Your First Look At Chicago Fire

By Samantha Abernethy in Arts & Entertainment on May 14, 2012 7:00PM

Chicago Fire is a new NBC drama about the adventures of Chicago's Firehouse 55 — or maybe it's just about hot firefighters, we couldn't see past their rugged, sooty good looks. We're guessing that since this show was created by Dick Wolf, ruler of the Law & Order empire, it will have a longer life than The Chicago Code. Judging by these videos, the acting won't measure up to, say, Boss. They even let Mayor Rahm Emanuel on for a cameo.

There's one thing that is bothering us about this, though. Did the creators know about the soccer team when they chose the name?
