Fox sets Feb. bow for ‘Chicago Code’

Shawn Ryan cop drama to get Super Bowl push

Fox’s “The Chicago Code,” the Shawn Ryan cop drama formerly known as “Ride-Along,” will bow at 9 p.m. Feb. 7, the night after Fox airs the Super Bowl.

As a result, new skein — which Fox began promoting during the World Series — will get a huge push during football’s big game. “The Chicago Code” centers on cops in the Windy City.

“Chicago Code” will fill the void left by “Lie to Me,” which will have completed its 13-episode run. (Fox says the show will “return at a later date” but hasn’t announced a back-nine pickup.) The previous Fox show to launch Mondays at 9 was “Lone Star,” which was yanked after just two episodes in September.

“The Chicago Code” stars Jason Clarke as a veteran cop; Jennifer Beals as Chicago’s first female police superintendent; and Delroy Lindo as a powerful alderman.

Matt Lauria, Devin Kelley, Todd Williams and Billy Lush also star. Ryan, Tim Minear and Charles McDougall exec produce; 20th Century Fox Television is behind the show.

Meanwhile, insiders confirmed an L.A. Times report that most of the writing staff on Fox’s 2011 entry “Terra Nova” has been laid off. Showrunner Brannon Braga remains; but with post-pilot production not expected to ramp up until next summer, the studio opted not to keep scribes on staff for now.

And over at NBC, the Peacock has added to more episodes to “Community’s” season tally — bringing it to 24 this season.
