The Fourth Wall Podcast: Tacoma Fd Isn’t Super Troopers For Firefighters

Andrew Husband May 24, 2019

Tacoma Fd showrunners Kevin Heffernan and Steve Lemme wanted to create a new comedy that was as serious as it was silly.

Along with Jay Chandrasekhar, Paul Soter and Erik Stolhanske, Kevin Heffernan and Steve Lemme are best known for their work with the Broken Lizard comedy troupe. The group is responsible for a string of comedy films in the 2000s, like the first Super Troopers and Beerfest, that shaped American comedic sensibilities at the movies for a decade.

With their original truTV series Tacoma Fd, however, Heffernan and Lemme wanted to do something a little different. The show premiered in late March and gradually, as noted by The Hollywood Reporter, gained a niche following that has resulted in some pretty good ratings for the network. Ahead of the season finale next Thursday, the longtime friends and collaborators spoke to Den of Geek about the inspiration for the series,

Tacoma Fd: Season One Ratings

Although truTV specializes in reality programming with a comedic bent, the cable network has a small scripted comedy slate, too. Its newest entry in that category is the Tacoma Pd TV show. Will the first season of the sitcom set the Nielsen ratings afire? Will Tacoma Fd be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned.

A truTV workplace comedy, Tacoma Fd stars co-creators Kevin Heffernan and Steve Lemme, with Eugene Cordero, Marcus Henderson, Gabriel Hogan, Hassie Harrison, and Suzy Nakamura. The sitcom unfolds in a firehouse in one of the rainiest cities in the USA — Tacoma, Washington. Since Tacoma isn’t exactly a tinderbox, and these firefighters aren’t overwhelmed with blazes to battle, they keep busy with plenty of shenanigans, including creative competitions and some friendly rivalry with other area first responders.

Movie Review – Super Troopers 2 (2018)

Super Troopers 2, 2018.

Directed by Jay Chandrasekhar.

Starring Erik Stolhanske, Jay Chandrasekhar, Steve Lemme, Paul Sotor, Kevin Heffernan, Brian Cox, Marisa Coughlan, Bruce McCulloch, Lynda Carter, Rob Lowe, Hayes MacArthur, Tyler Labine, and Will Sasso.

Synopsis:

When a border dispute arises between the U.S. and Canada, the Super Troopers are tasked with establishing a Highway Patrol station in the disputed area.

During the heady days of the blockbuster, I would browse shelves aimlessly; floating freely with little care, picking up whatever I may have heard was any good, hockey…It’s the laziest possible attempt at satire, as if they picked up a Lonely Planet guide to Canada and blindly tore pages out.

The humour too is a-boot as subtle a thumb in a car door. Genitals are smacked and waxed, there are lactating men, a bear pushing a portaloo over, drug induced mania and actual Brian Cox doing karaoke.
