One of my favorite TV dramas is “Chicago P.D.” Actually I like the whole Chicago brand including “Chicago Med” and “Chicago Fire.” All of them return Nov. 11 on NBC.

I’ve been anxiously waiting to see how this eighth season of “Chicago P.D.” will play out and especially what’s going to happen to LaRoyce Hawkins, who stars as officer Kevin Atwater. Hawkins is a Chicago native and is a perfect choice for this role and he has really come into his own as the show’s storyline has developed.
Fans of last season’s show knows that Hawkins blew the whistle on another officer and now a group of cops are mad and gunning for him for standing against the blue wall. The writing of “Chicago P.D.” is outstanding too and so is the entire cast from police captain Henry "Hank" Voight (Jason Beghe) to Amy Morton, Jesse Lee Soffer, Jon Seda, Marina Squerciati, Patrick John Flueger and Tracy Spiridakos.

Tuesday night’s episode of “Chicago P.D.” is titled “Fighting Ghosts” and has “Hank” (Beghe) wondering if he’s cut out for a new form of policing.
Chicago P.D. airs Nov. 11 at 10 p.m. (ET/PT) on NBC. It is must-see TV.

On a related note. Hall of Fame producer Dick Wolf and Wolf Entertainment have signed a new five-year deal to remain at Universal Television, a division of NBCUniversal Content Studios, his studio home for the past 36 years. As part of Wolf's new pact and in an unprecedented show of support for four of its highly popular dramas, NBC has given three-year pickups to its "Chicago" brand with "Chicago Fire," "Chicago P.D." and "Chicago Med" - as well as fan favorite and record-breaker "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," the longest-running live-action primetime program in TV history, now in its 21st season.

Wolf's deal comes on the heels of his recent pact with NBCUniversal's streaming service Peacock, where Wolf's extensive library - including both the "Law & Order" and "Chicago" franchises - will be available for users.
