PRODUCER Dick Wolf's Chicago franchise – Chicago Med, Chicago Fire and Chicago P.D. – have taken over NBC's primetime television slot Wednesday nights.
The three series focus on the pillars of Chicago's emergencies response teams, including the fictional 21st Police District, the Chicago Fire Department Firehouse 51 and Gaffney Chicago Medical Center.
What is Chicago Med, Chicago Fire and Chicago P.D.?
Chicago Fire was the first installment to Wolf's Chicago franchise.
The series first premiered on NBC in October 2012.
The show explores the lives, both professional and personal, of the firefighters, rescue personnel and paramedics on the Chicago Fire Department at the fictional Firehouse 51.
Friction and division engulf the firehouse after the death of veteran Firefighter Andrew Darden, as Lieutenant Matthew Casey and Lieutenant Kelly Severide blame each other for the deal of their long-time friend and colleague.
The firehouse includes new comer Peter Mills, whose father was also a firefighter, paramedics Gabriela Dawson, Leslie Shay, Sylvie Brett and Emily Foster.
Under the leadership of 25th Battalion Chief Wallace Boden, the firehouse faces life or death decisions every day, but they treat each other like family, looking out for each other no matter what happens.
Chicago P.D. premiered as a mid-season replacement to Chicago Fire in January 2014.
The show follows the uniformed patrol officers and the Intelligence Unit of the 21st District of the Chicago Police Department as they pursue the city's criminals
"Chicago P.D. is a riveting police drama about the men and women of the Chicago Police Department's elite Intelligence Unit, combatting the city's most heinous offense – organized crime, drug trafficking, high-profile murders and beyond," NBC explains about the show.
"At the center of 'Chicago P.D.' is Det. Sgt. Hank Voight, who is at ground zero against the war on crime in Chicago. He will do anything to bring criminals to justice."
Chicago Med is the third installment to the Chicago franchise, first airing on NBA in November 2015.
This series focuses on the emergency department at Gaffney Chicago Medical Center and its doctors and nurses as they work to save patients' lives.
Often times the show crosses over with characters from both Chicago Fire and Chicago P.D.
