A Chicago police drama series is being considered as a spinoff series from Chicago Fire — NBC’s successful series that is in its first season with 24 episodes. The new Chicago Police drama series would be introduced in the the final episode of Season One of Chicago Fire.

There’s word out that the Chicago Police drama is being developed by Chicago Fire creators/executive producers Derek Haas and Michael Brandt, executive producer Matt Olmstead and executive producer Dick Wolf, whose company Wolf Films produces Chicago Fire with Universal TV. The spinoff episode may be written by film director, writer, and producer Joe Chappelle. Chappelle graduated from Northwestern University with a Master of Fine Arts in Film and worked in Chicago’s advertising community before switching to film and television.

Some Chicago Fire actors may transfer to the Chicago police drama.

Wolf Films’ Peter Jankowski and Danielle Gelber are also involved in the production of Chicago Fire.
