As noted earlier, Kurt Angle has signed on for a lead role in a pilot for a drama titled "Emergency: LA." Angle would be playing LAPD Sgt. Gabe Mandell. Former WWE and TNA star Katarina Waters (Katie Lea, Winter) also has a role in the pilot. Ultra HD TV first reported about the new show last January.

The pilot will be filmed shortly and then shopped to networks to be potentially picked up. Former UK wrestling promoter Len Davies is writing, directing and producing.

The description of the pilot reads like this: "Emergency:LA revolves around the Fictional Emergency services based out of Station 77 of the LA City Fire Department, Downtown LA district of the LAPD and the Emergency Hospital treatment center Trauma One. The series will focus on the day to day activities, rescues, investigations and treatments, that take place in the respective environments as well as the personal lives of the characters that inhabit them."
