New Drama Debuts Night After SUPER BOWL XLV

THE CHICAGO CODE (formerly titled "Ride-Along"), the distinctive new police drama from critically acclaimed creator Shawn Ryan ("The Shield"), will make its anticipated series debut Monday, Feb. 7 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. Shot on location in Chicago, THE CHICAGO CODE follows the Windy City's most powerful and respected cops as they navigate the city's underbelly to fight crime and expose corruption within Chicago's notorious political machine.

Starring Jason Clarke ("Brotherhood") and Jennifer Beals ("The L Word"), the fast-paced series centers on JAREK WYSOCKI (Clarke), a local legend and a larger-than-life veteran of the Chicago Police Department who wields considerable power thanks to his relationship with TERESA COLVIN (Beals), his ex-partner and the city's first female superintendent, now in charge of a 10,000-member police force. While Teresa diplomatically governs amidst the complicated landscape of Chicago politics, Jarek works the streets on a crusade to clean up crime and avenge his brother's murder. Along the way, they face powerful adversaries, including ALDERMAN RONIN GIBBONS (Delroy Lindo, "Kidnapped"), a building-magnate-turned-politician who has ruled his ward with a velvet glove for over two decades.

Joining Jarek on the street is CALEB EVERS (Matt Lauria, "Friday Night Lights"), an eager young detective trying desperately to prove himself. Also in Jarek's charge is his niece, VONDA WYSOCKI (Devin Kelley, "Tease"), a rookie beat copper whose father - Jarek's brother - was killed in the line of duty when she was young. Jarek keeps close tabs on her and is less than thrilled with the risk-taking ways of her cocky hotshot partner, ISAAC JOINER (Todd Williams, "CSI"). Also in the mix is low-life LIAM HENNESSEY (Billy Lush, "The Black Donnellys"), an Irish thug who blends in with the gritty world of local crime.

THE CHICAGO CODE is a production of 20th Century Fox Television and MiddKid Productions. The series is written and executive-produced by Shawn Ryan and Tim Minear ("Dollhouse"). Charles McDougall ("Big Love") also directed and executive-produced the pilot episode.
