  THE CHICAGO CODE was a wonderful, unconventional police drama, created by Shawn Ryan, which ran its full thirteen-episode arc this year on Fox and then was canceled. Tim Minear, one of the show’s executive producers/writers who worked with Ryan last year on FX’s arguably even more wonderful TERRIERS, gives us an exit interview on CODE about how it worked and where it might have gone had it lasted another season. ASSIGNMENT X: How far ahead of the final episode airing did you know that CHICAGO CODE was not coming back? MINEAR: We didn’t really know officially until around the […]Read On »

Stars: Delroy Lindo, Billy Lush, Matt Lauria, Jennifer Beals, Jason Clarke, Devin Kelley and Todd Williams Writer: Shawn Ryan, Director: Lesli Linka Glatter Network: Fox, airs Monday nights Original Telecast: May 23, 2011 With the news last week that THE CHICAGO CODE was canceled, it didn’t bode well for how the season and now series final “Mike Royko’s Revenge” was going to wrap up. Would it be a cliffhanger or would everything get tied up in a neat little bow? Were the producers prepared for a conclusion in the off-chance it didn’t get renewed? And strangely, it ended, exactly how […]Read On »

On Fox’s THE CHICAGO CODE, which has its series finale tonight at 9 PM, a group of police officers under the direction of Police Commissioner Colvin (Jennifer Beals) are trying to take down corrupt Alderman Gibbons (Delroy Lindo), while other beat cops, unaware of the operation, go about the daily business of stopping crime.

Exclusive Interview: THE CHICAGO CODE doesn’t silence actor Jason Clarke

Jason Clarke has been so good at playing conflicted Rhode Island politician Tommy Caffee on three seasons of Showtime’s crime drama BROTHERHOOD, and now Chicago-born police detective Jarek Wysocki on Fox’s THE CHICAGO CODE, which has its series finale tonight at 9 PM, that people may be surprised to learn the actor is actually Australian (this may come as less of a surprise to viewers who know Clarke as Jenek from FARSCAPE.) In a soft, lilting accent very unlike Wysocki’s tough tones, Clarke talks about his time filming CODE in Chicago, including some startling incidents that he observed while doing […]Read On »

Stars: Delroy Lindo, Billy Lush, Matt Lauria, Jennifer Beals, Jason Clarke, Devin Kelley and Todd Williams Writer: Virgil Williams Director: Paris Barclay Network: Fox, airs Monday nights Original Telecast: May 16, 2011 As much as the networks are loath (or maybe that’s terrified) to embrace serialized TV series (preferring the more repeatable standalone procedurals), there’s something to be said for shows with ongoing arcs. Case is in point is the recently canceled THE CHICAGO CODE and its penultimate episode “Greylord and Gambat.” Unlike many of the episodes that followed a specific crime which usually had some peripheral tie to our […]Read On »

Stars: Delroy Lindo, Billy Lush, Matt Lauria, Jennifer Beals, Jason Clarke, Devin Kelley and Todd Williams Writer: Heather Mitchell & Kevin Townsley Director: Michael Offer Network: Fox, airs Monday nights Original Telecast: May 9, 2011 There have only been a couple of episodes of THE CHICAGO CODE that haven’t lived up to the show’s enormous potential, and sadly “Black Sox” is one of them. The police procedural elements, usually so dead-on perfect and engaging prove to be unspectacular, while all the ongoing personal drama keeps this episode from going completely to the dogs. The story begins with a hate crime […]Read On »
