"Chicago Fire," the newest series by Dick Wolf of "Law & Order," is set to make it television debut on Wednesday, Oct. 10.
In his latest program, Wolf attempts to put his talents to use in a brand new city. The highly-anticipated drama's concept was initially created by Michael Brandt and Derek Haas, the men behind "2 Fast 2 Furious."

Wolf spoke to the Hollywood Reporter about his intentions for the one-hour NBC show.
"What we're trying to do here is a classic, adult, NBC platinum drama... Let's put it this way, there are very few franchises or very few areas that give you the opportunity to really explore character," he said.
"Chicago Fire" revolves around the lives of firefighters and paramedics that work at the Chicago Fire Department, featuring the stations at Battalion 25, Engine 51, Squad 3 and Truck 81.
The pilot episode begins with a co-worker's unexpected death, which leads to a wedge between male leads Matthew Casey (Jesse Spencer) and Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney), who point the finger at each other for what transpired.
Although the show isn't yet garnering comparisons to Denis Leary's past firefighter hit "Rescue Me," it's considered interpersonal with more of a conventional dialogue. The action sequences are also believed to be more realistic than most of the regular dramas currently on air.
Gabriela Dawson (Monica Raymond) and Leslie Shay (Lauren German) take on the female lead roles as they work in an ambulance together. Much like Wolf's past programming, the women do appear model-esque and beautiful while the male characters come in a variety of physical attributes.
The cinematography of the city of Chicago is nicely portrayed while the real life-like action should deliver the audience a true fire house experience, right down to the minutest of details.
"Chicago Fire" premieres its first episode on Wednesday, Oct. 10, at 10 p.m. ET on NBC.
