In my first novel, On The Edge, written 27 years ago, there is a fictional broadcast television show called 911 Live, featuring barely filtered live shots from first responders’ bodycams in ten cities across the nation.

Janet Sullivan, the protagonist’s wife, is an executive at a local TV station and has to decide whether her station should carry the network show, leading her to make some tough choices.

Now a nearly identical version of the show is real. It’s called First Responders Live and is on the Fox Broadcast Network.
