29-Aug-15 – If you see smoke at Marina City on Monday, producers of the NBC television drama Chicago P.D. do not want you to be alarmed. Universal Television will be filming at Marina City all day on Monday, according to a filming notice to residents and property managers.

The filming will be for an upcoming episode. According to the notice, “filming will involve the use of non-toxic special effects,” under the supervision of real Chicago fire and police personnel.

From 4 a.m. to 10 p.m., there will be no parking on both sides of State and Dearborn Streets from Hubbard Street south to the Chicago River, both sides of Kinzie Street between Dearborn Street and Wabash Avenue, and on the south side of the river, a 150-foot stretch of Wacker Place east of Wabash.

A spin-off of Chicago Fire, Chicago P.D. is a drama about uniformed and undercover Chicago Police Department officers. The show’s third season will premier on September 30.

On October 20, 2013, Chicago P.D. filmed a scene just south of Marina City on the State Street Bridge.
