American Cinematographer - April 2017 - 66
Lisa Wiegand, ASC reteams with
longtime collaborators for the
procedural- and courtroom-drama
series Chicago Justice.
By Matt Mulcahey
elevision creator Dick Wolf 's universe of Windy Citybased dramas for NBC and Universal Television began
with Chicago Fire, expanded with spinoffs Chicago P.D.
and Chicago Med, and has grown again with the recent
premiere of Chicago Justice. The series follows the exploits of
the Cook County state's attorney's office, led by prosecutor
Peter Stone (played by Philip Winchester). Stone is the son of
Michael Moriarty's Ben Stone character from Wolf 's flagship
Law & Order series; like that long-running show, Chicago
Justice divides its time between the litigators - including
Stone's boss, Mark Jefferies (Carl Weathers) - and investigators, the latter of whom include Laura Nagel ( Joelle Carter)
and Chicago P.D. transplant Antonio Dawson ( Jon Seda).
The show marked a return to Dick Wolf 's Chicago fold
