Disney’s Freeform is currently in the early stages of development on a new drama series called “RUSH”, which revolves around four high-school students who join RUSH — a teenage first-responder program that exists nationally, and internationally. These young heroes work side-by-side with adult firefighters and EMTs, in real life-or-death emergencies. All while juggling their school work, home lives, and romantic entanglements. Our young heroes may find that by saving others, they may be able to save themselves.
According to Deadline, “RUSH”, the show is based on an Israeli series “, The Station”, by Shahar Segall and Oren Jacobi, who will both be executive producers on the show. The pair grew up together in Long Island and became RUSH volunteers. The success of the series in Israel also led to increased enrollment in Israel’s RUSH programs.
This new series is being written by Royal Pains co-creator Andrew Lenchewski and Kevin O’Hare and will be directed by Alexis Ostrander, who has previously worked on “Mayfair Witches”. All three of them will be executive producers, along with Trevor Engelson, Hadas Mozes, Rinat Klien, Yaron Lichtenstein, Scooter Braun, James Shin and Scott Manson.
With the series still in early development, eventually, if it does get made, expect to see it released on Hulu in the United States and on Disney+ internationally as a Star Original.
