PASADENA, Calif. — NBC’s Chicago-set, first-responder dramas took the stage at the TV critics’ winter press tour from 4:30 to 5 p.m. Pacific time (6:30 to 7 p.m. Chicago time) Friday.


Check out the latest stories about “Chicago Fire” and “Chicago P.D.”

Firehouse 51 was represented by stars Jesse Spencer (Lt. Matt Casey), Taylor Kinney (Lt. Kelly Severide) and Eamonn Walker (Chief Boden).

“P.D.’s” team consisted of Sophia Bush (rookie federal tast forcer Erin Lindsay) and Jesse Lee Soffer (Jay Halstead).

Rounding out the talent pool was none other than the creator of both shows, veteran TV producer Dick Wolf (“Law & Order”).

I live blogged the panel below. Now I’m off to track down the cast to get answers to as many of your questions as possible. My interview with showrunner Matt Olmstead is set for Tuesday, so I’ll be writing separate posts later from these fan-generated Q&As.

And if you missed it, here’s an earlier story from Friday about a possible “Chicago Med” spinoff.
