Fans of Chicago PD will soon be able to see the popular series on more than just its home network.
FOX has picked up the NBC television series for syndication starting in Fall 2018. More was revealed about the deal in a press release. Check that out below.
“NBCUniversal Domestic Television Distribution has sold Chicago P.D. to FOX Television Stations; it was announced today by Sean O’Boyle, Executive Vice President of Syndication Sales, NBCUniversal Domestic Television Distribution. The show will air Monday-Friday in national syndication beginning September 2018.
The hit, one-hour dramatic television series is Dick Wolf’s second installment in the Chicago franchise. Chicago P.D. is a riveting police drama about the men and women of the Chicago Police Department’s elite Intelligence Unit. The Intelligence Unit combats the city’s most heinous offenses: organized crime, drug trafficking, high-profile murders and beyond.
Chicago P.D. is set to air Monday-Friday on local broadcast stations including FOX owned and operated stations in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, Washington D.C., Houston, Phoenix, San Francisco, Minneapolis, Orlando and Charlotte, among many others.
“We are thrilled to bring another Dick Wolf hit to the broadcast marketplace,” said O’Boyle. “Chicago P.D is a premiere procedural and is a unique opportunity for local broadcasters, as it is the only off-net scripted hour available to play as a Monday-Friday strip. This series will strengthen our partner stations’ programming schedules the same way the ‘Law & Order’ franchise has done over the years.”
Chicago P.D. was created by multiple Emmy Award winner Dick Wolf (Chicago franchise, Law & Order branded series) and Matt Olmstead (NYPD Blue, Prison Break, Chicago franchise shows) and developed by Derek Haas (Chicago Fire, 3:10 to Yuma) and Michael Brandt (Chicago franchise shows.) In addition to Wolf and Haas, executive producers include Rick Eid (Law & Order: SVU, Hostages) Peter Jankowski (Law & Order branded series, Chicago franchise shows,) Arthur Forney (Law& Order: SVU, Chicago franchise shows) and Terry Miller (Burn Notice). Chicago P.D. is produced by Wolf Entertainment in association with Universal Television and is distributed in the U.S. and Canada by NBCUniversal Domestic Television Distribution.”
