By Jerry Nunn for the Windy City Times
Jennifer Beals has appeared in more than 50 films over the years. She is beginning a new television-related endeavor on Fox, where she returns to her roots in The Chicago Code.
Windy City Times: Hello, Jennifer. I didn't realize you grew up on the South Side of Chicago.
Jennifer Beals: I did. I also lived on the North Side--everywhere but the West Side.
WCT: You don't currently live in Illinois now, do you?
Jennifer Beals: No I split my time between L.A. and Vancouver. My new show is a mid-season replacement so we will see if it is picked up for another 22 episodes and I will be in Chicago more.
WCT: It was great watching the new show The Chicago Code and seeing all the sights.
Jennifer Beals: Well, Chicago is really a character in the show, hence the title change.
WCT: What was it originally called?
Jennifer Beals: Ride-Along, the ride with the cops on their beat kind of thing.
