Firebug: We take the same and start again

Firebug: We take the same and start again


According to Deadline, Taron Egerton and the creators of black birdthe infamous drama from Apple TV+, reunite for a new detective series on the computer giant’s streaming platform.

Entitled Firebugthe detective series will be inspired by the events around the famous Californian arsonist John Leonard Orr.

The creator of black birdstar and executive producer Dennis Lehane Egerton, along with executive producers Richard Plepler, Kary Antholis, and Imperative Entertainment’s Bradley Thomas and Dan Friedkin will team up on this Apple Original series.

A former firefighter, Orr was an arson investigator for the Glendale Fire Department in Southern California. Initially hired to understand and track down cases of arson, he himself became a serially convicted arsonist. It was discovered to be the start of a series of high-profile fires in California in the 1980s and 1990s that caused tens of millions of dollars in damage and four deaths. His nicknames were “The Pillow Pyro”, “Frito Bandito” and “The Coin Tosser”.

Orr would start his fires in the stores while they were open and bound, using a timer device in his own elaborate technique. He also lit small fires in the grassy hills, to attract firefighters, leaving unattended fires in more congested areas.


Firebug will be produced by Apple Studios and is developed, written and executive produced by Lehane alongside Egerton, former HBO boss Plepler through his Eden Productions, as well as Thomas and Friedkin. The fictional series is inspired by some of the events featured in the podcast Firebug from truth.media, which was hosted by Oscar and Emmy Award winner Antholis (One Survivor Remembers), who is an executive producer for Crime Story Media; Marc Smerling is executive producer for Truth Podcasting Corp.

Firebug is the fourth project from Apple Studios and produced by Imperative Entertainment, after Black Bird, Killers of the Flower MoonMartin Scorsese’s upcoming film starring Leonardo DiCaprio, and the recently announced Apple original film, The Wager. Egerton also recently teamed up with Apple on Tetris – The Movie.
