"Chicago Justice"
Preview Wednesday, March 1 at 10PM ET/PT on NBC
 
          NBC will offer audiences a preview of “Chicago Justice,” the newest installment of superproducer Dick Wolf’s highly successful Chicago franchise, on Wednesday, March 1 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. The preview will immediately follow a crossover event between “Chicago Fire” at 8 p.m. and “Chicago P.D.” at 9 p.m. that is set to introduce a storyline which seamlessly flows into “Chicago Justice.” The premiere of “Chicago Justice” will air in its normal 9 p.m. Sunday timeslot beginning March 5.

         Just like their brethren in the Chicago P.D., the State’s Attorney’s dedicated team of prosecutors and investigators navigate heated city politics and controversy head-on, while fearlessly pursuing justice. As they take on the city’s high-stakes and often media-frenzied cases, they must balance public opinion, power struggles within the system and their unwavering passion for the law.

          On the season preview, "Fake," Peter Stone, his team, and investigator Dawson try to bring a warehouse arsonist to justice, and the suspect's high-powered attorney tries to get his client acquitted.

 

         At the center of the show is prosecutor Peter Stone (Philip Winchester), the ambitious Assistant State’s Attorney and Deputy Chief of the Special Prosecutions Bureau. Relentless in his quest for justice, it’s more than a job for Stone, it’s a purpose. Son of renowned New York City District Attorney Ben Stone (from “Law & Order”), Stone is shooting at a target that only he can see. This often puts him in direct conflict with Mark Jefferies (Carl Weathers), the Cook County State’s Attorney who sees the world through a political prism. While Jefferies believes that a good prosecutor gives the jury and the public a clear, clean and digestible narrative, Stone is convinced the law isn’t always best served in a sound bite. Together with their team, Stone and Jefferies strive to bring some much-needed justice to the city of Chicago.

          The team also includes Assistant State’s Attorney Anna Valdez (Monica Barbaro), a passionate newcomer, who’s more flexible and willing to bend the rules to get the right result; Laura Nagel (Joelle Carter), a tough-as-nails State’s Attorney Investigator that sees each case through the eyes of the victim; and Antonio Dawson (Jon Seda, formerly on “Chicago P.D.”), a level-headed and by-the-book detective turned Chief Investigator.
