THE CHICAGO CODE’s Jennifer Beals Teases Teresa’s Fight Against Gibbons

May 9, 2011 by Marisa Roffman  





With just one week until Fox decides what its 2011-2012 schedule will look like, if you’ve been meaning to tune into THE CHICAGO CODE, now is the time.

Why should you be tuning in? Series star Jennifer Beals (Teresa) has a good reason for the remaining doubters out there.

“I just think that the story [and] the writing is really fantastic,” she told me earlier today. “It’s fast and it’s smart and you cover the whole spectrum of action and intelligence and I don’t think you get that often on many shows that air on television today.”

Beals speaks the truth. So what’s going on in tonight’s episode for Teresa?

“Teresa is boxed in a corner and she has to figure out a way to get herself out of Gibbons’ box,” Beals teased. “In these last few episodes, we really play out [their dynamic] at warp speed. This episode starts it off and the last few just go like a bullet train. Tonight is seeing what kind of game Teresa can have to deal with the situation.”

A game?

“In the beginning, she feels like she has no moves that she can make,” she explained. “She’s looking at the chess board and going, ‘There’s nothing I can do.’ And then she finds a little hole to squeeze through. I think that she’s realizing she has lots of different cards to play that she didn’t necessarily see before.”

And while Jarek is still Teresa’s main ally in the fight against Gibbons, Beals teased that her character will be branching out in the remaining episodes.

“She’s starting to learn to extend herself beyond the CPD,” Beals noted. “Because Chicago is all about power. It is a city in love with power the way Washington is in love with power. People play that out through personal and city politics and the two come together quite often. And I think she’s learning to work outside the police department. I think she understands politics outside of the police department, but it’s parlaying that knowledge into a bigger arena.”

parece que la audiencia del episodio emitido el lunes ha subido con casi un 6% con respecto al anterior según diferentes artículos que dicen:

ABC's Dancing With the Stars (4.1/11) was down 9% from last week, while Castle (3.1/8) was up 7%. Castle was joined in the plus ratings column by Fox's The Chicago Code (1.7/4, up 6%). Its lead-in, freshly renewed House (2.9/9) was flat, tying last week's season low.
'''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''
Fox placed a distant second, with House (7.8 million, 2.9) flat from its previous original and freshman drama The Chicago Code (5.7 million, 1.7) up 6 percent. Fox just renewed House for an eighth season, after talks between the studio and network were prolonged; the fate of Code, however, is up in the air.

When Fox attacks: Network cancels 'Human Target,' 'Chicago Code,' 'Lie to Me,'
moreby James Hibberd
Categories: Television, TV Biz

UPDATED: Fox is brutally clear-cutting under-performing shows from its lineup, cancelling three four five series tonight in order to make room for new shows next fall: Human Target was shot down for a third season, Christian Slater is now 0 for 3 as a TV series lead because Breaking In was dumped, The Chicago Code and Lie to Me were just taken out and Traffic Light was switched off. The moves represent an aggressive stance by Fox, which is declining to sink any further investment in modestly performing titles and opting to gamble on fresh shows instead.

Human Target was finally axed after undergoing a trip back to the drawing board. Though the show was considerably revamped for this season, the actioner struggled to gain ground in the ratings. Target averaged 7.6 million viewers and a 2.2 rating in adults 18-49 this season, including DVR use, but was down from its first season average of 2.9. Lie to Me is also gone — it averaged exactly the same as Target, and dropped the same amount from last season.

Fox also pink-slipped Breaking In, the freshman comedy about a security team that starred Slater. The show averaged a healthy 2.9 in the ratings due to a strong premiere, but more recent episodes fell off considerably despite following American Idol.

Fellow post-Idol freshman straggler Traffic Light is also gone.

And bummer for Jennifer Beals: Her freshman cop drama The Chicago Code was also cancelled.

Creator Shawn Ryan retweeted the news and wrote: “Dammit.”


The cancellations come on the heels of Fox giving a series orders to Bones spin-off The Finder and to J.J. Abrams’ new prison mystery drama Alcatraz. The network also picked up two new comedies starring Zooey Deschanel and Jaime Pressly.

Exclusive: FOX cancels 'The Chicago Code'
By Alan Sepinwall - Shawn Ryan-produced cop drama one of several FOX series to get the axe Tuesday night
Tuesday, May 10, 2011 11:00 PM




It's been a very busy night for FOX, which, according to various published reports, has already ordered several new shows for its fall schedule, including the JJ Abrams-produced "Alcatraz," the "Bones" spin-off "The Finder" and the Zooey Deschanel sitcom "The New Girl," while also deciding that "Human Target" and "Breaking In" won't be back on next year's schedule. Given all the action, and given that "The Chicago Code" was on the renewal bubble right along with "Human Target" and several other series, I thought I'd check in with that show's creator, Shawn Ryan, to see what he was hearing.

Ryan told me he had just heard from FOX entertainment president Kevin Reilly, who told him the show was also canceled. (As in it won't be on next year's schedule; the final episodes will air.)

The ratings for "Chicago Code" had never been especially strong, and with so many high-profile pilots in development, on top of pre-existing commitments for next fall for "Terra Nova" and "The X Factor," there wasn't going to be a lot of real estate on next year's schedule. At best, one of "Human Target," "Chicago Code" and "Lie to Me" were going to get picked up. Now, at least 2 out of those 3 have been removed from the equation.

I wrote in my review of last night's episode that the show had a lot of good raw material that it didn't quite know what to do with yet, but that I was hopeful Ryan - who already had FX's "Terriers" canceled out from under him this season - and company would figure out how to make it work by the time a second season started. Instead, no second season, and the show will likely end as a big ball of unrealized potential.

3RD UPDATE: Fox Cancels Comedies 'Breaking In' & 'Traffic Light' And Dramas 'Lie To Me', 'Human Target' & 'Chicago Code'
By NELLIE ANDREEVA | Tuesday May 10, 2011 @ 7:26pm

UPDATED: Fringe got lucky to score an early renewal because no other bubble show got a reprieve at Fox. The network tonight axed all others: the Tim Roth-starring procedural Lie To Me, sophomore drama Human Target and freshmen The Chicago Code, Traffic Light and Breaking In. That is in contrast with last May, when it renewed all three of its bubble dramas, Lie To Me, Human Target and Fringe. While Human Target and Lie To Me had been long shots after soft second- and third-season runs and Chicago Code and Traffic Light's fate had been sealed for a while, especially with Chicago Code creator Shawn Ryan moving from 20th TV to Sony, the yanking of Breaking In was very surprising as the comedy launched strong behind American Idol, posting Fox's highest ratings for live-action comedy series in three years. It has since slipped but was considered a solid contender for renewal as it had shown promise and had done much better than two other freshman live-action Fox comedies, Traffic Light and Running Wilde. Breaking In beat the odds once, when Fox passed on the pilot last season, before getting resurrected with a midseason order. But its luck ran out. And so the Christian Slater curse continues ...

Q&A: Jennifer Beals talks 'The Chicago Code'
Wednesday, May 11 2011, 15:46 BST
By Alex Fletcher, TV Editor




Shawn Ryan (Lie To Me, The Shield) cop series The Chicago Code finally lands down in the UK this week. Starring Jennifer Beals as the Windy City's first-ever female superintendent Teresa Colvin and Jason Clarke as detective Jarek Wysocki, the show focuses on their battle with police corruption inside and outside the force. Former Flashdance star Beals spoke to journalists earlier this year about what they can expect from the programme.

What is it about this show that makes it different from other cop shows?
"It's true in America and I'm sure it's the same in the UK that people get a sense that something is really wrong in government and our culture and that there's a corruption in not only politics, but spirit as well. People are so quick to be violent with each other. I think people would like to find a solution to make things better and I think we all inside of us have this desire to reform, but we don't know how to change things. And here you have a cop show that is not just about the action on the street. It certainly has that element and there is that cop drama stuff on the street, but there is also a female superintendent who is not only taking on corruption on the street, but in the halls of power and her own department. You are able to watch as this person is trying to make things right at great cost to herself. We all know there is corruption in politics and that there's corruption in any police force and there's also personal corruption and private corruption. That is sometimes illustrated in relationships with people. There are lots of different levels and you can enjoy the show on lots of different levels."

So it's not just a cop action series?
"No, the relationships are really important. To work in the police department, regardless of your position, it's very difficult. To be working on the street or homicide, it's very difficult. I can't stress enough the kinds of things you will see day-in-day-out and how difficult that is for the soul. To witness then on top of everything the corruption in City Hall that contributes to the suffering of your fellow officers and the people of the city, it is incredibly wearing. You have to ask yourself, why does someone stay in a job? What's going on personally that keeps them there? The show addresses those questions. The show doesn't portray every police offer as a soldier who is so tough that they can see shootings all day and they're impervious to it. There is a personal toll, which the show examines."

You spent some time with the police as part of your research. Was that an experience that shocked you?
"The first ride-along was shocking. But then you spend some time playing the part, you spend more time getting information and it's not so shocking. I grew up on the South side of Chicago. It was not the first time that I'd seen bullet holes in cars. It was not the first time I'd seen shell casings and frankly it was not the first time I'd seen anyone get shot. What was shocking really was that there was a group gathered around this man before he was taken away in the ambulance, and it was really clear that people there knew who shot him and that it was gang-related... but nobody would come forward. That was shocking. Seeing kids rope-jumping in the street at 2am, streets away from drug dealers, that's shocking. The gap in the circle is education. Primarily in my mind for the young women, because it's the young women who are raising the kids and that's where the circle perpetuates itself."

In what ways did this role test you?
"I was testing my own strength in having to suppress what is stereotypically more feminine or female values, like nurturing and inclusion. I think early on in her leadership, as much as she'd like to be inclusive and share information, she doesn't because it would be perceived as weak and perhaps put her in a position of weakness. That is not the nature of the system that she is now a part of. That was trying at times. To maintain a balance between masculine values and feminine values. That was really trying sometimes."

Did you talk to any high-powered women before playing the role?
"I did talk to other women. Obviously it's very interesting to be a woman in charge of a department or several bureaus, who are primarily men. To even ascend to the position where she can even be nominated for that job is impressive. I really believe that she was the token candidate and then they thought she would be a puppet. So they are surprised when she's not a puppet. Having said that, her ascension comes through expertise. She's been in lots of different departments in the Chicago police, she started out as an officer, a beat cop, she's done tactical, homicide, she knows a lot, which is a feasible idea. So she does have a great deal of respect from her fellow officers. But you would be naive to think that to be able to ascend to that sort of level wouldn't be without cost. She's got to be a bit of a bad-ass. I think it's also cost her a personal life. Everything is about this job."

Did you have any reservations about the show or the role?
"If I didn't feel up for the challenges of the role, I certainly wouldn't have taken it because I wouldn't want to disappoint myself or anybody else. I knew that I had a great writing time and I knew that we would have a lot of help in preparing for the role. When we started shooting, sometimes I was at a loss on what to do, because comprehending the role was pretty extraordinary. So much that the superintendent does and to be the first female superintendent... it's a lot to take on. There were so many things that I had questions about that nobody could answer for me, because there has never been a female superintendent in Chicago. So with Teresa I was making things up as I go along and I was trying to find my way. And, oh gosh, no reservations about the show. No reservations at all. Shawn is a great writer and a great leader."

The show is obviously being compared to The Shield. Do you mind that?
"For me, I really separate myself from the advertising department apart from doing interviews. However, if they want to promote it as that it is fine. As long as people tune in and watch the stories, it doesn't bother me at all. I think there was a thing about The L Word being compared to Sex and the City as well, 'Same sex, different city', or something like that. That was fine too."

The Chicago Code starts on Thursday, May 12 at 9pm on Sky1.

25 millones de dolares es la cantidad de beneficios financieros que generó el piloto y los 12 capítulos de The Chicago Code para la ciudad de Chicago

Chicago Code' is canceled; city loses 25 million
by Kate Dries May. 11, 2011


FOX cancelled The Chicago Code, a police drama set and filmed locally, Wednesday night.

Rich Moskal, director of the Chicago Film Office, reported that the pilot and first 12 episodes of Chicago Code gave 25 million to the city. “Losing that is disappointing,” Moskal said. “What’s tremendous about television series like Chicago Code is how consistently they’re contributing to the local economy.” He spoke of the benefits of a television show over a movie – a television show buys goods and services for an extended period of time – but said that the local acting community was probably the most visible beneficiary of the Code’s presence, calling the new roles being created every episode a tremendous opportunity for actors.

Chicago Code is not the only show being filmed in Chicago right now, and "we're in a fortunate position of not having all our eggs in one basket," Moskal said. He pointed to the new Starz show Boss starring Kelsey Gramer as a fictional Chicago mayor, which began filming a few weeks ago, as well as the highly touted Playboy from NBC. Moskal thought signs were good for Playboy's future, given its “cool factor” (the show has piggybacked off the current popularity of Mad Men by looking at the lives of Playboy bunnies in the 1960s).

Moskal also mentioned Powers, a pilot about detectives who deal with superhero homocides, based off the comic of the same name. Powers is attached to FX, and is set to start filming in July.

On Wednesday, Governor Pat Quinn met with Kelsey Grammer and the producers of Boss to celebrate the opening of a new film and television studio at Cinespace Chicago Film Studios. The state is investing $5 million into the project, which will become the largest facility of its kind outside of Hollywood, with space for three to six productions at a time. It's estimated to create thousands of new jobs.

In 2010, the Illinois Film Office (IFO) reported $161 million in spending, and more than 8,000 job hires.

The Chicago Code was critically well-received, and starred Jennifer Beals as the police departments first female superintendent. It paid homage to Chicago's corrupt political history with several character arches, including one that featured Delroy Lindo as a corrupt alderman.

Responding to the news of cancellation last night, creator Shawn Ryan, a native of Rockford, IL, tweeted that The Chicago Code will be finishing out its season, with the final two episodes airing in the next two weeks. "Fox suits loved the show, but have a business to run," he tweeted.[

Jennifer Beals todavía no ha podido ser contactada para comentar, pero hay algunos artículos interesantes escritos en torno a la cancelación y también una entrevista interesante con Shawn Ryan.
Todos comentan que fue un buen show, un beneficio importante para la ciudad de Chicago, que la crtítica ha sido siempre muy positiva, pero que por desgracia a pesar de tener una media de 6 millones de espectadores, no lograba llegar al público más joven (por ser un show más o menos serio). Shawn Ryan dice que está buscando alternativas con otros canales, pero que sería muy difícil conseguirlo

New TV pilots could plug void left by 'Code' cancelation
May 11, 2011
By Nina Metz and Steve Johnson
Tribune reporters

On the bright side, Chicagoans will no longer have to get worked up about non-existent street locations, Jason Clarke's accent or the "Irish mob."

On the dark side, the news that Fox won't renew "The Chicago Code," the Shawn Ryan-helmed police drama set and shot here, means a whole lot of potential Chicago film industry paychecks won't be cut later this year.

It's a loss, officials said, but it's not as if the city will be bereft of TV work, as might have been the case if a cancellation like this one had come five years ago. They painted a rosy picture of filming in the area and of "Code's" impact during its brief time here.

"We're very disappointed," said Betsy Steinberg, managing director of the Illinois Film Office, "but there are lot of very positive take-aways. When Shawn Ryan decides to set a show in your town, that's a big deal. The upside is that the show was super-high-profile because he is so revered in the TV industry."

Ryan, the writer/producer from Rockford who gained prominence and Emmy Awards while creating and running "The Shield," spilled the beans to HitFix.com late Tuesday: "Code," which had long been considered to be "on the bubble" for renewal, would not be picked up for next season.

Although mostly well-liked by critics, it never found a large audience or even a growing one as it ran for 11 episodes this year. The final two are slated to run in the regular timeslot the next two Mondays, Ryan tweeted, saying viewers should find a "satisfying" story resolution.

Monday's episode drew 5.7 million viewers and 4 percent of the adults age 18-49 who were watching TV. That's down from the 7.4 million and 6 percent who saw the second episode in February, although in general more people watch TV in February than in May.

Ryan did not immediately respond to an interview request, but his most direct comment on Twitter (where his avatar is Illinois in outline, the word "Rockford" beneath it) he acknowledged ratings just weren't there.

"It is a good show, the fox suits just don't see it," someone wrote. "Fox suits loved the show," Ryan responded, "but have a business to run."

Later he found time for some gallows humor as his show found itself among Twitter's most popular topics of the moment: "Hey! #ChicagoCode is trending! Oh, wait ..."

And this: "Only good news about #TheChicagoCode cancellation: Now I have time to guest star on the Season Finale of The Office with everyone else."

Jennifer Beals, who plays a new female police superintendent trying to bring down Delroy Lindo's corrupt alderman, had rented a home back in her hometown of Chicago during the TV season, staying well beyond the end of filming late last year.

She could not be reached Wednesday but said in a March interview that she would likely move on if the show was not renewed.

"No sadness … just gratitude," tweeted Matt Lauria, who played a young cop under the wing of Clarke's hard-boiled, Polish-American veteran detective.

The show drew some criticism locally for its insistence that the "Irish mob" was Chicago's crime problem, and for what some thought were flaws in the Chicago accent of Clarke, a native of Australia.

But in filming conducted from August through December, "Code" also presented one of the most complete looks at the city of any entertainment shot here, visiting not just Loop "L" platforms and the lakefront but working-class neighborhoods, abandoned lots and back alleys. And it strived to give the series, and the city, an epic, cinematic look.

The Illinois Film Office estimates that "The Chicago Code" spent about $25 million locally and created 400 jobs. Chicago Film Office Director Rich Moskal said each episode cost roughly $2 million to produce.

But because another series is currently in town shooting, the hole left by the cancellation of the Fox series won't be quite so gaping. Moskal said he believes "Boss," the new Starz series starring Kelsey Grammer as a fictional Chicago mayor, spends about $2 million per episode, as well.

"Boss," tentatively set to air in October, is shooting fewer episodes — eight, compared with "The Chicago Codes'" 13 this season (and what could have been 20-plus for next season) — but the economic impact will be substantial nonetheless.

Shawn Ryan: "I Don't Want to Be a Dinosaur"
by Maria Elena Fernandez

Ryan got bad news from Fox Tuesday about his critically acclaimed cop show. He talks to Maria Elena Fernandez about the tabloidization of the TV business.

As the broadcast networks decide on their new schedules, some people get good news, and some get bad news. Shawn Ryan, one of Hollywood's most respected TV writers and producers, was getting ready for dinner Tuesday night when Fox President of Entertainment Kevin Reilly called him. His freshman drama, The Chicago Code, was being canceled, just six months after FX put an end to his other series, Terriers. Ryan, who took the news like a trooper, is already looking to a future that might possibly merge his gritty, realistic sensibility with gossip magazine fodder.



It's such a shame. The Chicago Code was a good show.

I thought we had a good run and I'm really proud of the last two episodes that are still to air. It's a very tough time in the TV biz right now. And the days of just worrying about the quality of the show and being able to be super patient and giving it a couple of years to grow... those days are gone. All you can do is try your best and make the shows as good as you can. And you're just at the mercy of the viewing public.

How have you been spending the day today?

I found out around dinner time last night that the show had been canceled so I had enough time to send emails out to the actors, and the writers, and the crew so that they heard it from me first. So I didn't have a lot of time to call everyone. So I've been spending a lot of time today just trying to call everyone and thank them for their work and everything.

How exactly did you hear?

I got a call directly from [Fox President of Entertainment]] Kevin Reilly. He's a class act and I appreciated hearing directly from him and hearing some of his reasoning. He and I go way back and have a lot of respect for each other. That was a class act on his part to call me directly.

We had just turned in a document last week that talked about what we imagined happening on Season 2. And we had turned it in earlier that day. So I thought Kevin was calling to talk about that document and I was ready to go into sales mode. Instead, he quickly and with a very clean cut, delivered the bad news.

Did he even read that document?


He actually liked it quite a bit.

What was his reasoning for the cancellation then?

It was about burrowing really deep into the numbers. There was a concern about the age of the viewers of this show. It's very difficult to make a show skew younger. If they were to grow the show, they would have to grow it younger. It is what it is.

It's interesting. It's given me a lot to think about going forward. It's such a tabloid age that we live in. And there seems to be this psychic connection between some of the more successful shows and the tabloid nature of them. You know, the way that Dancing With the Stars, and Jersey Shore and even Glee to a certain extent. The shows almost serve to sell magazines and the magazines almost serve to advertise the shows, if that makes sense. And The Chicago Code wasn't that kind of show. It wasn't a tabloid-friendly kind of show. We took the subject matter seriously and we presented it the best way we could. But people have a lot of options and it just didn't break through.

Were you surprised with the decision?

I was clinging to that hope as well. I had given ourselves a 40 percent chance of being picked up in my own mind. So I can't say that I was shocked but I was holding on to some significant hope that we would get the benefit of the doubt. But we didn't.

Is there any chance you might resurrect it elsewhere?

I was talking to some of the 20th people today and there are conversations happening today to see if there's a possibility. Those moves are always difficult. So I wouldn't say it's likely but I'm sure we'll investigate all possibilities.

What's next for you? Do you even know?

I do have one more thing in the Fox family, which is a pilot for FX that one of my Chicago Code writers, Davey Holmes, is writing. That's being developed under my deal and we'll probably turn in a script to FX within the next month and see where that goes.

And then I start a new deal with Sony on June 1 that will allow me to develop in the cable and network arenas. And if we can't find a savior for Chicago Code, this will be the first extended period of time I've had in a long time without a show either in production or prep, so I'll use that time to re-charge myself artistically and try to come up with some new ideas.

You talked about how the business is changing. It's hard to even picture, considering the kinds of shows that you've done, but do you envision getting yourself to a creative place where you can do a show that US Weekly is going to care about?

(Laughs) I don't know. You can't achieve much success chasing what you think works in a crass manner. I still will approach these things from what is the story I'd love to tell and what's the story I'd love to work seven years on? Having said that, I do want to open my mind. I think there is a change going on in the TV landscape right now—not necessarily all for the best. But it is going on and I don't want to be a dinosaur that's stuck in his ways and can't evolve with the industry. So I'll spend a lot of time looking around at what is working and the things that didn't work and opening my mind to see what comes out of it.

Considering what's happened, you don't sound like you've got your head in the sand.

This is just my Midwestern upbringing. I try not to get too big-headed when things are going well and I try not to get too depressed when things aren't going well. I've come to accept that I can only control the things I can control. In the case of both Terriers and The Chicago Code, I am very proud creatively of both those shows and the fact that we didn't get enough audience to get a second season for either, is very disappointing. But I tend to feel worse for the actors and the crews on those two shows who did great work because I know I'm going to get a lot of other opportunities to work on other things. So I feel more compassion for them than I feel sorry for myself.

To have had the critical and commercial success that I did with The Shield, I always knew in the back of my head, going forward, that not every experience was going to be like that. I always knew there would be big disappointments along the way. So I've prepped myself for years for the idea that I'm not necessarily the golden child where everything I touch turns to magic. So a night like last night, I can approach it logically and understand that as disappointing as that it is, it presents an opportunity to do new things. And even if we came back, we would have immediately been in the bubble and in the same position. So I tell myself, this is an opportunity to do something bigger and better.

You know. I shared a building a couple of years ago with Chris Lloyd and Steve Levitan and I remember talking to them when Back to You was canceled by Fox. And they took that opportunity to re-group and they came up with Modern Family, which is a huge success on every level. So I'll try to use them as an inspiration of how they rebounded back from a disappointing cancellation to create something that was really relevant and successful. And we'll see if we can do something like that.

There are two episodes left of The Chicago Code. Are fans going to be frustrated when it's over, or will there some kind of closure?

I don't want to give away too much but I don't think people will be frustrated. We wanted to have an ending of sorts. We were prepared, certainly, for the story to continue to Season 2. But I think fans of the show will like these two episodes quite a bit.

Flashdance star Jennifer Beals on her gritty new role as a chief of police

May 15 2011 Jenny Eden, Sunday Mail

WHEN most Hollywood actors go for a ride along with the police they are lucky to see more action than a speeding ticket.

Tucked away in the back of a control car they get a safe, sanitised view of the world their shows are set in.

Not Jennifer Beals.

She got a waiver to sign, a stab-proof vest and a lesson on how to collect bullet casings at the scene of a gang shooting. But then her new series, The Chicago Code, is set in one of America's most violent cities and in a world Jennifer is all too familiar with. It's not just a location for her new TV series - growing up, it's also the place she called home.

The 47-year-old actress said: "It was not the first time that I've seen bullet holes in cars. It's not the first time that I've seen shell casings, and it's frankly not the first time I've seen anybody shot. It's not so shocking. I grew up on the south side of Chicago."

Her brush with brutal reality researching The Chicago Code came when the homicide cops she was shadowing were first at the scene of the shooting - finding the victim bleeding out on the street.

She said: "What was shocking was that there was a group gathered around this man who were all very upset that he had been shot and it was really clear that there were people there who knew who had shot him and that it was a gang-related incident, but that nobody would come forward with any information. To see six-year-old children playing in the street at 2am a block away from drug dealers - that's also shocking.

"I was able to see how the police department set up a crime scene, being able to follow the trail of blood to figure out where he would've been shot, where the shooter would have been and looking for the evidence of shell casings, which I helped the detectives find."

It wasn't her only encounter with life on the streets when another call-out left them trying to help a mentally ill woman who was running amok.

She said: "She kept taking her shirt off and refusing to put it back on. She clearly had not been taking her meds, and she thought I was Obama's sister and that I should somehow save her."

Despite what she saw at first-hand Jennifer was thrilled to find a role in a gritty TV series that could take her back home with her family - her Canadian businessman husband Ken Dixon and five-year-old daughter Ella. She plays Superintendent Teresa Colvin, the city's first-ever female police chief.

The show also stars Australian actor Jason Clarke and veteran Delroy Lindo and, unusually for US TV, it was really filmed in the city where it was set, using some of the toughest areas as locations.

That's no real surprise given The Chicago Code's creator, Shawn Ryan, was also the man behind brutally realistic, award-winning cop show The Shield. It was never going to sugar-coat the city but her walk on the wild side hasn't diminished her love of it and she says she could easily call it home again.

She said: "I feel such a great love for Chicago. I am protective of it, the city is so beautiful and the people are so great. My mum is still there and my friends. I told my manager that it was one of two cities I could imagine spending long periods of time with my family."

Jennifer was drawn away from her home town when she landed the lead role in classic 1980s movie, Flashdance. She had been studying at Yale when the chance to play Alex Owens - a welder by day and exotic dancer by night came up.

Before then she had played one minor movie role and suddenly found herself a major star with one of the biggest-grossing films of the year and an Oscar-winning soundtrack. But rather than capitalise on the hit film, she turned down roles in order to stay at university, where she majored in American literature.

Her next big career move came when she played Ivy League-educated lesbian Bette Porter in The L Word for six seasons. Her work on the series saw her nominated for a number of awards, including gay and lesbian groups.

She has joked that the show turned her into an honorary lesbian because of the impact it had on the gay community but she admits at the time she had no idea how significant the lesbian drama would be, or that it would take up five years of her life.

She said: "I am proud to have been a part of the show. I have had so many fans come up to me who were really deeply appreciative of the show and what it had meant for them and their own sense of identity and their own sense of inclusion in our society and in our culture.

"We made a whole community visible. It is not often you get to make that kind of impact. It's affected me personally because I've come in contact with women who have the bravery to be out in the world with their sexuality. I didn't pay attention to gay issues before the show but now I take them more personally."

She is hoping her role as Teresa Colvin could also make an impact on women. She has studied Hillary Clinton, who sat with US President Barack Obama watching the live feed of Osama Bin Laden being shot, to see how strong, powerful women handle themselves but she admits she doesn't envy Hillary her job.

She joked: "I would last about a week then I would lose my mind."

Jennifer, whose credits also include playing Tim Roth's wife in another Sky1 hit show, Lie To Me, and starring in post-apocalyptic movie The Book of Eli opposite Denzel Washington, credits her own upbringing with helping her slip so effortlessly into playing strong women. Her father died when she was nine and she was brought up by her mum.

She said: "I just assumed that I should have the same rights and access to things like baseball bats and field time. Maybe it was the amount of time my mum spent reading Greek myths to me, the whole literature about the goddess somehow permeated and there's an element of power there."

And just to make sure she didn't fall short for The Chicago Code, she not only practiced at the gun range but also took boxing lessons to make sure she was in great shape and ready to slug it out with the boys.

She laughed: "I took up boxing because it is such a masculine thing to do, to want to punch people - I've never wanted to be hit in the head. But it is very hard and I completely gave it up when the show was done."

The Chicago Code is on Sky1 on Thursday at 9pm.

Luck of the draw

Jennifer got her big break in top, hit 80s movie Flashdance, where she played a welder by day and exotic dancer by as night. She also starred Bette Porter in The L Word for five years.

una explicación que no dice nada realmente..

http://www.assignmentx.com/2011/breaking-news-fox-talks-about-canceling-human-target-lie-to-me-the-chicago-code-and-others/
Breaking News: Fox talks about canceling HUMAN TARGET, LIE TO ME, THE CHICAGO CODE and others

It’s a tough TV business, and every year fan favorite shows get the boot in favor of new shows that sometimes don’t live up to the potential of the departing series.

This year, Fox canceled many fan favorites including the three season LIE TO ME, the two season HUMAN TARGET and THE CHICAGO CODE and the comedies TRAFFIC LIGHT and BREAKING IN.

While speaking to the press today about their Fall 2011 and Mid-season 2012 schedules, Fox Entertainment President Kevin Reilly spoke about major casualties this year at the network and why they had to make these hard decisions.

“I think we were pretty candid that a couple of the shows we had to let go was because we didn’t have shelf space and they probably would have made the cut at other networks,” says Reilly. “We could have been more conservative this year, but we wanted to take our core strength now and seed in new shows for the next chapter. We gave those shows a shot and now its time to try some new ones.”

In terms of how they determined the new bumper crop of shows, Fox Entertainment Chairman Peter Rice admits that Fox is quite different from their competitors.

“We have very vibrant franchises and a vast diversity of shows from reality, animation, comedy and drama so we’re very selective what we bring on,” says Rice. “We have a very strong schedule for next year even though we’re sad to see these other shows leaving.”

crónica de los esfueroz de los fans para intentar salvar a Chicago Code de la cancelación e instrucciones de cómo mostrar el apoyo

Saving 'The Chicago Code' - The Fans' Story
May 16th, 2011 11:10am

FOX's The Chicago Code is an outstanding series. What's equally worth talking about are similarly great efforts of its fans to save it. It's my pleasure to bring you my insider's blog as the fans fight to bring The Chicago Code back.

The Chicago Code

Day 0

Late Tuesday, May 10, 2011, word leaked that The Chicago Code would be no more. FOX's decision to axe the drama came as a surprise; its ratings had gone up 7% just the night before, and with no shortage of critical praise, it had been considered the strongest of the network's "bubble" shows. Surprise quickly turned to anger for the show's devoted fan base, who had been supporting the series all season long and swung into another gear to protest the cancellation.

Day 1

By Wednesday morning, Ashli Garza had launched a Facebook page to Bring The Chicago Code Back http://www.facebook.com/pages/Bring-The-Chicago-Code-Back/144366698969024 , and it had become the hub for a rapidly forming fan effort. The page had over 1,000 likes in the first 24 hours and that number is growing.

Fans dug up contact information for FOX President of Entertainment Kevin Reilly http://www.examiner.com/the-chicago-code-in-national/how-to-help-save-the-chicago-code , the man who had broken the news to series creator Shawn Ryan, and immediately began to call, email and write on behalf of their series. This was no small effort: as one fan noted on Facebook, when he called Reilly's office, the exec's assistant told him she'd been fielding a lot of calls like his that day...

I had the unfortunate task of posting the news on the show's fansite, ChicagoCodeFan.com http://chicagocodefan.com/ , and even I got plenty of comments from upset fans. I didn't have time to answer them all, however, because I was one of those people contacting Reilly's office, and busy giving my best eulogy for both Chicago Code and my other favorite series, Human Target http://www.starpulse.com/news/Brittany_Frederick/2011/05/11/dearly_departed_eulogizing_the_chicago . That commentary now has over a hundred "likes" on Facebook and double digits in comments.

Writing that piece was when I knew this was going to be something different. I've loved and lost quite a few shows over the decades I've been watching TV (RIP, Sports Night, K-Ville, Traveler, Keen Eddie...), and every time I've certainly wished it wasn't so. Many a cancelled show has had a fan outcry over it. Yet this is a different show, and these are different fans. The Chicago Code was more than a TV show for many of us; it was not just entertainment but something that affected us, or represented our city, or made us think. As a result, the show's fans are some of the most dedicated I've ever seen.

That was when I knew I had to start keeping a blog. Win or lose, I knew this was a story that needed to be told.

Day 2

Good news and bad news on Thursday. Word broke that Matt Lauria http://www.starpulse.com/news/Brittany_Frederick/2011/05/13/the_chicago_codes_matt_lauria_moves_to , who so well portrayed Caleb Evers on Chicago Code, had booked a guest role on USA's Burn Notice that might become a recurring part.

This was obviously good for Matt, and as such it was hard not to be excited, especially since he was moving to another great series. At the same time, many fans wondered if this meant he would be unavailable to return to playing Caleb should The Chicago Code make a comeback.

The honest answer is it's too soon to tell.

Meanwhile, an online petition http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/keep-chicago-strong-save-the-chicago-code/ to save the show continued to circulate across Facebook and Twitter, and amass over a thousand signatures in its first 48 hours. And still another plot was brewing: in the vein of many fan drives past, what to send to FOX along with our letters...? Stay tuned.

Day 3

A shout-out to Cathy and her fellow fans of TNT's also axed, also resurrected cop show Southland: upon hearing of our similar plight, they were willing to step up and help me with getting the word out to save Chicago Code. Having the support of fans who have already run a successful campaign was a huge, huge blessing.

This prompted a discussion amongst the fans: would another network take our show? Should we be writing to other channels than just FOX? The agreement was that we certainly should, but perhaps best to wait until we knew which networks had any interest, rather than expending too much effort writing to every single one out there. Knowing that Shawn Ryan was exploring that same possibility himself, we agreed to sit back and wait, hoping to find a network that would listen to him - and to us.

Day 4

Discovered tonight that Todd Williams, who plays Isaac Joiner, tweeted me to thank me for the support. That made my day.

Day 5

This is the first day I've had to sit back and look at all the website comments, tweets and emails I've gotten from Chicago Code fans over the past week. The outpouring of love for the show has been overwhelming. I'm blessed in that the fans recognize how much I love the show as well - they've asked me to be a major part of this effort, which I'm all too proud to participate in. For my part, I am as big a fan of the show as anyone, and if I can use my platform in the media to help it survive, I want to. The show and everyone involved in it have earned that.

The last week has certainly been an interesting experience for me, from an emotional standpoint. It's one thing to be a journalist and just report the facts of a show's cancellation. It's another for it to be a show I deeply love personally and that I know is comprised of wonderful people. And it's surreal to be running the fansite, posting promos and news, knowing it might be some of the last we ever see.

Cancellations always are horrible in my job, but they happen, and most of the time I accept them. I know that this is a business. I know that in the grand scheme of things it's not the end of the world. As dearly as I loved Human Target, I saw the writing on the wall a few months ago and I've had time to make peace with it coming to an end. But when it comes to The Chicago Code, things are different.

I have a unique, painful, interesting feeling inside of me: that I am not okay with this, and I am not letting this show - not just this show, but these experiences, opportunities, these people I've met and have yet to meet - go down without a fight. I said that about Human Target last year, and I'm saying it about The Chicago Code this year. It might all mean nothing, but I can't in good conscience walk away without knowing I did everything I could.

I'm not alone in that, either. I want to share with you some of the things that have been sent to me so far from other fans:

"As a Chicagoan, it is exciting to see a show evolve around all the places I've been and things I've seen. Code and its storyline fit perfectly in Chicago, and create a character of the city itself," said Justin Schroeder, who launched the Save The Chicago Code Facebook event http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=217127558315330 . "The franchise and its fans deserve to see what another season will bring."

His sentiments are echoed by another Chicago resident, Emily Runyan. "It's interesting, thought provoking, well done and necessary TV. I hate to see TV shows that mean something being pulled off the air."

I can't think of a better quote, though, than to borrow from a letter written by Sierra Campbell: "It's a shameful reality when such great, and practically unknown actors (with the exception of Jennifer [Beals]) may never get the chance to act in these roles again."

As proud as I am of this show, which quickly became one of my favorite series ever to see air, I'm just as proud of the fans. They're not just raging against the cancellation of an hour's worth of entertainment. They're motivated by and fighting for so much more than that: what that hour of time has brought into their lives. As a writer, that impact is more priceless to me than any award or ratings numbers would ever be.

How can you get involved?

If you're a Chicago Code fan looking to join the fight, I have exactly the tools to get you started. I've written a guide on how you can help save The Chicago Code http://www.examiner.com/the-chicago-code-in-national/how-to-help-save-the-chicago-code . It tells you everything you should do, and how you can do it, to keep this great show on the air. You can also visit ChicagoCodeFan.com http://chicagocodefan.com/ .

Most importantly, you can keep watching the show live Monday nights at 9 PM ET/PT on FOX. Prove to the network that last week's ratings jump wasn't a fluke and show them that they made the wrong decision. If the numbers stay solid, that gives us more of a fighting chance.

Stay tuned for my next insider's blog as we continue to fight for The Chicago Code.

The Chicago Code 1.12 “Greylord & Gambat” Review
Posted by Brittany on May 16, 2011 in The Chicago Code

The cruel fate of The Chicago Code hasn’t dampened my goodwill towards it. Possibly because this show was written and wrapped months ago, there’s no sign of giving up or backing down.

I’ve mentioned previously how much I appreciate that this show hits the ground running, and it does: after giving us a quick, efficient catch-up on the events of last week‘s episode, we find out that Teresa’s star witness has gone missing just before he’s scheduled to testify, and Gibbons is now aware of the existence of a mole, though he doesn’t know that it’s Liam, who’s being blatantly hit on by Killian’s daughter (Shannon Lucio), whom we met the week before that. All of this happens in the first ten minutes. I’m impressed by how Virgil Williams throws all that very important information at us in such a short time, but keeps it from sounding like a “previously on” and from getting muddled. That’s talent.

The hour’s a battle between the police and the Irish mob to see who can find the missing witness first, which puts Jarek and Liam in direct opposition. Jarek is his usual tenacious self; I love that he does attention-grabbing things because that’s the right play, not because the writers are trying to make him cool, which is an easy trap many TV cops have fallen into. Pardon my language, but Jarek is a badass because he’s not trying to be a badass, nor is he written that way. He’s just good police. Having Gibbons show up at his desk in the middle of the night: yowza. Especially when Gibbons offers him the identity of his brother’s killer. Yet Jarek’s resolve never wavers. That’s why I’ve come to embrace him as a hero.

It’s Liam that has the more compelling arc, though; we know he’s got emotional scars from the arson he set, and now he’s asked to commit outright murder. Unwilling to cross that last line, he stabs his cohort instead, and knowing his time is running out, makes one last play to deliver the fatal blow to the bad guys. It’s tragic but perfectly in character that doing so gets him shot; we’ve seen ever since the arson episode that he was willing to put himself in harm’s way for justice, and that belief finally caught up to him. There’s almost a sense of beauty in it, because we know he wouldn’t be bothered by how it all turned out.

Even among the supporting characters, there are refreshing touches of depth. Lieutenant Kelly, who’s Teresa’s chief of staff but in Gibbons’ pocket, initially resists the alderman’s idea of outing an undercover cop to the Irish mob. He might be on the wrong side of the fight but he’s still a cop. He caves when Gibbons threatens his family, but it’s nice to see he’s not a one-dimensional corrupt cop. We also finally see some merit come out of Gibbons’ relationship with his assistant; up until now I’d thought it was just a throwaway subplot, but I should have known better. There’s no such thing with The Chicago Code.

Each episode of this show reveals to me something I appreciate that goes beyond its content – something that’s technically superior. This week, we were treated to how nothing in its world is black and white…but neither is it that muddled, unsatisfying mess that many shows think passes for grey. It’s not what we think is ambiguous; it really is ambiguous. I suppose the best way that I can describe it is that The Chicago Code is remarkably human. That’s a rarity I haven’t seen in a television series in a long time, and it’s a shame that it looks like I won’t see it again.
