Casting

 

Please note that the show is only considering Chicago area talent who are available to work  on set shortly.   Please see the details below for submission information and availability requirements.

The show comes from Emmy-winning producer Dick Wolf who is also behind other popular police dramas such as the “Law & Order” series of shows.  The show premiered in 2014 and is going into it’s 6th year.

 

District 21 of the Chicago Police Department is composed of the uniformed cops, who deal with street crimes, and the Intelligence Unit, which deals with major crimes like drug trafficking and high-profile murders. Sgt Hank Voight – a tough boss who doesn’t mind bending the rules a little in the pursuit of justice – heads the unit’s elite team. The responsibilities of life on the force take a toll on the officers, as they struggle to balance their personal lives with the strain of the job.
