‘Chicago Fire’ Adds ‘Friday Night Lights’ Alum for Crossover Episode

Chicago Fire” is making a late addition to its troupe for the series’ final three episodes, and just in time for this week’s mega-crossover episodes with Dick Wolf’s two other NBC dramas, “Chicago P.D.” and “Law & Order: SVU.”

Dora Madison Burge, an alum of “Friday Night Lights” and “Dexter,” is signing on as a new paramedic in charge at the firehouse at the center of NBC’s “Chicago Fire.” Burge is billed as a guest star for the final three episodes of “Chicago Fire’s” third season. There’s speculation that she could move to the prospective spinoff “Chicago Med” if that project gets the series greenlight from NBC.

“Chicago Fire” kicks off the three-show crossover stunt on Tuesday with its regular 10 p.m. installment that will feature “SVU’s” Mariska Hargitay heading to the Windy City as part of the investigation of an unsolved rape and murder case. The episode will repeat on Wednesday at 8 p.m., followed by “Chicago P.D.” and “Law & Order: SVU” installments that pick up the same story threads.

The Dick Wolf drama shop is on a roll at NBC, with a strong possibility of “Chicago Med” becoming his fourth series on the Peacock’s air next season. The planted spinoff aired as the April 7 installment of “Chicago Fire.” It was well-received enough by network brass to be contender for a series order.
