Take the guys behind such history-making, no, scratch that, epic hits like Law & Order, NYPD Blue and 2 Fast 2 Furious and what do you get? Just a little (or should we say potentially huge) show like NBC’s new drama, Chicago P.D.
Getting us in the know, actress Sophia Bush — who plays Detective Erin Lindsay on the show — stopped by Wake Up! With Taylor this Wednesday morning. So how would Bush describe the show? It’s a “really intense” drama series that basically gives you cinema-like quality right from your very own couch.
“Our show, it’s a big-ticket drama but it’s developed for characters like a cable show,” Bush said. “So you’re getting movie-quality action, but you’re getting gritty, messy, exploring all the grey areas between black and white, right and wrong like you typically only get on cable. So it’s kind of a dream job.”
Speaking of dream jobs, Bush pretty much has it all. Her boss made, as Strecker calls it, “every single episode” of Law & Order. “I can’t believe I get to say this sentence out loud: I was doing press with Dick Wolf yesterday,” Bush said. “And sometimes I look over and I’m like oh my god he’s actually my boss! He’s amazing.”
What else was on topic? Just about everything from “Chiberia” (the nickname natives from Chicago gave their current sub-freezing temps), to filming in the Windy City, to why a New Yorker called Bush the “toughest broad in the world.” Listen in on the clip below to find out why.
Don’t forget to tune in to the premiere of Chicago P.D. tonight on NBC and catch Wake Up! With Taylor weekdays at 7 am on SiriusXM Stars.
