Dick Wolf has made his fortune and fame dramatizing the stories and lives of police officers. Now, as executive producer, he's exploring another kind of public servant.
"Chicago Fire" is a drama about the heroic people who work in Firehouse 51: the firefighters, the rescue squad and the paramedics. Sadly, the show doesn't reinvent the genre the way the original "Law & Order" did or even advance the genre the way "Southland" did. But it's a solid show with potential.
