Dick Wolf’s Law & Order universe is expanding with the announcement that NBC has placed a 13-episode order for Law & Order: Hate Crimes – based on New York city’s actual Hate Crimes Task Force.
Law & Order: Hate Crimes is set in New York City, where crimes motivated by discrimination are vigorously investigated by an elite, specially trained team of investigators. Going behind the headlines and viral videos, these diverse, dedicated and passionate detectives will stop at nothing to bring these criminals to justice.
The series will be introduced in the latter part of Law & Order: SVU’s upcoming 20th season.
The newest of Dick Wolf’s ‘One Chicago’ series, Chicago Justice, will be previewed on Wednesday, March 1st (10/9C) following new episodes of Chicago Fire and Chicago P.D. – a crossover event that will introduce a storyline that flows seamlessly into the new series.
Chicago Justice will then premiere in its regular timeslot on Sunday, March 5th (9/8C). Details follow the jump.
Law & Order creator Dick Wolf and NBC are developing a Law& Order true crime anthology series, dramatizing some of the most incredible true crime stories beginning with Law & Order: True Crime — The Menendez Brothers Murders.
In 1996 Lyle and Erik Menendez were convicted of murdering their parents in 1989 – after a trial filled with sensational details that the jury wouldn’t believe. They were sentenced to life without the possibility of parole.
Wolf will executive produce the series. For further details, follow the jump.
Dick Wolf, whose Law & Order is one of the game-changing procedurals in television history, has extended his deal with NBCUniversal to 2020.
Wolf, of course, is responsible for the trilogy of Chicago-based series – Chicago Fire, Chicago P.D., and Chicago Med – and is developing a fourth entry, Chicago Law, as well a reality series based on Law & Order.
Headed by Sgt. Hank Voight (Jason Beghe), the cops of Chicago’s elite Intelligence Unit are willing to break heads to break cases. Coloring outside the lines – doing what he’s got to do to get the job done. That’s the mantra of Chicago P.D.’s Voight. As Beghe says, “he’s a very good cop, but he’s more of a stick than a carrot kind of guy.”
A first look clip and relevant social media links follow the jump. Chicago P.D. premieres Wednesday, January 8 at 10/9c after Law & Order: SVU.
Recently, legendary Executive Producer Dick Wolf and star Vincent D’Onofrio from Law & Order: Criminal Intent sat down with a group of online media to chat about the upcoming 10th and final season of the show which premieres May 1st at 9/8c on the USA Network. Below is an excerpt from that event.
