Boomtown premiered on NBC on September 29, 2002. Forget the Hollywood hype. Ignore the sunny fa?ade. Step onto the real streets of Los Angeles with the cops and paramedics who roam them. Emmy-winning writer Graham Yost ( From The Earth to The Moon, Band of Brothers) creates a life-and-death beat filled with characters as diverse and thrilling as the City of Angels. In addition to a philandering District Attorney and his lover, an ambitious local reporter, are L.A.'s unsung heroes: Detectives Fearless and Joel, cops Turcotte and Hechler, and medic Theresa. The action (and there's plenty) unravels backwards and forwards, "Pulp Fiction" style, with each new time frame offering a fresh perspective on both sides of the law and unique insight into what makes these people - and this city - tick.
