Below are series that NBC is picking up for the 2013-14 season (via NBC's press release):
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, the team that combats the city's
major offenses - organized crime, drug traffi cking, high profile murders and beyond.
Leading the Intelligence team is Sergeant Hank Voight (Jason Beghe), a man not against skirting the
law in the pursuit of justice. Demanding and tough, only those who can take the heat
survive under Voight's command. Take Detective Antonio Dawson (Jon Seda) - despite his troubled
history with his boss, Dawson has ambitions of running the unit... so if that means facing
off against Voight every day, he'll persevere. From the street cops with dreams of moving up to the elite crew who are already in, "life
on the job" is a daily challenge. The enormous responsibilities that come with the territory
take an emotional toll, as we'll f nd when we follow the personal lives of our characters
outside the walls of District 21.
From Emmy(R)-winning producer Dick Wolf and the team behind "Chicago Fire" comes
Chicago PD, a gripping, character-driven new police drama about those who put it all
on the line to serve and protect.
