NBC has given series orders to the Chicago Fire spin-off Chicago PD, Blair Underwood drama Ironside and Bill Lawrence's Undateable, TVGuide.com has confirmed.
From Dick Wolf, Chicago PD will center on the Chicago Police Department's uniformed cops and Intelligence Unit. Jason Beghe and Jon Seda will star, along with Tania Ramonde, Scott Eastwood, Melissa Sagemiller and Kelly Blatz.

The Sopranos' Michael Caleo will write and executive-produce with American Horror Story's David Semel. Spencer Grammer, Brent Sexton, Pablo Schreiber, Kenneth Choi and Neal Bledsoe will also star.
