Double Episodes Premiere Thursday, November 20 at 8.30pm                                                                 

From the creator of the Law and Order franchise Dick Wolf, and the team behind Chicago Fire comes Chicago P.D., a gripping new police drama about those who put it all on the line to serve and protect. Premiering with a double episode on Thursday, November 20 at 8.30pm AEST on Universal Channel, first on Foxtel.

District 21 is made up of two distinctly different groups: the uniformed cops who patrol the beat and go head-to-head with the city’s street crimes, and the Intelligence Unit that combats the city’s major offences – organised crime, drug trafficking, high profile murders and beyond. The vast responsibilities that these jobs entail extend far beyond the walls of the precinct, often taking an emotional toll on the personal lives of these men and women.

Leading the intelligence team is Sgt. Hank Voight (Jason Beghe), a man not against skirting the law in the pursuit of justice. Demanding and tough, only those who can take the heat survive under Voight's command. Working hand in hand with Voight is Detective Antonio Dawson (Jon Seda).  More level headed and honest than his counterpart, Antonia put his reservations about Voight aside to help the Intelligence Unit track down Chicago’s most dangerous criminals while acting as a role model for the younger offices.

Rising through the ranks in the Intelligence Unit is Jay Halstead (Jesse Lee Soffer), a brash young detective who earned his spot on the team with the aid of Antonii’s endorsement. Halstead’s partner is tough, no nonsense Detective Erin Lindsay (Sophia Bush). Lindsay grew up on the street but was lifted to a better life when Voight took her in as a teenager. Halstead and Lindsay’s close working relationship may be shifting into something more personal but won’t if Voight has anything to do with it.
