    Default Volunteers: The Series

    Has anyone heard of this? The production company says on their website that it is a reality TV series that is coming soon. Does anyone know if this will ever air or if it will be put online? It looks like it would be a great series!

    Here is a link to the production company:

    Here is a link to the trailer:

    Looks like the video quality and camera work are a lot better than the Battalion.

    I hate how melodramatic all of these shows are. But I guess they need to get that way to get viewers.

    I don't know...I've done some research and it looks like the company is trying to get it picked up by a network.

    My fear is that they alter or manufacture some event. Kinda like throwing a rat into a snake pen to show its feeding habits.

    Show sounds promising and they early footage of it looks even better. Loved "First In" so it's great that volunteers finaly get some tv love....hopefuly a solid network like TLC,FX,Discovery or someone like that picks the series up.

    especially after seeing the one dope running in turnout gear with a halligan. "Guys I know you fight a fire like this, but can you do this, that, and that. it looks better on camera"

    Someone forgot to check the pattern. That's the problem with a camera, it sees the mistakes.
