On Monday, September 10, I had the pleasure of attending NBC’s 4th annual One Chicago Day in Chicago, Illinois.
The event, held at the Lagunitas Brewing Company, gave the press the opportunity to chat with the stars, key crew, and producers behind Dick Wolf‘s holy trinity of television: “Chicago P.D.,” “Chicago Fire,” and “Chicago Med.”
It was an exciting day filled with red carpet interviews and junket-style interviews!
I spoke with over 20 amazing actors, actresses, producers, and writers.
Following a full day of interviews and a delicious lunch, the press was given the opportunity to tour the sets of all three shows at Cinespace Chicago Film Studios.
I was as excited as a kid playing with reindeer at the North Pole on Christmas Eve.
“Chicago Fire” Set Visit
Check out a few photos below:
After touring the set of “Chicago Fire,” I stopped by Molly’s to have a drink with the fellas: Joe Cruz (Joe Minoso), Christopher Herrmann (David Eigenberg), and Mouch (Christian Stolte).
“Chicago Med” Set Visit
We headed over to the set of “Chicago Med,” where I was taught the proper way to scrub in like a surgeon preparing for surgery.
After sliding into my scrubs, I entered the operating room where I was greeted by Dr. Connor Rhodes (Colin Donnell) and a (fake) patient, who went to the crossroads with Uncle Charles.

“Chicago P.D.” Set Visit
Last, but certainly not least, we made our way to the set of “Chicago P.D.”
See pics below:
After an informative and absolutely entertaining tour, I joined the police force, suited up in my bulletproof vest and hit the superhero stance with Officer Kim Burgess (Marina Squerciati) and Detective Kevin Atwater (LaRoyce Hawkins).
What a wonderful time!
Later that evening, press and talent attended a One Chicago afterparty at Barrio. More on that later…
One Chicago kicks off on Wednesday, September 26 with “Chicago Med” at 8 p.m., “Chicago Fire” at 9 p.m. and “Chicago P.D.” at 10 p.m.
I pre-screened the season premieres of each show and you definitely don’t want to miss it!
