This week on The Moment, Brian Koppelman talks to Derek Haas, the co-creator of Chicago Fire, executive producer of Chicago PD and Chicago Med, and the author of A Different Lie—the fourth book in a series featuring the contract killer Columbus. The two talk about their respective creative failures, how Derek manages his time as a showrunner and novelist, and why he feels compelled to keep writing books.
