Co-creator John Wells had wanted to do a show about paramedics for some time before Third Watch began, but did not think he had enough material to make such a show. Ed Bernero, a former Chicago cop, had wanted to do a police drama partly based on his own experiences. The two worked together on the short lived show Trinity, and after cancellation Wells asked Bernero if he wanted to co-create a show with him. Third Watch was a combination of Wells' paramedics show and Bernero's police show.
Originally the show was only going to be about the police and paramedics, but firefighter Jimmy Doherty was added to the show after actor Eddie Cibrian auditioned for the role of police officer Maurice 'Bosco' Boscorelli. Cibrian lost out to Jason Wiles, but impressed the producers so much that they decided to put him in the show as a new character. Bernero said, "Well, we don't have any firefighters", and the fire aspect of the show was added in to produce a show revolving around all 3 emergency services.
