The Chicago Code Makes the Windy City Its Headquarters
SIREN SAYS: A rookie cop drama has been filming everywhere from Millennium Park to rough parts of Austin and the South Side.
By Rod O’Connor



The cast of the upcoming TV show, 'The Chicago Code'

It’s a bright Saturday afternoon in the fall, and extras in business attire are puttering along the sidewalk as if it were just another weekday. A black SUV halts in front of City Hall and out steps the Chicago-born actress Jennifer Beals in a crisp police uniform, trailed by a cluster of cameramen filming a scene for the new television cop drama The Chicago Code (premiering February 7th on Fox).

But this crew isn’t grabbing a few downtown exteriors to slap together with scenes shot in L.A. studios, as was the case with the show ER. The expensive equipment currently lining LaSalle Street has been working overtime for the past six months, filming everywhere from Millennium Park to rough parts of Austin and the South Side. The goal: to craft a realistic portrait of Chicago for TV.

Shawn Ryan, 44, the show’s Rockford-born creator, whose gritty police series The Shield was a cable hit, is aware locals may be dubious. “I understand the feeling that Hollywood isn’t interested in delving too far into the city,” he says, perched on the marble stairs inside City Hall. “But we’re shooting the city in a way that no other show or movie has.”

The Chicago Code stars Beals (The L Word) as the city’s first female police superintendent, Jason Clarke (Public Enemies) as a tough Polish cop, Matt Lauria (Friday Night Lights) as his eager young partner, and Delroy Lindo (Malcolm X) as a shady alderman. Flashbacks explore the characters’ connections to Chicago history, from the origins of the Cabrini-Green housing projects to the city’s relationship with organized crime. Over the first season, the story unfolds in Chinatown and Boystown—neighborhoods rarely chosen by location scouts. “When I pitched it, I viewed it as a police show. Now I view it as a city show through the lens of police officers,” Ryan explains.

In the pilot, local details are spot on: the street sweeper truck in the background; the familiar back porches of three-flats. References to baseball allegiances feel natural. And to keep the police action true to life, the show’s consultant, an active Chicago homicide detective named John Folino Jr., parses every script for inaccuracies that would make real cops cringe.

With plot lines highlighting suspicious construction deals and police sit-downs with gang leaders, one might mistake the show for a ripped-from-the-headlines procedural—or an indictment of corruption in the vein of HBO’s The Wire. But Ryan is quick to say that he’s not looking to denigrate the city—or state, which provided generous tax breaks to help make the show a reality: “We are showing the city’s underbelly. But it’s fictional. I look at the city with a great deal of fondness.”

That affection comes from his years traveling back and forth to Chicago from his childhood home in Rockford. Ryan recalls attending hockey camps led by former Blackhawk Tony Esposito and playing in sports tournaments throughout the city and suburbs. He also remembers feeling like a bit of an outsider. “In the same way that Chicago can get overlooked by New York, Chicago tends to look down on Rockford,” he says.

That underdog aura fuels his drive to share an authentic portrayal of the Midwest with national audiences. “What I bring is the eye of an outsider with the heart of an insider,” he explains. “There’s definitely a New York– L.A. lean to what gets made [by Hollywood]. I think it took someone who was really committed to doing it here. It’s easy for a big production like Transformers 3 to come here and destroy downtown. But that’s only one aspect of the city.”

Jennifer Beals fired up for police drama
By Molly Woulfe molly.woulfe@nwi.com, (219) 852-4329 nwi.com | Posted: Friday, January 28, 2011 12:00 am



Chicago's top cop is a woman in "The Chicago Code," the new Fox crime drama premiering at 8 p.m. Feb. 7.

She's local, too. Creator Shawn Ryan tapped South Side native Jennifer Beals ("Flashdance," "L Word") as scrappy Police Superintendent Teresa Colvin.

Just one problem. Her Chicago twang is history, admits Beals, 47, who divides her time between Los Angeles and Vancouver.

"Oh, gosh, I have to work so hard to get my accent back," said the Francis Parker grad, who shot the pilot and several episodes last year on the West Side.

At this point, Aussie costar Jason Clarke ("Public Enemies") sounds more Grabowski than she does.

"I listen to him and his coach, and I've had a few sessions myself," Beals said.

Yet she's walking the walk as well as talking the talk. She's gone on ride-alongs with Chicago's finest, honed her shooting at a target range, and has adopted subtle police mannerisms.

When you're a cop, "you rest your hand on the gun," she noted. "And your thumbs are on your vest, when you're hanging out on the street."

The Chicago-based series, occupying "Lone Star's" Monday time slot, follows detective Jarek Wysocki (Clarke) as he takes on big-time corruption in the City of Big Shoulders. His pet target: Big, bad Alderman Ronin Gibbons (Delroy Lindo).

It's up to Colvin -- already under scrutiny -- to play diplomat as Wysocki crusades for justice.

Besides hitting the firing range, the Yale-educated Beales hit the books to research her role. Her reading list included Len O'Connor's "Clout: Mayor Daley and His City" and municipal guides to wards, districts and aldermen. Next up: Mike Royko's "Boss."

It pays to do one's homework. The eagle-eyed Beals has corrected a few errors in scripts, pointing out that "a certain ward does not incorporate a certain neighborhood, or an alderman can't possibly be alderman of this ward and the other," she said.

If she could tape anywhere in her hometown, the Bears fan's first choice would not be Soldier Field ("Don't get me started," she growled) but the lakefront. Second choice: The Field Museum. Beals loves the nature dioramas that have enthralled schoolchildren for generations.

Her favorite shows a golden eagle, gripping a rabbit in its claws, descending to its nest of hungry offspring.

The scene could be a symbol of justice, or the predatory nature of politics. Or not, Beals agrees. She can just picture a Teresa Colvin-informer rendezvous there. "I think it would be a good place to meet a mole, at a weird nature exhibit," she said.

Opinions expressed are solely those of the writer. Reach her at molly.woulfe@nwi.com or at (219) 852-4329.

Introducing 'The Chicago Code' (the basics part 1)
The Chicago Code basics part 1

The following relies heavily on the Fox press release but your The Chicago Code Examiner has some early analysis and more info he thinks you should know early in part 2.

The Chicago Code (formerly titled Ride-Along if you recall from last May's upfronts), is a new semi-serialized police drama from critically acclaimed creator Shawn Ryan (The Shield, showrunner on Terriers) and will make its series debut Monday, February 7th (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. Shot on location in Chicago, The Chicago Code follows the Windy City’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.

Starring Jason Clarke (Brotherhood) and Jennifer Beals (The L Word), the fast-paced series centers on Jarek Wysocki (Clarke), a local legend and a larger-than-life veteran of the Chicago Police Department who wields considerable power thanks to his relationship with Teresa Colvin (Beals), his ex-partner and the city’s first female superintendent, now in charge of a 10,000-member police force. While Teresa diplomatically governs amidst the complicated landscape of Chicago politics, Jarek works the streets on a crusade to clean up crime and avenge his brother’s murder. Along the way, they face powerful adversaries, including Alderman Ronin Gibbons (Delroy Lindo, Kidnapped), a building-magnate-turned-politician who has ruled his ward with a velvet glove for over two decades.

Joining Jarek on the street is Caleb Evers (Matt Lauria, Friday Night Lights), an eager young detective trying desperately to prove himself. Also in Jarek’s charge is his niece, Vonda Wysocki (Devin Kelley, Tease), a rookie beat copper whose father – Jarek’s brother – was killed in the line of duty when she was young. Jarek keeps close tabs on her and is less than thrilled with the risk-taking ways of her cocky hotshot partner, Isaac Joiner (Todd Williams, CSI). Also in the mix is low-life Liam Hennessey (Billy Lush, The Black Donnellys), an Irish thug who blends in with the gritty world of local crime.

The Chicago Code is a production of 20th Century Fox Television and MiddKid Productions. The series is written and executive-produced by Shawn Ryan and Tim Minear (Dollhouse). Charles McDougall (Big Love) also directed and executive-produced the pilot episode.

Introducing 'The Chicago Code' (the basics part 2)

The Chicago Code Examiner has more in-depth and non-spoilery analysis.

Worst case scenario:

Shawn Ryan has completed primary work on the first season's 13 episode order so we'd hopefully get to see them all eventually even if ratings tank and Fox pulls the series. Yes, we have to think about the worst case scenario as Fox's critically loved Lonestar was pulled after two episodes this fall. The mothership Fox network is going to be more trigger happy than its corporate family cousin FX, who at least aired all 13 episodes of Terriers before announcing its cancellation.

Best case scenario:

Interest is high thanks to various fanbases - Friday Night Lights, The Shield, Jennifer Beals alone is a draw, plus the Joss Whedon-verse connection with Shawn Ryan (who worked on Angel) and Tim Minear. The series is going to be promoted during the Super Bowl and will air post-House every week. The Monday at 9 timeslot also allows viewers to change over to Castle, Hawaii Five-0 or even Harry's Law in the competitive 10 pm hour for a two hour viewing block of scripted dramas that are not cut and dry procedurals. Direct 9PM competition is the second hour of The Bachelor (which you can just watch recapped in the first hour next week) plus reruns of Two and Half Men while Charlie Sheen is in rehab. When NBC's The Event returns on Feb. 28th, it will have an uphill battle to reclaim any viewers it had prior to a long hiatus. So we could get an fairly uninterrupted and decently rated run of The Chicago Code episodes leading to a second season pick-up.

Show comparisons:

The Shield focused more on moral ambiguity and corruption amongst the ranks while The Chicago Code starts off with the cops being the clear good guys and it is city hall that is crossing the moral line. Language wise, you can't say the same words on broadcast as they could on cable, so Jason Clarke's character is written as a curse-word hater. Big whoop, it adds a fun character trait. However, "jag-hole" gets thrown around a bit and when I looked that up on an online urban dictionary I was surprised the word slipped through. Maybe a Battlestar Galactica fan will be among the characters eventually. That show got really creative with "frak."

The void this series fills on Fox is 24. While 24 was unique in its structure, Fox hasn't had a fast paced, multi-layered, ensemble drama with continuing plot lines and cliffhanger endings since 24 left the air. The Chicago Code's pilot has a pretty shocking cliffhanger before the final act with some resolution before final credits, but the action and plots carry over through the next two episodes. The ensemble has the opportunity to get big really quick and there might even be ...a mole.

If the show follows the 13 episode FX model of Justified and Terriers last year, the big arc is set-up in pilot and first couple of episodes, then a few stand alone episodes that develop relationship arcs over the case of the week, mini-arcs carry through the middle and then in the last couple episodes of the season the big season arc comes back and pulls everything together. It is highly effective storytelling and allows new viewers to come on in the middle.

Action-wise Ryan was also showrunner on The Unit so he knows who to hire to help pull off big set piece explosions and choreograph small hand-to-hand combat scenes. The whole city of Chicago is the set and there is lots of fast paced walking, talking, driving, car and foot chasing. You'll want to pay attention to not only action scenes but all the plot detail coming at you during them. Be sure the kids are in bed, put the crossword puzzle down, load up the dishwasher, you are not going to want to miss a second. Paying attention won't feel like chore though, it is a fun ride. Unlike the flashy CSI's and Bones where several minutes can be devoted to the wizzbang technology used to solve crimes, those minutes are filled with plot on The Chicago Code.

Ask your The Chicago Code Examiner

Do you have questions about the show? Your The Chicago Code Examiner has seen the first three episodes and has access to the show's press team. What kind of articles do you want to see? Which cast member are you excited to see on screen again? Ask on Twitter (@TVKel) or in the comments below. Your ideas and answers to your questions will be incorporated into this coming week's introduction to The Chicago Code articles. There will be character introductions and the answer to the question "What is an alderman?" for those whose city governments are run differently from Chicago's.

The Chicago Code 1.01 “Pilot” Advance Review
Posted by Brittany on Jan 31, 2011 in The Chicago Code



A funny thing happened to me when I started watching The Chicago Code. I wasn’t seeing it the way a lot of people might. You see, I’ve had a rocky relationship at best with Shawn Ryan’s previous shows; I didn’t catch on to The Shield until season six, and I’m still trying to forget the disappointing fourth season of The Unit. I mention that because I want to make it clear his pedigree didn’t win me over when it came to this series. Nor did the persistent advertising campaign. What turned my head was the final product: a series that is everything the best police dramas should be.

It seems like every other series on television over the last decade has been a cop show, yet as much as I love the genre, it just isn’t what it used to be. It’s not that hard to kick in a door, pretend to be tough, or use some neat gadget to process evidence. What many of these shows are missing is real substance. The Chicago Code is a complete, complex police drama – the kind that doesn’t come around very often anymore.

That begins with the characters: fully formed individuals that we learn about both through their own eyes, and the eyes of others. By the end of the first hour, through some effective voiceovers and their interactions with each other, we have a real sense of who these people are, not just the inkling to be developed that comes in most pilots. At the core of the show are Teresa Colvin (Jennifer Beals), Chicago’s new female Superintendent of Police, and her ex-partner, Detective Jarek Wysocki (Jason Clarke). Both of them have compelling stories to tell, and they also have a complicated relationship between them worth exploring. Refreshingly, there’s no fawning over the fact that Teresa is a woman, and no hinting that she might end up in bed with Jarek, either. She’s a cop who just happens to be female, not a woman who just happens to be a cop, and she’s allowed to have a close relationship with a male colleague that is strictly platonic. Of all the female characters Shawn Ryan’s shows have featured, Teresa is on her way to becoming my favorite, thanks to that stereotype-breaking writing and an excellent, poised performance by Jennifer Beals, who likewise doesn’t need to posture to prove that she’s a tough woman; from how she carries herself alone, you know this isn’t a woman that you want to mess with.

It’s easy to see how Teresa meshed with Jarek, whose blunt, matter-of-fact attitude sees him changing partners every couple of days. This is the anti-TV cop. He’s not pretty and perfectly coiffed. He’s not going to have a witty one-liner at his disposal. He is not beyond reproach in his personal life (if I have one complaint about the pilot, it’s that said personal life reuses a subplot that we’ve seen before on both The Shield and The Unit), but we know that professionally, his commitment is not to be doubted. Jason Clarke is a great choice for the role; physically, he’s no pushover (she says from experience, as he made me look infantile when we crossed paths after the show’s recent TCA presentation) and that lends a certain intimidation factor to his character, but he also plays his role with an equal amount of conviction, just like Beals. In the wrong hands, Jarek could look like a self-absorbed, arrogant guy, but the way that Clarke handles him, we see only a man who’s confident because he can’t afford not to be. Clarke and Beals together make a wonderful team, with the audience able to believe in their characters because they believe in themselves, and in each other. We may not have a clue what’s going on, but we know that they do, and we know that we want to see how they put it all together.

The other major aspect that The Chicago Code gets right is that these are cops doing real detective work. They’re not standing around waiting for lab results and spitting out technical jargon (sorry, CSI), and they’re not out busting heads for no reason other than how cool it makes them look. When Jarek and his new partner Caleb Evers (Matt Lauria) are roughing up suspects, it’s because those suspects have given them a reason to do so. The police work in the pilot unfolds the way most police work does – through talking to people and doing honest legwork. There wasn’t any part of the casework in the pilot that made me feel as if it was put there simply for entertainment value. Not to mention that though we know there’s a bigger picture that isn’t going to be resolved for some time, I wasn’t seeing a show trying to make itself unnecessarily complicated. I was able to say, “Yes, that makes sense. That’s what I would do in that situation. I understand why that happened.”

The Chicago Code is also beautifully shot, with a much more filmic quality than The Shield, but still making me feel as if the show needs to be in Chicago and couldn’t take place anywhere else. On that note, I know that because of the promos and because it’s in the same genre, this show will undoubtedly be compared to The Shield. There are certainly similarities – cops with messy personal lives but committed professional ones, and content that has the potential to push FOX’s tighter restrictions – but I’d be loathe to see The Chicago Code have to live in the shadow of its predecessor. For one, when you compare a new series to something that’s so revered, you set up unrealistic expectations. For two, The Chicago Code deserves a chance to stand as its own entity. It’s the best new show on the midseason schedule.

That’s the funny part I was talking about. I finally get it now. I might have missed a lot of The Shield, and I wasn’t always completely sold on The Unit, but the moment I heard Shawn Ryan start talking about The Chicago Code, I had a feeling that it was going to be something special. Having seen it for myself, I’m definitely glad that this time, I’m on his side from the start.

The Chicago Code premieres next Monday, February 7, at 9 PM ET/PT on FOX. Stay tuned for complete coverage all season long.

Beals shines in 'The Chicago Code'

San Francisco drama fans are looking forward to Monday when Jennifer Beals (Flashdance, Lie to Me) returns to TV as Chicago police superintendent Teresa Colvin on FOX’s The Chicago Code.

Fans know Beals from the popular Showtime drama The L Word where she played Bette Porter for 6 seasons.

Like Bette, Teresa Colvin is determined and commands attention, but Beals adds the necessary grit and attitude to make Teresa believable as a tough-as-nails crime fighter.

“I thought it was an incredible character, a woman in this position, which has not been done before,” Beals told EW. “She is creating the template. What will that journey be like? You can’t be self-confident all the time. She certainly has been in the force long enough to have quite a bit of respect. But there is nobody who has gone before her, so she has to be on her game. She’s aware that if she makes mistakes, she ruins it for women after her.”

While Teresa’s goal is to clean up Chicago street by street, she often has to fight corruption at high levels, including going toe-to-toe with Alderman Ronin Gibbons (Delroy Lindo.) Teresa’s main ally is her former partner and friend Jarek Wysocki (Jason Clarke) who is on a mission to avenge his brother’s murder.

Many viewers are sure to tune in to the action packed premiere to experience the in-your-face nature of the show, but others are likely to watch solely for the fact that Beals' name is in the credits.

“Jennifer Beals continues to support the LGBT community even now that The L Word has been over for a while,” said San Francisco resident Grace Meyers. “So I’m going to return the favor and support her new show.”

Brett Allstair is also tuning in for Beals, but is also intrigued by the ride-along feeling the show seeks to produce.

“Jennifer is a really great actor and the show seems very realistic,” Oakland resident Allstair said. “There are a lot of crime shows on TV that are too light-hearted and fun that I don’t think represent how things really are.”

Check out sneak peeks of Beals in action on FOX.com.

The Chicago Code premieres Monday Feb. 7 at 9:00 p.m. on FOX.

ENTREVISTA
Jennifer Beals cracks the 'Code'
Nunn on One TELEVISION
by Jerry Nunn
2011-02-02


Jennifer Beals has appeared in more than 50 films over the years. She is beginning a new television-related endeavor on Fox, where she returns to her roots in The Chicago Code.

Windy City Times: Hello, Jennifer. I didn't realize you grew up on the South Side of Chicago.

Jennifer Beals: I did. I also lived on the North Side—everywhere but the West Side.

WCT: You don't currently live in Illinois now, do you?

Jennifer Beals: No I split my time between L.A. and Vancouver. My new show is a mid-season replacement so we will see if it is picked up for another 22 episodes and I will be in Chicago more.

WCT: It was great watching the new show The Chicago Code and seeing all the sights.

Jennifer Beals: Well, Chicago is really a character in the show, hence the title change.

WCT: What was it originally called?

Jennifer Beals: Ride-Along, the ride with the cops on their beat kind of thing.

WCT: I like the name Chicago Code much better.

Jennifer Beals: I do, too. I think it is more evocative of what the show is about. You are dealing with the power within the city and the code for the different levels and areas of the city.

WCT: You play the first female police chief named Teresa.

Jennifer Beals: She is a superintendent, as its called in Chicago.

WCT: Are you similar in ways to this character?

Jennifer Beals: Oh gosh, no. I am not nearly as driven or organized. I have to talk out loud a lot in order to get myself out the door, to remember where things are and get them together. I would aspire in many ways to be more like her but no I am very different. For example, I don't know how to use a gun. [Both laugh.] Nor can I be seen backhanding people in the street for various reasons.

WCT: Did you have a little training for this show then?

Jennifer Beals: There was some because it was so foreign to me. There were ride-alongs with Detective Folino, who was our technical advisor. He was terrific. We had meetings with various administrators. We realized there was a physicality that I needed so I started boxing a bit and doing more aggressive sports such as swimming and running.

WCT: That must be how you stay looking so young!

Jennifer Beals: I don't understand that. I don't feel like I look young. That is not how I experience myself; if someone experiences me like that then God bless them!

WCT: You have the hottest sidekick, Antonio, on the first episode.

Jennifer Beals: Isn't he so cute? He is a lovely actor. His name is Manny Montana and he was really wonderful to work with. There was no end to the amount of teasing that went on around the set. We just had a really great time with each other. I have the old-lady taste and he tried to help me be a little more hip with my music taste.

WCT: I just watched you in the [Denzel Washington movie] Book of Eli the other day.

Jennifer Beals: Oh, that was a really great experience.

WCT: Was that filmed out in the desert somewhere?

Jennifer Beals: New Mexico. I love the Hughes brothers. I would do anything for them. They are so smart and very creative, incredibly supportive of the people around them. I loved the character.

WCT: It was an interesting part to play.

Jennifer Beals: Working with Gary Oldman was so much fun. He made me laugh every day. He is dedicated to what he does. He gets in there and doesn't give up until he gets it. Frankly, Jason Clarke, from the Code, is very similar in that way. He's like a dog with a bone, you know?

WCT: I can imagine.

Jennifer Beals: He doesn't drop it until he's got it.

WCT: I interviewed and met your L Word sister, Pam Grier, last year.

Jennifer Beals: Oh you did? It was so exciting that she did that book. I am really proud of her.

WCT: It was hard for her to bring some of that up.

Jennifer Beals: It must have been. She has had such an amazing life. We had dinner one night years ago with my brother. He is a writer and told her that she had to do a book. We encouraged her to get on it.

WCT: Speaking of books, Judy Shepard told me you donated proceeds from your book to her foundation.

Jennifer Beals: Yes, I did. I really love the Mathew Shepard Foundation and the work that they do. I think she is such an extraordinary woman, leader and mother. I had their banner put on my float for the Thanksgiving Day parade in Chicago.

WCT: I saw you speak at the Human Rights event years ago. Your dedication to LGBT rights has been amazing over the years. Why do you feel so connected to us?

Jennifer Beals: I think after playing Bette Porter on The L Word for six years I felt like an honorary member of the community. They are not just gay issues. They affect everybody because they affect the fabric of our community. I am in a position to be helpful.

WCT: Well, it means a lot to us on our side.

Jennifer Beals: It just seems like a no-brainer. I don't understand ["Don't Ask, Don't Tell"]. I do understand that people are indoctrinated and they have their point of view but hopefully slowly but surely we can help change the paradigm. That's what I hope for and it's happening little by little. It's not easy.

WCT: What is the difference between The L Word set and the Chicago Code set?

Jennifer Beals: On The L Word set we were very aware of what was going on in the news and various issues. There was a time when I was on the Chicago Code set and in the van with teamsters and other cast members. There was an amazing milestone that happened for gay marriage over the summer and I was cheering in the car. I announced to everyone and they looked at me like I was crazy, like what do I care kind of thing? I was trying to explain how it affects everyone and then thought, "I am in another world now." I have a whole other battle here. We are not in Kansas anymore!

WCT: Definitely not in Dorothy's world anymore. [Both laugh.]

Jennifer Beals: No we are not. That was funny.

WCT: Did you ever think the movie Flashdance would have such a fan base so many years later?

Jennifer Beals: I don't think of my career in that way. I try to do one project at a time. I try to focus on the thing before me and not make it into a grand plan.

WCT: My friend wanted me to mention that he loved the short-lived television series 2000 Malibu Road [with Drew Barrymore].

Jennifer Beals: That's hilarious, thank you. You know what is fascinating? The guy that filmed the credits for 2000 Malibu Road was the director for the third episode of Chicago Code: Guy Ferland. It is a fantastic episode and actually my favorite. It is the payoff so see it.

WCT: I will. So you have different directors throughout the season?

Jennifer Beals: Yes and they each bring their own style. Guy has a very strong visual sense and a great script. It's a really interesting show because you are dealing with power and corruption, not just in the street, but in the halls of politics. You are making the connection between the two. That is something that's compelling. It's not just for the people Chicago, but I think Chicago does it best.

The Chicago Code rides into your televisions on Fox Monday, Feb. 7.

THE CHICAGO CODE 1.01 “Pilot” Advance Review

Air Date: Monday February 7, 2011 | Grade: A+




One of the rising stars among Hollywood executive producers over the past decade is Shawn Ryan. If you haven’t heard of him, you’ve probably heard of one of his shows: The Shield, The Unit, Lie to Me, and most recently, Terriers. I had the privilege of watching three episodes from his latest show for FOX, The Chicago Code, which will debut February 7th at 9/8c, and I can tell you this is another Shawn Ryan show you are going to want to tune in to!

One of the things Ryan has been praised for in the past is his rich characters and strong casting and The Chicago Code shines in both these areas. Probably the most magnetic character is politician Alderman Ronin Gibbons, played by British actor, Delroy Lindo. Lindo, a Tony-nominated Broadway actor, brings a gravitas to the small screen that is compelling and makes you feel like he is a worthy adversary. For me, the casting of the antagonist is just as important as the protagonist, because if the antagonist is too weak or too strong, it’s not worth my time to invest in it. Gibbons is a charming but powerful man who excels at talking out of both sides of his mouth and one is never sure what his motivation is in a given situation. His presence makes this not just your average cops versus corruption show.

Of course, the protagonists need to be well-cast too. The two leads are played by Jennifer Beals and Jason Clarke. I think the show does itself a huge favor in casting Beals in the role of Superintendent Teresa Colvin. As a Chicago native, her accent is genuine and she comes across as someone who’s familiar with the local lingo. She is a very strong presence on-screen, but is just vulnerable enough that it’s not overbearing. Ryan has done well writing strong female characters in the past and Colvin is yet another audiences can relate to and root for even when she messes up.

On the flip-side, Clarke brings his ruggedly handsome Aussie self fully into the role of Jarek Wysocki. It’s easily apparent why Wysocki is a legend on the police force, but I like that at the end of the day he sees himself as just another copper out there doing the best he can. His personal loss is part of who he is, but revenge doesn’t consume him, and he relates well with the people of the city. The chemistry between the two leads is very dynamic and engaging for the viewers, though I get more of a deep friendship vibe than a romantic one.

Supporting the two leads are the fringe characters: Caleb Evers (Matt Lauria), Isaac Joiner (Todd Williams), Liam Hennessey (Billy Lush), and Jarek’s niece, Vonda Wysocki (Devin Kelley). These could easily slip into the token roles usually assigned to the supporting cast in a cop drama show, but they aren’t. Each of them has a history that helps define them, and personality traits that go beyond the generic to make them fully-developed characters. They are also well-cast. There’s one interrogation scene that showcases how well Clarke and Lauria play off of one another, and what strong actors they are in their own right.

Aside from the strong casting, writing, and acting, there’s another character that makes me want to see more of this show: the city of Chicago. The show is shot entirely on location in Chicago and its surrounding environs and the director makes full use of it. I love that the actors are driving in real cars – as opposed to ones with blue-screen windows – on real Chicago streets, and the long shots don’t have fake-looking background plates where palm trees had to be scrubbed out. The cinematography is amazing whether you’re following a high-speed chase or watching the characters meet in the middle of the night by a familiar landmark. Scenes are shot on, over, and under the El train without being too obnoxious about pointing it out in the dialogue and the sweeping cityscape shots make me anxious to see them in high-def. Shawn Ryan is from Illinois and I think it’s wonderful that he’s giving back to the city in this way.

Overall, I love what I’ve seen of The Chicago Code. It has smart writing, strong acting, plots that glue you to your seat for the full hour, and makes the best use of voice-overs I’ve seen in a long time. The intrigue is sometimes three and four layers deep and that the story is a serialized one, but not so complicated that you can’t keep track of things from week to week. The fact that it’s more of a detective show versus a forensics show is also appealing, because there are enough great (and not-so-great) forensic shows out there already. I really hope viewers give this one a shot because even beyond the pilot, this is an impressive story I’m now anxious to see unfold. The Chicago Code is on Mondays at 9/8c.

ENTREVISTA
Area Code
Jennifer Beals returns to 312 in Fox’s new series.
By Novid Parsi

Photo: Kharen Hill/FOX; Photo Illustration: Jamie DiVecchio Ramsay

Like her character on Fox’s new series, The Chicago Code, Jennifer Beals is a native Chicagoan. Also like Teresa Colvin, Beals is the daughter of a white mom and a black dad. And as with Teresa, the actor’s father owned a store (“I didn’t tell the writers that,” she says). Perhaps most like her policewoman role, Beals, speaking by phone, exudes an aura that suggests she calls (and fires) the shots. The alum of Yale, Flashdance and The L Word plays Chicago’s first female police chief, out to right the city’s wrongs, in the drama from The Shield’s Shawn Ryan, premiering Monday 7.

As research for this role, you went on ride-alongs with Chicago police. What did you learn?
I was in a car with a detective, and we were the first ones on a scene where a man had been shot and was bleeding towards unconsciousness on someone’s front porch. I was able to see how they set up a crime scene, and we were able to follow the trail of blood for almost two blocks.

I imagine that was the first time you saw someone shot and bleeding?
No, it was not the first time I’ve seen someone shot [Laughs], unfortunately.

When was the first time?
In my neighborhood on the South Side of Chicago, and then I spent some time in Haiti in 1989 photographing the elections where you would see all kinds of heinous things. But it was the first time that I became aware of how people are so uncooperative with the police, that there’s a group of 30 people there and at least five of them know who shot this man. It’s a gang-related incident, and none of them will come forward, and so the cycle just keeps happening.

Could you tell me more about that time when you were a kid?
Um, not really, because it involves people who may not want to [Laughs] have me tell that story. It was a pretty decent neighborhood [at 82nd Street and Indiana Avenue], but there were things that happened.

Being the only daughter in a family of three kids—does that influence your approach to Teresa as a woman in a male-heavy landscape?
Oh, I’m very comfortable among men, and in college most of my friends were men. Working on The L Word was a transition, and it was exciting to be surrounded by women, it was exciting to learn a different way of processing. [The Chicago Code] is a very testosterone set.

You suggested to The L Word’s creator that she make your character biracial. Did you also suggest that Teresa be biracial?
We talked about it, I didn’t suggest. I said it would be interesting in terms of racial politics, an interesting way to approach it in the 21st century, but I said please just let me know either way what you’re gonna do so I know what I am, who I am.

What difference does that make for you when playing this character?
You’re aware of different points of view. It affords you a certain empathy that you may not have if you don’t inhabit both sides.

What was that like for you growing up, to have both black and white families in Chicago?
Going to the Francis W. Parker School, it was kind of irrelevant. Class was more of an issue than race. There’s a code, even among kids who are all entitled, of who has the most recent pair of Nikes or who has the pink Lacoste shirt.

Where were you in relation to that economic divide?
We didn’t have any money, but I did have quite a few friends who did, and I ended up getting their hand-me-downs which weren’t hand-me-downs at all because they had tags still on them. I wasn’t raised with the idea that having money was important. It was much more important what was inside your brain; that will take you a lot farther than a really nice pair of Top-Siders.

I was struck by how overt The Chicago Code is about its premise of corruption in Chicago. What do you make of that?
What did you make of it? You live in Chicago.

It’s something people say about the city all the time, but it’s noteworthy that this new TV series is saying it so directly, so unapologetically.
I just think it makes for good drama, and everyday you can look in a Chicago newspaper and find a story. It’s not stretching the truth.

Any story come to mind?
Oh, at a certain point the story becomes the same story over and over again. That’s part of the code, but for every corrupter, you also have a reformer.

The show’s premiering the night after the Super Bowl. Were you raised a Bears fan?
Oh my God, you have no idea. In the cold dark years when nothing was going on, we went to Green Bay for the games, freezing to death, only surviving by virtue of my mother’s most excellent chili we would clutch like hot potatoes amongst the young Irish.

The Chicago Code premieres on Fox Monday 7 at 8pm.

Jennifer Beals Tackles Recycling and a New Show on Fox

On Fox's new show The Chicago Code, premiering February 7, Jennifer Beals plays the no-nonsense Police Superintendent of Chicago, fighting corruption and City Hall.

In real life Beals, known for iconic performances in Flashdance and The L Word, is also fighting City Hall in Chicago. "Chicago doesn't recycle," she says emphatically. "At the Art Institute of Chicago -- one of my favorite museums -- they won't let you bring in plastic bottles and they don't have any recycling containers. You just have to throw them away. How can that be?" Beals, a native of Chicago, is talking to the Illinois Governor's office to see what can be done. "The notion of throwing out a plastic bottle is so awful to me," she confesses. "There is a real correlation between art and architecture and recycling. But my friends are cynical, saying, 'Good luck with that recycling thing.'" She has thought it through, though, and talks about ways to make recycling financially feasible for all.

Jennifer Beal's character on The Chicago Code is similarly strategic. Superintendent Teresa Colvin is smart, focused and dedicated to rooting out the mob bosses who run the city. "Hopefulness based in reality is something that Teresa nourishes," says Beals thoughtfully. Both the actress and the character reflect the city in which they grew up and which they both appear to love. Beal reflects, "Chicago is two opposites -- a brazen earthbound confident persona of a city, not dependent on either coast. But it's also very sophisticated and connected to the rest of the world. And people have a great deal of access to their political system." The show is shot in Chicago, a place Beals knows well having grown up on both the South Side and North Side, or "Cubs and Socks" as she puts it.

Portraying a woman leading the Chicago police force required a great deal of research on Jennifer's part: "I tried to imagine what it would be like to be superintendent here. I asked male officers what it would take for them to accept a woman superintendent. They said it was important for me to have come up in the system and to truly understand it." And, she adds, "It was a balancing act every day. Teresa leads with a more masculine leadership approach. She's not as inclusive as she could be, not as nurturing. She goes in with guns drawn. I had to figure out how she could stay close to her team without seeming weak or sexually inappropriate."

The show is complex, character-driven and smart. And Beals' character has some fascinating interactions with her former beat partner played by actor Jason Clarke. "It's interesting to see how she negotiates power," comments Beals. "She and her ex-partner clearly respect each other and will tell each other the truth even if it hurts. They also clearly love each other but you're not sure how."

Because Chicago's backroom politics are part of the action, the city doesn't come off in the best light. But Jennifer Beals says that's fine with her, "Any Chicago native who thinks Chicago is cast in a golden light has lived under a rock." And yet she clearly loves the city and was excited to spend time in her hometown while filming the first 13 episodes, spending time with her mother and childhood friends. The show is written and executive-produced by The Shield's Shawn Ryan, who grew up in Rockford, IL.

Beals laughs when asked if her fiercely loyal fans from Showtime's The L Word will flock to see her on a cop show. "I don't know, but I think they'll like the uniform," she says. Now that the first episodes of the show are completed, Beals in busy reading scripts, swimming, caring for her daughter and learning to play the piano. She is also, she says, researching recycling.

La nueva canción triste de Chicago
'The Chicago Code' es la nueva serie de policías y ladrones ambientada en la misma ciudad que 'Canción triste de Hill Street'. El creador de 'The Shield' regresa con una propuesta alabada por la crítica
TONI GARCÍA - Barcelona - 04/02/2011


En 2002 un escritor llamado Shawn Ryan (1966, Illinois) presentaba The Shield, una serie de policías y ladrones donde al espectador le costaba distinguir entre unos y otros. Los defensores de la ley en The Shield eran por un lado asesinos corruptos y por el otro tipos empeñados en mantener su vida a flote, hombres con un curioso concepto del honor y la lealtad, capaces de saltar todas las líneas sin pestañear. En la extraña dicotomía del agente Vic McKey (encarnado magistralmente por Michael Chiklis) y su escuadrón de asalto, latía lo mejor de las series policíacas de toda la vida y -al mismo tiempo- el afán por meter al espectador en una bajada a los infiernos. Cámara agitada, como si la manejara un operador asustado en medio de un terremoto, y diálogos que los personajes se lanzaban unos a otros a modo de daga, ayudaban a situarse en esa atmósfera de tonos amarillentos, un paraíso para la ambigüedad donde nadie se libraba de acabar pringado.



Una imagen promocional de la serie 'The Chicago Code'-

Ryan completó siete temporadas de The shield con la inestimable ayuda de Kurt Sutter, otro guionista amante de las emociones fuertes (como demuestra día a día con su última creación, Hijos de la anarquía -cuya tercera temporada se emite en Fox crime, dial 19 de Digital + -, una serie que linda en contundencia con la de McKey y sus compinches) y convirtió a su criatura en un producto de visión obligada para los amantes de la televisión sin cocinar, sin códigos, sin estereotipos. Su última entrega, con Clark Johnson (The wire) manejando la cámara es ya un clásico, y pocos en el mundo de la televisión recuerdan un desenlace tan salvaje, desesperanzador y brutal.

Cuando The Shield llegó a su fin Ryan se tomó un pequeño descanso, Sutter optó por darse cuerda con sus propios proyectos y por unos meses nadie oyó hablar de ninguno de los dos.

En 2010 el primero ideó y produjo una serie llamada Terriers, a las antípodas de su último proyecto pero con la misma fiereza en situaciones y diálogos y un gran trabajo en los personajes, y por supuesto, con polis (estos bastante buenos) y criminales (bastante malos). Lamentablemente la serie, magnífica, no llegó a consolidarse y fue cancelada al final de la primera temporada.

En realidad el final de Terriers no inquietó lo más mínimo al creador de The Shield que ya andaba trabajando en otra misión: The Chicago code.

La serie retrata las andanzas de una superintendente femenina (Jennifer Beals, vista en The L Word) empeñada en derrumbar en el reinado de Ronin Gibbons (el siempre impresionante Delroy Lindo) un concejal podrido hasta el alma. Para desenmascarar a Gibbons la jefaza cuenta con la ayuda del detective Jarek Wysocki (otro actor de bemoles, Jason Clarke), un policía que considera su pistola una extensión de su brazo y cuya integridad va más allá de las convenciones. Naturalmente, las cosas van a complicarse rápidamente, y es que perseguir a un monstruo tiene sus peajes.

Ryan declaraba recientemente a la web macleans.ca que "este show es en parte una serie sobre casos policíacos pero primordialmente trata de una historia en marcha en la que se habla sobre la corrupción en la ciudad (...) y sobre estos dos héroes decididos a tumbar un sistema que lleva años funcionando (...) aunque no creo que el espectador se conecte a esta serie buscando historias sino buscando personajes".

De momento las críticas no podrían ser más positivas e incluso las más tibias, como la de The Hollywood Reporter, reconocen el inmenso potencial de la serie y la fortaleza de sus personajes. De hecho, la revista Entertainment Weekly la consideraba en su número especial dedicado a al nueva temporada televisiva uno de los shows imprescindibles mientras que la mayoría de medios especializados consideran The Chicago code una apuesta segura para Fox, la cadena que ha apostado -de nuevo- por Ryan después de los buenos resultados de The Shield.

La última gran serie ambientada en la ciudad que convirtió a Michael Jordan en un dios se llamaba Canción triste de Hill Street, como referente toda una garantía. Veremos si los resultados están a la altura.
