Can't get enough the drama and hot stars of Chicago Fire Chicago PD and now Chicago Med? Funny or Die has your latest fix, Chicago Sanitation.

The brilliant parody video pokes fun at Dick Wolf's trio of Chicago dramas with a trailer for a new show about Chicago's garbage collectors. There's a lot more drama and romance in the Department of Streets and Sanitation than we ever expected and the dialogue is spot on:

  • "You sort garbage better than anyone on this team. Why can't you sort out your life?"
  • -Wife: "You never have time for this family!"
    -Husband: "The garbage doesn't wait, babe. It needs to be picked up every day."
  • "Everything I did, I did to keep this city clean!"

Of course there will be one of Dick Wolf's signature crossover specials. A citywide fire hits and all of Chicago's departments will have to pitch in to help, including our sanitation friends.

If you wait until the end, they name other Chicago-inspired shows (we think) we'd love to see: Chicago Teamsters Union, Chicago Pizza Boys, Chicago Records Bureau and Chicago PTA:
