While "Chicago Fire" isn't exactly burning up the Nielsen's ratings list, the Dick Wolf drama does turn out solid numbers and is white hot in Chicago.

And now next Wednesday's show sets the stage for a spinoff, "Chicago P.D." The description reads a bit like "Hatfields and McCoys" or cowboys vs. ranchers. But the two sides of the police force -- beat cops and Intelligence Unit -- find common ground patrolling the streets of Chicago.

Leading the Intelligence Unit is Sergeant Hank Voight (Jason Beghe) who mentors Detective Antonio Dawson (Jon Seda) despite his troubles with the boss.
