[VIDEO] Max Thieriot from the SEAL team previews the new Fire Country role

CBS is on the way fire land this Friday at 9/8c, headlining new drama and created by Marine Special Forces Vet Max Thieriot.

Inspired by Thieriot’s experiences growing up in Northern California, fire land Thieriot plays Bode Donovan, a young convict who seeks redemption (and a reduced sentence) by joining a prison release firefighting program. But what soil is Not expects to be stationed in his rural hometown of Edgewater, where five years earlier he (figuratively!) “burned everything in his life down” and then left with a big secret.

The cast also shines The nearer‘s Billy Burke as Cal Fire Chief Vince; LuciferKevin Alejandro as Manny, who is in charge of training the adversaries; save me‘s Diane Farr as Sharon; Black Lightningis Jordan Calloway as Jake; Penny Dreadful: City of Angels‘Stephanie Arcila as Gabriela; and Culprit’s Jules Latimer as Eve.

In the TVLine video Q&A above, Thieriot — who co-wrote the story and serves as executive producer — says it was about two-and-a-half years ago when he began serious work on turning this aspect of his Northern California upbringing into a TV series. Partly because it was so foreign to many!

Tierra del Fuego CBS“When I told a few people about the general concept, I realized how few people knew about the inmate fire service program,” says Thieriot. “Said: ,What do you mean there are prisoners fighting the fire?!”

Thieriot goes on to compare and contrast Bode Donovan and Clay Spenser Marine Special Forces Operator he has played for six seasons. “Clay is more overtly confrontational,” while “Bode is more intoxicating,” the actor suggests. “Bode went through a lot of pain in his life.”

At the 1:40 mark, Thieriot touts the various character dynamics to look out for in Fire Country, including ones he kind of compares to Sonny/Clay. We then go into how this series very convincingly ignites roaring, dynamic forest fires without leveling, you know, acres of actual nature.

“It would probably be a lot easier for us to burn down a forest!” he quips, giving credit to “our amazing VFX team” instead.

Then, at the 2:40 mark, we turn to the conversation Marine Special Forces, where Clay is now learning to live life as an amputee after losing his right leg to an RPG attack. Thieriot talks about the ups and downs for Clay as well as Clay and his wife Stella (previously summarized here).
