SAVED � �Tango�
Directed by John Coles, Written by Ann Hamilton
The paramedics at Lifeshield are increasingly on edge as Wyatt Cole (Scott) and his paramedic partner John �Sack� Hallon (Omari Hardwick � Beauty Shop, Sucker Free City) prepare to testify at a deposition for a lawsuit that could end the careers of everyone involved. If nothing else, the lawsuit is certainly driving a wedge between Wyatt and Sack, leading one of them to consider employment elsewhere.
SAVED comes to TNT from Fox 21, Imagine Television and Sarabande Productions, with Sarabande�s David Manson (Nothing Sacred, Thief) and Imagine�s David Nevins (Arrested Development) serving as executive producers.
