From creator Shawn Ryan (“The Shield,” “The Unit”), the fast-paced series, shot on location in Chicago and starring Jason Clarke (“Public Enemies”), Jennifer Beals (Lie to Me) and Delroy Lindo (“Kidnapped”), will take audiences on an unflinching and unpredictable ride through the streets of Chicago to navigate crime and corruption with the most respected – and notorious – cops in the city.
Fox has ordered series pickups with Zooey Deschanel-starring comedy The New Girl (formerly titled Chicks and Dicks), as well as dramas Alcatraz from J.J. Abrams, Bones' spinoff The Finder, and Jaime Pressly-starring I Hate My Teenage Daughter. To make room for the new shows, Fox cancelled Breaking In, Traffic Light, The Chicago Code, Lie to Me, and sophomore Human Target.
In The New Girl, Zooey Deschanel stars as "a quirky teacher who moves in with three guys - the cynic, the player and the man-child - after being dumped." Jake M. Johnson, Max Greenfield, and Damon Wayans Jr. play the three guys; Hannah Simone also stars. No Strings Attached writer Elizabeth Meriwether created the series. Jake Kasdan (Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story) directed the single-camera pilot.Read More
