How do you get the best results in this sensitive and challenging environment where you've got a bunch of people telling you you're doing it the wrong way?Speaking about the ensemble, there were a couple changes that happened over the summer, the first one being Sophia Bush's exit. There's nothing specific on the table right now so I don't really have a comment on that right now.Replacing series co-creator and longtime showrunner Matt Olmstead, Eid comes to , on which he served as showrunner for season 18. Making sure the series more accurately reflects the issues the real-life Chicago Police Department is currently facing: In 2016, there were 4,338 reported shootings and 754 reported homicides, the highest numbers in 20 years, which many have blamed on the Chicago Police Department."There's a lot going on there socially, politically, certainly as it relates to what's going on with the police department," he tells about just how that will play out onscreen, the new dynamics within the Intelligence Unit and the "personal, emotional issues" facing Det.How will a character who so frequently bends the rules react to with this new age of reform in the department?As a policeman, he's going to have to react to it in a way that allows him to do his job and protect the city and do what his goal has always been: to protect the city and get the bad guy.At the end of the day, she was a great character and a great actor so I think those are things How does that impact the rest of the Intelligence Unit?
Bush and Raharinosy — a partner in East 23rd Street pingpong club SPi N with Susan Sarandon and her ex-boy toy, Jonathan Bricklin — have been dating for four months, and things have progressed to the point that Barbara’s planning to introduce Franck this week to her mother, former first lady Laura Bush, we’re told.Were you involved in those discussions about her exit at all? There was some talk of her coming back this season so will she make a return appearance? Would you say the door is open if she wanted to come back at some point?There's a lot of people involved in these decisions above my pay grade that's probably a question for Dick and NBC.The chief of police and superintendent has designated an independent auditor to oversee the police department and that independent auditor will be Mykelti Williamson [who played Voight's old partner Lt. So we're literally introducing an authoritative figure who is charged with overseeing the Chicago Police Department and making sure it operates in an appropriate way and in conformity with new guidelines and regulations.You spoke about the moral ambiguity of the show, and Voight (Jason Beghe) specifically comes to mind.We did as much research as we could into this but at the end of the day, it's still a television show. It's not meant to be a documentary on the Chicago police department so we may take liberties at times for dramatic purposes.
