Chicago Justice Monica Barbaro

Chicago Justice Adds UnREAL's 'Hot Rachel,' Monica Barbaro

The fourth world in Dick Wolf’s #OneChicago-verse, Chicago Justice, has added Monica Barbarao aka UnREAL‘s Yael/”Hot Rachel” as a series regular.

Premiering at midseason, 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.

Per our sister site Deadline, Barbara will play a whip-smart, quick-tongued Assistant State’s Attorney who can — wait for it — “drink beers with the boys or take a night out at the opera.”

The Chicago P.D. offshoot’s cast also includes Philip Winchester (Strike Back), Carl Weathers (Colony), Joelle Carter (Justified) and Ryan-James Hatanaka, while Law & Order vet Michael S. Chernuchin will serve as showrunner. (Nazneen Contractor, who played a different ASA in the backdoor pilot, is not continuing with the series.)

In addition to her UnREAL run, Barbaro’s TV credits include episodes of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Hawaii Five-0 and Stitchers.

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    Oh wow Chicago Justice is a real thing? So that’s what, the fourth Chicago show? They ever think having a show not from that dude, you know, for the novelty? It’s kinda worse than ABC and those Shonda Rhimes shows
