Episode Summary: Chicago PD Season 1 Episode 2 “Wrong Side of the Bars” – Antonio’s (Jon Seda) son was kidnapped and he has a feeling the Columbian drug gang is to blame. Pulpo (guest star Arturo Del Puerto), the Columbian gang leader, is being held in jail and suggests his release may trigger the release of Diego (guest star Zach Garcia). During the investigation, Halstead (Jesse Lee Soffer) learns some new information about Lindsay (Sophia Bush). Voight (Jason Beghe) offers Antonio a new approach to get information on Diego’s whereabouts. Archie Kao, Elias Koteas, LaRoyce Hawkins, Marina Squerciati, and Patrick Flueger also star. America Olivo, Monica Raymund, Kurt Naebig, and Robert Wisdom guest star.
District 21 of the Chicago Police Department is made up of two distinctly different groups: The uniformed cops who patrol the beat and deal with street crimes, and the intelligence unit, the team that combats the city’s major offenses, such as organized crime, drug trafficking and high-profile murders. Leading the intelligence team is Sgt. Hank Voight (Jason Beghe), a man not against skirting the law in the pursuit of justice.
Demanding and tough, only those who can take the heat survive under Voight’s command. Take Det. Antonio Dawson (Jon Seda), for example. Despite a troubled history with his boss, Dawson has ambitions of running the unit. If that means facing off against Voight every day, he’ll persevere. From the street cops with dreams of moving up to the elite crew who are already in, “life on the job” is a daily challenge.
Dick Wolf, Matt Olmstead, Michael Brandt, Derek Haas, Peter Jankowski, Danielle Gelber and director Joe Chappelle serve as executive producers. “Chicago PD” is a production of Universal Television and Wolf Films.
