Description

Chicago Fire is an American television drama series created by Michael Brandt and Derek Haas and produced by Law & Order creator Dick Wolf which follows the lives of the firefighters and paramedics working at the Chicago Fire Department at the firehouse of Engine 51, Truck 81, Squad 3, Medic 61 and Battalion 25.

From renowned, Emmy Award-winning executive producer Dick Wolf (Law & Order brand) and creators Derek Haas and Michael Brandt, the writing team behind 3:10 to Yuma, comes the high-octane drama Chicago Fire - an edge-of-your-seat view into the lives of everyday heroes committed to one of America's noblest professions.

For the firefighters, rescue squad and paramedics of Chicago Firehouse 51, no occupation is more stressful or dangerous, yet so rewarding and exhilarating.

These courageous men and women are among the elite who forge headfirst into danger when everyone else is running the other way and whose actions make the difference between life and death.

The pressure to perform on such a high level has a way of taking a personal toll, sometimes putting team members from the Truck and the specially trained Rescue Squad at odds with each other.

Despite any differences, this is an extended family, and when it's go time, everyone inside Firehouse 51 knows no other way than to lay it all on the line for each other.

When a tragedy claims one of their own, there's plenty of guilt and blame to go around. Lt. Matthew Casey (Jesse Spencer), in charge of the Truck, tries to carry on, but butts heads with the brash Lt. Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney) of the Rescue Squad - and each blames the other for their fallen team member.

Adding to the turmoil, Casey, unbeknownst to his colleagues, is in the midst of a separation from Hallie (Teri Reeves).

The firehouse also includes Battalion Chief Wallace Boden (Eamonn Walker), a fireman's fireman who is confronted by important personal decisions, paramedics Gabriela Dawson (Monica Raymund) and Leslie Shay (Lauren German), who share a close bond and team together to face some of the most harrowing situations imaginable, Peter Mills (Charlie Barnett), an academy graduate who is the latest generation in a family of firefighters, and Christopher Herrmann (David Eigenberg), a seasoned veteran who loses his home to foreclosure and now must uproot his family to move in with his in-laws.

In addition to Wolf, Haas and Brandt, executive producers also include Matt Olmstead (Breakout Kings), Joe Chappelle (The Wire), Danielle Gelber and Peter Jankowski (Law & Order brand). Haas and Brandt wrote the pilot, which was directed by Jeffrey Nachmanoff (Homeland).

Chicago Fire is produced by Universal Television and Wolf Films.
