I was telling the story earlier just thinking back to episode one of this season and that first shot when they sweep across the lakefront and our skyline. Man, I was watching the show with a lot of my family and friends, all from Chicago. When that came up on the screen, everyone just raised a glass, man. There’s a sense of pride how our city was shown in this series” Fleming III said.

There is a lot of Chicagoans who make this show work and who put in that work to have this show to be what it is.
