NYPD Blue's Andy Sipowicz ( Dennis Franz) is about to become the victim of a shooting. Well, of a shotgun wedding, anyway. As reported in the new issue of

TV Guide magazine, producers have decided to incorporate Charlotte Ross's real-life pregnancy into the show, paving the way for Connie and Andy to tie the knot at last. "We put their wedding on hold last season, and this is just a terrific excuse to take care of business," says series creator Steven Bochco, who is keeping the actual date a secret for now. One thing's for sure: Connie will have ample time to plan the nuptials. As is police policy, her expectant cop character will be taken off the streets and assigned desk duty. Says Bochco: "We've got some really interesting things in store for her within the four walls." Coming up on Blue — Connie files Andy's expense report!
