There’s hardly anyone out there who’s never seen an episode of the long running show Law & Order, and today the show’s legendary creator Dick Wolf joined us to talk about his new show and book!
Dick’s new show Chicago Fire (Wednesdays on NBC at 10) is growing in popularity every week, and he’s proud to announce that NBC will keep the show around for another season.
“The hook is in on the show. The audience really loves the show,” said Dick. “The audience is growing, and I’m enormously proud of it.”
In addition to being the creator of Law & Order and Chicago Fire, Dick had his hands in the production on Miami Vice and Hill Street, which he says helped him determine how to make a great cop show.
His long list of credits also helped make an easy transition into writing his very first novel titled The Intercept, which is out now.
“On 9/11 we were two weeks away from starting principle photography on a five-hour mini series for NBC called Terror, which opened in an Al Qaeda training camp…” explained Dick.
However, after the events of 9/11, the show stopped production. But Dick used his experience creating cop shows and combined real-life events to create a riveting detective mystery in The Intercept. The tale follows NYPD detective Jeremy Fisk as he takes action to stop another planned terrorist attack just days before a 4th of July celebration and dedication at the new One World Trade Center.
