New Dick Wolf series about Chicago Fire Department written by "3:10 to Yuma" team
NBC has ordered a double dose of Dick Wolf.
The network has given Wolf's new drama "Chicago Fire" a full season order, and renewed Wolf's long-running police procedural "Law & Order: SVU" for a 14th season.
"Chicago Fire," which Wolf is producing, stars Taylor Kinney, Monica Raymund and Charlie Barnett, is an "action-driven drama exploring the complex and heroic men and women of the Chicago Fire Department." Derek Haas and Michael Brandt ("3:10 to Yuma") wrote the pilot and also produce, along with Danielle Gelber, Peter Jankowski and Jeffrey Nachmanoff, who directed the pilot.
"Law & Order," meanwhile, saw a shakeup last year that included the departure of long-standing star Chris Meloni. The current season of the series has struggled in the ratings.
Both series are from Wolf Films and Universal Television.
