Sept. 29, 2014 — Dick Wolf’s Universal Television/NBC series “Chicago Fire,” “Chicago P.D.” and “Law & Order: SVU” will be united during a major three-part crossover airing Nov. 11-12.
The three series will share a storyline about a child pornography ring that stretches from Chicago to New York and will arc over three episodes, beginning with “Chicago Fire” (Tuesday, Nov. 11, 10 p.m. ET/PT) and continuing on “Law & Order: SVU” and “Chicago P.D.” (Wednesday, Nov. 12, 9 and 10 p.m., respectively).
“Warren Leight (“SVU” showrunner) and Matt Olmstead (“Chicago Fire”/“Chicago P.D.” showrunner) are two of the best writers in the business. We wanted to figure out a way to create a crime that connects all three shows. Warren, Matt and I came up with a story that was big and unique enough to transit to all three,” Wolf explained.
Each of the three shows opened their seasons to strong ratings, with “Chicago Fire” averaging a 2.6 rating, 8 share in adults 18-49 and 9.1 million viewers overall Tuesday, Sept. 23 to match its second-highest rating ever in 18-49 and deliver its #2 total-viewer result to date. “Law & Order: SVU” debuted Wednesday, Sept. 24 with a 2.2/6 in 18-49 and 10.1 million viewers overall, making it the show’s most-watched season premiere since 2007. “Chicago P.D.” followed with a 1.9/6 in 18-49 and 8.5 million viewers overall to win the hour among ABC, CBS and NBC in total viewers with the show’s biggest overall audience since its series premiere on Jan. 8.
All three shows are produced by Wolf Films in association with Universal Television. Dick Wolf, Matt Olmstead, Michael Brandt, Derek Haas, Danielle Gelber and Peter Jankowski are executive producers of both “Chicago” series. Dick Wolf, Warren Leight, Julie Martin, Jonathan Starch and Peter Jankowski are executive producers of “Law & Order: SVU.”
