TV show description:
The fourth series in Dick Wolf’s Chicago franchise, the Chicago Justice TV show follows the prosecutors and investigators who make up the State’s Attorney’s team. In order to pursue justice, these professionals must negotiate the choppy waters of city politics.
Armed with a resolute respect for the law, they work the Windy City’s most consequential cases. Often under intense media scrutiny, the team must be mindful of both prevailing community sentiment and political power grabs.
The ambitious Peter Stone (Philip Winchester) is the dogged Deputy Chief of the Special Prosecutions Bureau. To him, the quest for justice is more than a job; it’s a purpose.
A single-minded man, Stone often goes head-to-head with Mark Jefferies (Carl Weathers). As Cook County State’s Attorney, Mark must be politically minded. While his mantra is that a good prosecutor gives the jury and the public a well-defined narrative, Peter believes the law is not always best served by crisp sound bites.
Despite their differences, Stone and Jefferies aspire to usher in a new age of justice to the City by the Lake. Their team includes the ardent Assistant State’s Attorney, Anna Valdez (Monica Barbaro). Still new enough to be malleable, Anna will bend the rules to get the proper results.
There’s also the tenacious Laura Nagel (Joelle Carter). This empathetic State’s Attorney Investigator looks at her cases through the victims’ eyes.
Finally, there is Chief Investigator Antonio Dawson (Jon Seda). A former by-the-book detective in the Chicago P.D.’s intelligence unit, Antonio worked his way up to the State’s Attorney’s office.
