Chicago Law Retains Philip Winchester

Philip Winchester is once again a player at NBC.

The actor has closed a deal to star in Chicago Law, the latest tentacle of NBC’s exploding Windy City-set franchise, Deadline reports.

The proposed spinoff, the seeds of which were planted in a recent episode of Chicago P.D., is slated to launch sometime next season.

Winchester is coming off of NBC’s short-lived drama The Player. He’s also being eyed to star in a big-screen continuation of his late Cinemax series Strike Back.
