Public Housing Unit, based on the true stories of the officers and citizens involved, is set in the projects of Chicago in the late 1980s. Equal parts gritty and entertaining, the series takes the audience into an unpredictable world that explores the grey areas of right and wrong.
Chicago police officers Jimmy Martin, Charlie Toussis, and Eric Davis find themselves the enemies of both lawbreakers and lawmakers as they attempt to protect the citizens of Chicago's public housing projects. Each of them will have their morals pushed to the brink as they fight tirelessly to serve a fragmented community, broken by an unjust system.
The focus of Public Housing Unit is on a real-world representation of these stories. This isn’t a show about huge drug busts, faceless “bad guys,” and conventional police drama, but rather an honest, character-driven series about day-to-day policing in a hostile environment, and the impact that job has on the community.
