Which Dick Wolf Shows Should Participate in the CBS/NBC Crossover? (POLL)
Dick Wolf is hoping to merge two of his television universes in quite the crossover event — it would be cross-network as well — and he definitely has a few options.
Wolf is reportedly hoping to bring together the newer FBI or upcoming FBI: Most Wanted and one of his established favorites, like Chicago P.D. or Law & Order: SVU. But which two teams should band together to solve a case?
It’s going to depend on the story, but until we know more, we’re taking a look at the different possibilities. Vote in the poll at the bottom for the crossover you’d most like to see.
FBI Meets Law & Order: SVU
This would probably be the easiest, given that both series are based in New York. Wolf even pointed out, “SVU deals with the FBI a lot because there is a group inside the FBI which is called Innocent Images, which is child pornography and obviously very much on the same page.”
FBI: Most Wanted Meets Chicago P.D.
Given that the upcoming midseason series follows the Fugitive Task Force, a mobile undercover unit that is always out in the field, Jess LaCroix and his team could easily end up hunting down a criminal from the Bureau’s Most Wanted list in Chicago and cross paths with Voight and the rest of the Intelligence unit.
FBI Meets Chicago P.D.
Much like Law & Order: SVU has crossed over with One Chicago in the past, a case could easily lead to someone from the New York office of the FBI — perhaps whoever replaces Sela Ward’s Dana Mosier — contacting Voight in Chicago or vice versa. And if the crossover happens before Most Wanted‘s midseason premiere, the Fugitive Task Force could have a minor role or it could be deemed unnecessary for the case.
FBI: Most Wanted Meets Law & Order: SVU
Olivia’s team could easily come across a case for which they need a team that can hunt down a criminal no one else can — and that’s where Most Wanted comes in.
FBI & FBI: Most Wanted Meets Law & Order: SVU or Chicago P.D.
The two FBI series could cross over with one of the NBC procedurals, with a case that needs all three teams to solve it but doesn’t stray into the jurisdiction of the fourth.
FBI & FBI: Most Wanted Meets Law & Order: SVU and Chicago P.D.
It wouldn’t be too difficult to have all four shows crossover story-wise, though it might be quite the undertaking production-wise. The case could easily start in New York, bringing together FBI and SVU, then their suspect could flee, bringing in Most Wanted, and ultimately lead to Chicago and P.D..
