Producer Dick Wolf of "Law & Order" fame, has created his latest show, an expansion of the “Nightwatch” program, which will follow EMTs in four cities - including Yonkers - as they “risk their lives to work the busiest and most unnerving shift of the day, the overnight.” The show premieres at 10 p.m. on A&E on Aug. 16.

Over the 10 episode first season, cameras followed paramedics in Yonkers who treated an active stroke victim, overdoses and crashes in the city. There are also episodes filmed in Baton Rouge, Tucson and Austin.

“Nightwatch Nation” camera crews followed the separate Empress EMTs over a nine-week period that began in April.

According to A&E, “racing from city to city, the series follows multiple teams of brave men and women who stop at nothing to keep America safe while we sleep.”
