The Chicago Code Winter TCA Info, Quotes, and Pics

Why The Chicago Code Will Be a "Different Type of Cop Show"

I'm reporting from the Winter TCA to bring you news on all the midseason TV, and new Fox drama The Chicago Code was the next to make its case. Stars of the show Jason Clarke, Jennifer Beals, Delroy Lindo, and Matt Lauria were accompanied by showrunners to talk about the police series and what we can expect.

  • Series creator Shawn Ryan (who was also behind another cop drama, The Shield) said that he wanted a police show that made the viewer feel "as if they were in the police car with the cops." He adds that the show will be "about a lot more than just police officers, politics, and its citizenry." Indeed, there's a big focus on police corruption, embodied by Lindo's character, crooked politician Ronin Gibbons. Despite that, Lindo says that Gibbons is "not a bad person."
  • Beals faces a challenge in playing tough female superintendent Teresa Colvin, in that she has to find a balance between "what is feminine leadership and what is masculine leadership" when her character is leading 10,000 men in the Chicago police force. What interested Beals most about the character was "not only her strength but her fragility in the position she's in."
  • Australian actor and star Clarke has been hard at work adopting not just an American accent, but a Chicago accent at that. He said he's practiced by "hanging out with Shawn, playing a bit of Guitar Hero, and [going on] ride-alongs with cops." Using an accent for a role, he says, is "like putting on your wardrobe."
