    FX Chairman John Landgraf was asked about the July 21 shooting incident on the Chicago set of the network’s upcoming limited series Justified: City Primeval. The incident involved cars whose occupants were engaged in a gunfight smashing through safety barricades. It led to a temporary production halt and the implementation of additional security measures, including bringing in a trained hostage negotiator and his team, which includes former members of the Navy SEALs and Army Rangers.

    “I think it was a pretty traumatic experience for the cast and crew to be anywhere near that kind of gunfire,” Landgraf said during the FX executive session at TCA. “A lot was done to take a break and make sure everyone was OK, and we [increased] security.”

    ‘Justified: City Primeval’ producer Sony hires high-threat specialists for Chicago set 

    Deadline has learned that a trained hostage negotiator who provides security detail globally has arrived in Chicago to provide an added later of defense from outside threats. His team, which includes former members of the Navy SEALs and Army Rangers, will focus primarily on future locations to make them as safe as possible.

    The team will work in concert with production’s existing security team and the Chicago Police Department.

    An additional precaution was made for local crew members who don’t want to drive to set. Shuttles are now available for everyone, not just those who traveled to Chicago from Los Angeles.

    Production was altered this week so cast and crew will be working on stages while their safety plans are reassessed. There are only a few more weeks of filming in Chicago for the eight-episode limited series.

    The changes in security come after after cars whose occupants were engaged in a gunfight in July 21 smashed through the show’s barricades. No one was injured, though multiple shell casings were found on the set. The cast and crew hit the ground and took cover when the incident occurred near the city’s Douglass Park. Star Timothy Olyphant, who is reprising his role as U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens, was present.
