NBC's Chicago Fire World Premiere Event Honors Real-life Firefighters

The producers behind NBC's new drama Chicago Fire continue to take pains to accurately reflect the real world of firefighters — to the point that the show regularly hires off-duty Chicago Fire Department members as extras. It is in that spirit that the drama's world premiere screening, to be held in Chicago, will honor several generations of Windy City firefighters.

More than 100 Chicago firefighters and their families — many of whom come from a long line of firefighters — will be on hand Tuesday night at the Chicago History Museum to celebrate the launch of the show.
