There’s also speculation that Righetti might head up another ‘Chicago’ spin-off focused on a hospital titled ‘Chicago M.D.,’ but, as of right now, that’s purely rumor.

Love the campy photo Allyson. Fargo looks interesting. Righetti should have been on Masters of sex portraying a Nympho. Rest reads like stale old crap.
