Dolph Lundgren to Star in TV Show About Lifeguards

Dolph Lundgren is headed to television. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the actor is set to star in a new series about lifeguards next year, titled Rescue 3. But wait, could this possibly be the second coming of 90's staple, Baywatch? Not quite - the hour-long show will reportedly center around a Southern California "elite multi-agency task force" made up of lifeguards, firefighters and coast guard agencies, but it'll be more about the action than the drama. Each episode is set to follow a rescue that involves all three of agencies that make up the task force, hence the title.

As for Lundgren's role, he will portray Captain John Matthews, a "career firefighter and lifeguard who leads a specialized unit comprised of experts in air, fire and water rescue." He'll also be a "reluctant hero," so that means he'll probably be a tortured soul or something as well. 

The series will definitely has been given a two-year order for a guaranteed 104 weeks on television by Tribune Broadcasting, and the first season will be made up of 20 episodes.
