NBC may do a 'Chicago Fire' spinoff
NBC's Pretty People Fighting Fires drama "Chicago Fire" has been a moderate success for the network, so it isn't surprising that NBC is contemplating a spinoff.
According to Deadline.com, a police-centric "Chicago Fire" planted spinoff is being developed by series creators Derek Haas and Michael Brandt, executive producer Matt Olmstead and executive producer Dick Wolf. The premise -- Pretty People Fighting Crime, we suspect? -- would be built into the season finale, which will be directed by Joe Chappelle.
It's unclear which "Chicago Fire" actors, if any, will be a part of the spinoff, though Jon Seda has had a recurring role as a detective this season.
While it may not get the publicity of a "Revolution," "Chicago Fire" has been a solid enough performer for NBC that the network ordered a standard back-nine and then extended the order twice for a 24-episode first season.
