Fox Sets Premiere Date For Shawn Ryan's The Chicago Code

Shawn Ryan’s The Chicago Code (formerly Ride-Along) will premiere on Monday, February 7, the night after Fox’s Super Bowl broadcast.

As originally announced in May, the show will air in the Monday 9/8c slot, which it was to share with the since-canceled Lone Star. Jason Clarke and Jennifer Beals star in The Chicago Code, executive produced by Ryan and Tim Minear. It follows Chicago’s most powerful and respected cops as they navigate the city’s underbelly to fight crime and expose corruption within Chicago’s notorious political machine.

By launching The Chicago Code right after the Super Bowl, Fox will certainly try use TV’s biggest promotional platform to drive viewers to the premiere the next night.
