The new season of the Chicago PD, an NBC drama that is a spinoff of Chicago Fire, has just added Sophia Bush and Patrick Flueger as regulars on the show. Fans should remember Sophia Bush from ‘One Tree Hill’ while Patrick Flueger is form 4400. The series is yet another drama from Dick Wolf, NBC hopes to extend its stranglehold over Chicago-based series starting next year.
As of right now, Bush will play Erin Lindsay form the CPD investigative. Flueger is set to play Kyle Ruzek, the rookie on the squad that is picked by Voight (Jason Beghe). His role will be mostly undercover police-work and intelligence.
The one-hour drama centers on District 21 of the Chicago Police Department. An internal grouping of the standard uniformed officers and the Intelligence Unit make up the majority of the work done there. According to NBC, “Leading the Intelligence team is Sergeant Hank Voight, 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.”
Then you have Detective Antonio Dawson which NBC states, “despite his troubled history with his boss, Dawson has ambitions of running the unit… so if that means facing off against Voight every day, he’ll persevere.
