Executive produced by Robert Redford and Laura Michalchyshyn of Sundance Productions, and award-winning filmmakers Marc Levin and Mark Benjamin of BCTV, Chicagoland is a non-scripted, eight-part original series about a heartland American city. The series explores where politics and policy meet real people's lives -- in a city generating change and innovation in social policy, education, and public safety -- to meet national and local challenges.
"[A] fascinating, frustrating, chilling, joyful, celebratory, sad, revelatory and compelling series titled Chicagoland, eight TV hours devoted to this city in all its bloody, contentious, savage, soulful, fearful and hopeful struggles."
