A&E NETWORK ORDERS 10 ADDITIONAL EPISODES OF HIT NEW SERIES "LIVE RESCUE" FROM BIG FISH ENTERTAINMENT

WEEKLY LIVE SERIES FOLLOWING FIRST RESPONDERS IN REAL TIME AIRS MONDAYS AT 9PM ET/PT

NEW YORK, NY - June 12, 2019 - A&E is extending the new hit series "Live Rescue," with 10 additional episodes, bringing the first season total to 19 episodes. "Live Rescue," the network's newest live original documentary series, follows first responders from across the country as they bravely put their lives on the line responding to emergency rescue calls. Hosted by veteran journalist Ashleigh Banfield with analysis from first responders representing departments across the country, "Live Rescue" is produced by the producers of "Live PD," Big Fish Entertainment, an MGM Company. New episodes continue Monday nights from 9-11pm ET/PT.

"Live Rescue" was A&E's best series premiere in more than two years. Since its April 22nd debut, 'Live Rescue' is averaging 1.3 million total viewers. It has out-performed A&E's regular Monday time period by 150% with total viewers.

"The initial response by viewers to 'Live Rescue' has been extremely rewarding," said Elaine Frontain Bryant, Executive Vice President & Head of Programming, A&E Network. "This is a challenging show to produce, but our incredible partners at Big Fish have once again made it possible for viewers across the country to see the work of first responders and the challenges they face every day in real-time through this groundbreaking series."

"Live Rescue" is the second live franchise from A&E and Big Fish Entertainment, after the smash hit "Live PD," which follows diverse law enforcement agencies across the country as they patrol their communities. "Live PD" is cable's #1 justice series and the #1 show on cable on Friday and Saturday nights.

"Live Rescue" is produced by Big Fish Entertainment, an MGM Company, with Dan Cesareo, Lucilla D'Agostino, John Zito, and Jordana Starr serving as Executive Producers. Elaine Frontain Bryant, Shelly Tatro, and Sean Gottlieb are Executive Producers for A&E.
