On the heels of a Chicago P.D. episode that introduced an Assistant State’s Attorney (played by Revolution‘s Maureen Sebastian), NBC is eyeing a third spinoff of the Windy City franchise: Chicago Law.
Executives at the Peacock network have had early conversations with executive producer Dick Wolf about an offshot set in the legal world, our sister site Variety reports.
“We could plant the seeds for some characters [on] P.D.,” NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke told the site.
However, there is no script or writer attached to the project, which is only in the conceptual stage at this time.
Given the success of the recent three-show crossover between Fire, P.D. and Med, “It would be short-sighted…not to be, mutually, kicking the tires on what that [next spinoff] would be,” Wolf said Wednesday at the Television Critics Association winter press tour in Pasadena, confirming that the potential new series “would probably be in the legal system.”
“My instinct is always to double down, but there are many masters to serve, as always,” Wolf continued. “Would I like to do it? Of course.”
