Under the deal, Brandt and Haas will continue to executive produce Chicago Fire and spinoff series Chicago P.D. and Chicago Med. Additionally, they are boarding the latest offshoot, legal drama pilot Chicago Justice, as executive producers. The embedded spinoff episode of Chicago P.D. is being filmed this month.
Brandt and Haas, who came from the feature world when they created Chicago Fire, are currently filming the feature thriller Overdrive, starring Scott Eastwood, which they wrote and produced.
The duo are repped by WME, Industry Entertainment and Hansen Jacobson.
