Don’t get too excited until you read what it’s about.
I don’t know if my knee-jerk reaction is supposed to be love or hate.
He gave us a few juicy details about the rest of the first season, but one thing that really sounds cool is an idea he hasn’t written yet.
Creator Shawn Ryan (“The Shield”) and stars Jason Clarke and Delroy Lindo lay down the law of land on their new Fox show.
What can replace fabulous swears like sh*t and as*hole?
Fox has unleashed the teaser trailer for their upcoming Chicago cop drama, "The Chicago Code." The series is created by Shawn Ryan, the man behind one of my favorite shows of all time, "The Shield." Don't let the cliché line shouting in the trailer deter you from watching the show when it premieres in February. I've seen the pilot and it is an exciting, well-written piece of television. Ryan knows his cops and his hometown well. He won't get away with the same explicit content that "The Shield" did, but there will be plenty of police brutality. Hey, it's Chicago, fugetaboutit! Ah crap, wrong town.
Check out the trailer after the jump…
Shawn's here for dinner. Invite him in.
"The Shield" creator Shawn Ryan has been hired to turn Tom Clancy's best-seller Without Remorse into a kick-ass script for Paramount. Star Trek writer-producers, and J.J. Abrams's BFFs, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci are producing. Vulture shoops with the scoop:
The book follows one of Clancy's recurring characters, John Kelly (who later assumes the alias of John Clark, and appears in the Jack Ryan novels like Patriot Games and Rainbow Six), as he seeks revenge against the Baltimore drug ring responsible for the death of his girlfriend. While the book is set in the 1970s during the Vietnam War, insiders tell us there's no definitive plan to make the film a "period" piece.
The thought of Shawn Ryan writing the story of a man seeking revenge against a drug ring stimulates my pleasure centers. "The Shield" is one of my favorite shows of all time. If Without Remorse captures the same tone with characters as rich and compelling as Vic Mackey and his Strike Team then I'd say Paramount has a successful franchise on its hands. Just don't get Walton Goggins to play the role of the hick, if there even is one. Dude needs to branch out. "President" has a nice ring to it.
