Chicago is providing the backdrop for a new TV police drama.

Governor Quinn announced the show 'Ride-Along' is now being filmed in and around the city. Some stars of the show, including Jennifer Beals, joined the governor near the set in Cicero Thursday.

Quinn credits the state's film tax credit with helping land the series.

Producing the program in Chicago is expected to generate about $25 million in revenue for the state and create about 400 jobs.
