“I’m incredibly lucky and blessed to have a job I love,” summitt says. “I’ve worked in the business for a long time now. I’ve worked in LA, Chicago, Detroit, all over the region. I go wherever the work takes me, but I always return to my hometown. Dayton is home.”

Summitt has previously landed roles on Comedy Central and UPTV Network as well as various feature films and web series, a release says. Chicago PD will make his first role on primetime TV.

“It’s so exciting to have an opportunity like this,” summitt says. “The cast and crew were so professional, just an incredible team. It’s truly an honor to work on a TV show of this calibre.”
