NBC’s short-lived Chicago PD spin-off Chicago Justice will premiere on 5USA on Thursday January 11th at 9pm, it has been announced.
From Dick Wolf and Universal Television, Chicago Justice follows the State’s Attorney’s dedicated team of prosecutors and investigators as they 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, Strike Back), 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 (Michael Moriarty, Law & Order), Peter is shooting at a target that only he can see. This often puts him in direct conflict with Mark Jefferies (Carl Weathers, Rocky), the Cook County State’s Attorney who sees the world through a political lens.
The team also includes Assistant State’s Attorney Anna Valdez (Monica Barbaro, UnREAL), a passionate newcomer, who’s more flexible and willing to bend the rules to get the right result; Laura Nagel (Joelle Carter, Justified), a tough-as-nails State’s Attorney Investigator who sees each case through the eyes of the victim; and Antonio Dawson (Jon Seda, formerly on Chicago PD), a level-headed and by-the-book detective turned Chief Investigator.
