Chicago Code

27 Jan

If you live in Chicago and have left your house in the past 6 months, you’ve mostly likely run into the taping of Fox’s new cop show, Chicago Code.  There’s even a big chance you worked on the series since it employed an bajillion city residents.  I’ve had the great pleasure of helping out in the costume department under costume designer Sue Kaufman (The Shield, Prison Break) and costume supervisor Gretchen Grain, who I can’t say enough good things about.  To say these ladies are hard workers in a vast understatement.  Their work ethic was contagious and I felt honored to be in their company.  This was the first television series I have ever worked on and was blown away by all that goes into making a one hour drama.  In print and television commercials (my normal gig) a 15 hour day is considered a good chunk of time.  If you’re working on a one hour series, consider this normal, 5 days a week for 6 months.  Needless to say, the crew who slaved over this for Chicago Code’s entire taping (I was only freelance) must be jumping up and down in excitement to finally see it air on Fox February 7th.  The series already has high hopes in being a success coming from director Sean Ryan (The Shield, Terriers) and starring great actors such as Jennifer Beals and Jason Clarke.

Here’s a trailer for the series in case you haven’t already seen the commercials on Fox.

Here’s the promo featurette:

Make sure you tune in February 7th at 9/8 Central so we can all work another season!

    Looks like it could be successful and spawn more seasons and viewers.

    Ok, so would you have any clue where I could find the necklace that Jennifer’s character wears?

    This show is the best new show on TV.
    I am interested in knowing where the character “Alderman Ronin Gibbons” gets his wardrobe from? Particularly his flashy dress shirts and ties

      A lot of his clothes were purchases on the south side of Chicago in smaller boutiques.
