As anticipated, NBC is keeping the Chicago Fire burning with Chicago PD, a police-oriented spin-off of its successful freshman drama.
The cast includes ChiFi‘s Jason Beghe (pictured) and Jon Seda (reprising their roles as Sergeant Hank Voight and Detective Antonio Dawson), Clint Eastwood’s actor-son Scott (Texas Chainsaw 3D) and Lost alum Tania Raymonde.
The official logline for the offshoot reads: “District 21 of the Chicago Police Department is made up of two distinctly different groups. There are the uniformed cops who patrol the beat and go head to head with the city’s street crimes. And there’s the Intelligence Unit” — led by Voight — “that combats the city’s major offenses – organized crime, drug trafficking, high profile murders and beyond.”
Will you be tuning in for Chicago PD? Or is a spin-off a tad premature?
