Tacoma FD episode 6 exclusive sneak peek shows Silicon Valley star Martin Starr getting caught up in a hilarious full moon rescue
Tacoma FD, the new TV sitcom by the creators of the "Super Troopers” films, Steve Lemme and Kevin Heffernan is back with an exclusive sneak peek of Episode 6 and you wouldn't want to miss it. The show is set in “America’s rainiest city,” where firefighters don’t have many fires to extinguish and instead spend a good deal of time bringing mischief to each other.
This little teaser of the episode has a surprise for all. In the episode titled "Full Moon Fever", Tacoma FD braces for a night of insane full moon rescue calls. Plus, Eddie and Granny go on active appendage duty and Ike gets bitten into an altered state. Playing in charge of the sacrificial ritual of the super blue blood moon is Toethar starring Silicon Valley actor Martin Starr. Other guests starring in this episode are Brian Quinn, Kevin Pereira, and Will Sasso.
In the series, Heffernan plays Chief Terry McConky with Lemme as Capt. Eddie Penisi. They’re surrounded by a crew of firefighters, many sporting moustaches like the show’s creators — another import from “Super Troopers.” “Those are bumbling state troopers, and that’s something we didn’t want to do with this show because we do have respect for the firefighters and what they do,” Lemme says. “The difference was clear: It has to be about firefighters that are great at their job.” Despite the title, “Tacoma FD” was filmed entirely in and near Woodland Hills and Montebello, Calif., with exterior scenes featuring the brightness of Los Angeles’ sunlight dimmed in postproduction.
“Tacoma FD” was the most-watched new cable series of the season among 18- to 34-year-olds, according to rating data provided by TruTV. It was the No. 3 show in the 18-49 age group. The 10 episodes produced so far will air Thursdays on TruTV, part of WarnerMedia. The show pulled in 5.5 million viewers, according to Nielsen rating. The show is filmed in Southern California and is not associated with the real Tacoma Fire Department
The sixth episode of truTV’s 'Tacoma FD' premieres on Thursday, May 2 10:30 pm ET/PT.
