin Daniels, Kevin Bigley, Jessica McNamee and Josh Segarra, follows a group of Chicago's best EMTs who are rock stars professionally, but struggle to keep their personal lives in order.

More lies: ABC Family has ordered two seasons of its longest- running original hit series, "Pretty Little Liars." Season six is set to air mid-2015, and season seven is set to air mid-2016.

"Pretty Little Liars" holds the record as the most-tweeted scripted- series telecast of all time, and across all genres, it holds seven of the Top 15 most-tweeted series telecasts ever.

The show also generated the highest average number of tweets per episode (675,000) of any TV series during the 2013-14 broadcast season.

A royal pain: Just a hop, skip and a jump away from the throne, siblings Georgie (Ed Gamble) and Poppy Carlton (Amy Hoggart) were born into a life of privilege, splendor and royalty ... almost.

BBC America's first original comedy series, "Almost Royal," follows the two young British aristocrats as they venture outside the palace and across the pond on their first trip to the U.S., where they interact with real-life, unsuspecting everyday Americans. The half-hour comedy series premieres with back-to-back episodes at 10 p.m. today following the "Orphan Black" Season Two finale.

Get your motor running: "Fat 'n' Furious," premiering at 10 p.m. Monday on the Discovery Channel, follows the antics of the large-and-in-charge car junkies of Christmas Automotive as they boost business by hunting down left-for-dead cars and bringing them back to life.
