"I don't think you can really make television based on what you think audiences want. You can only make stories that you like, because you have to watch it so many times." - Dick Wolf
The term Wolf Universe is commonly used to describe American television programs created and/or produced by Dick Wolf.
Crime and first responders are the connecting links between the shows, as well as executive producers like Dick Wolf, Peter Jankowski, Arthur W. Forney, Tom Thayer and other production staff. Also shared people and resources in a common fictional setting connect these shows, for example Molly's, a small bar owned by three firefighters, which has been frequented by characters from all four Chicago Franchise shows. Many supporting characters, such as police officers and paramedics are also shared among the shows. Occasionally, crossovers of main characters and/or shared story lines between two of the shows will occur. A major character has also left the cast of one show within the franchise only to join another.
