Chicago Law is getting ready to show off what it can be on NBC. Over the weekend, TV Series Finale reported that Philip Winchester had been cast in the lead for the new addition to the Chicago family of shows by Dick Wolf.
It was teased that Winchester would appear on an episode of Chicago PD later this season to introduce the new series.
Now, fans know a bit more about this backdoor pilot. According to Deadline, the episode of Chicago PD that will help launch Chicago Law on the network is set for episode 21 this season. Production on the episode will begin in late March. That gives Dick Wolf and his people plenty of time to cast more of Chicago Law leads.
The backdoor pilot will be directed by Jean de Segonzac. The director has worked behind the camera on several other Dick Wolf pilots, including Law & Order: SVU and Law & Order: Criminal Intent.
