Chicago Sanitation Joins Dick Wolf's Empire in Funny or Die Parody

On the heels of the success of Chicago Med comes the next hit show in Dick Wolf’s franchise: Chicago Sanitation!

OK, not really — although Chicago Legal has to be in the pipeline, right? — but the following Funny or Die parody does present a pretty compelling case for why Wolf’s inevitable forthcoming spinoff should be about the people who clean the streets of the Windy City.

While the trailer is clearly a joke, full of cheeky dialogue (“You sort garbage better than anyone on this team! Why can’t you sort out your life?”) and over-the-top romance, let’s be honest: If Sanitation really starred Mad Men‘s Sam Page and Baby Daddy‘s Derek Theler, we’d all be watching it next fall.

    Chicago: The Musical: The Show!

    No, Chicago News first!

  4. Ray says:

    OMG. I made a joke about a show with this exact title appearing on NBC’s lineup at TVBTN one year ago!

  5. Dave says:

    Finally someone is seeing these Chi shows as the trash they are and making fun. Now if only viewers would stop watching.

  6. blah says:

    I’d watch a few episodes if it stared someone i liked.
    I regularly check in on Brooke Davis PD* for this very reason

    *Actual title is Chicago PD

    that was a hoot and a holler. Thanks for this it was a long day i needed a good chuckle.

  8. demographically insignificant says:

    Too funny! Kudos to the actors for delivering those lines of dialogue with a straight face!!

  9. Hmm. says:

    Say what you want about the Chicago shows but they are really well done and entertaining as hell. Dick Wolf could make Chicago Circus and it’d probably be good.

  10. Nisha D. says:

    Good parody except for the PALM TREES in several shots. Not many of those in Chicago last time I visited haha.

  11. BillyBobJohnson says:

    I’m sure they’re already writing the pitch for ‘Chicago Legal’. Firefighter, cops, doctors, lawyers. What’s next, Chicago Pizza?

  12. Joey Padron says:

    That parody video was so good and so funny. Like other Chicago shows they came up with at the end of video.

    Bout time someone, other than me, brings up the obvious choice of Chicago Legal. Although I was calling it Chicago Law, but still. Lol If another show is added, it has to be that one. It’d be nice to have another courtroom based drama. :)
