NBC Orders More 'Chicago P.D.'
NBC is banking on more Chicago P.D.
The Chicago Fire spinoff, which has averaged 6.8 million viewers and a 1.7 rating in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demo, has gotten two additional episodes tacked on to its rookie-season order, bringing the episode total to 15.
Chicago P.D., from executive producer Dick Wolf, centers on uniformed police patrol and the intelligence unit that pursues the perpetrators of the city's major street offenses.
The series stars Jason Beghe, whose character was introduced on Chicago Fire last season, Sophia Bush, Jon Seda, Patrick Flueger, Jesse Lee Soffer, Elias Koteas, Marina Squerciati, LaRoyce Hawkins and Archie Kao.
