No matter the crisis, every victim needs some justice.
In the new trailer for NBC’s latest One Chicago installment, we get a look at the world of Chicago Justice, which follows the city’s State Attorney’s office as they fight for justice that victims so desperately need and deserve.
A backdoor pilot for the series dropped last season on Chicago P.D., which gave us a taste of the drama that seemingly connects all of the shows even more than previously thought possible. Chicago Justice will also feature one of Chicago P.D.‘s detectives, Antonio Dawson, who makes the move from detective to lead investigator for the State Attorney’s office and the switch from P.D. to Justice.
Watch the new trailer for Chicago Justice below and prepare for the next great One Chicago drama that’s sure to leave us begging for more!
Powerhouse creator Dick Wolf delivers a captivating new installment to the hit Chicago franchise. Just like their brethren in the Chicago P.D., the State’s Attorney’s dedicated team of prosecutors and investigators navigate heated city politics and controversy head-on, while fearlessly pursuing justice. As they take on the city’s high-stakes and often media-frenzied cases, they must balance public opinion, power struggles within the system and their unwavering passion for the law.
At the center of the show is prosecutor Peter Stone (Philip Winchester), the ambitious Deputy Chief of the Special Prosecutions Bureau. Relentless in his quest for justice, it’s more than a job, it’s a purpose. Son of renowned New York City District Attorney Ben Stone (from “Law & Order”), Stone is shooting at a target that only he can see. This often puts him in direct conflict with Mark Jefferies (Carl Weathers), the Cook County State’s Attorney who sees the world through a political prism. While Jefferies believes that a good prosecutor gives the jury and the public a clear, clean and digestible narrative, Stone is convinced the law isn’t always best served in a sound bite. Together with their team, Stone and Jefferies strive to bring some much-needed justice to the city of Chicago.
The team also includes Assistant State’s Attorney Anna Valdez (Monica Barbaro), a passionate newcomer, who’s more flexible and willing to bend the rules to get the right result; Laura Nagel (Joelle Carter), a tough-as-nails State’s Attorney Investigator that sees each case through the eyes of the victim; and Antonio Dawson (Jon Seda, formerly on “Chicago P.D.”), a level-headed and by-the-book detective turned Chief Investigator.
Chicago Justice premieres Sunday, March 5 at 9/8c on NBC.
