Mega-producer Dick Wolf has put together quite a few spinoffs for his NBC series over the years, and he's about to give Law & Order its most interesting and trendy offshoot yet.
As the creator of some of the most spinoff-ready dramas on TV like Law & Order and Chicago Fire, mega-producer Dick Wolf knows a thing or two about crossovers, and his newest NBC future-hit Chicago Justice will kick off with an appearance from a Law & Order character.
If you take a cursory look at NBC’s programming over the last couple of years, you’ll notice two things: it loves Dick Wolf-produced spinoffs, and it loves airing things live. And now the stars have aligned for both of those aspects to come together in one project.
Here are 9 characters from TV’s modern era that retained their core look throughout entire runs of a series. Some of these shows are still on the air, so they could technically introduce some major changes next season, but they probably won’t.
Law & Order: SVU is one of NBC’s top dramas, 16 years after it hit the airwaves, and the network is understandably keen to revisit the original series, and so is one of Law & Order’s most recognizable faces.
We at Cinema Blend wanted to allow viewers the proper amount of time to mourn the loss that occurred at the end of last week’s episode of Community since NBC’s comedy paid homage to Law & Order for "Basic Lupine Urology” and one of the recurring characters didn’t make it out of the episode alive. In a pitch perfect conclusion, Professor Kane answered the Dean’s phone to receive the tragic news but what inspired the writers to write-off one of the show’s cult favorites in the first place? Apparently, he was asking for it.
While we have weeks to wait for the next new episode of Revenge, based on the juice tidbits we shared yesterday, the next two episodes will be worth the wait. The same might be said for the episode that follows, if you happen to be a fan of Law & Order: Criminal Intent’s Courtney B. Vance. Word is, Vance is set to play a guest role in an upcoming episode of the ABC drama series.
Connick will play executive assistant district attorney David Haden in a multi-episode arch that begins when Haden is assigned to a case with Benson (Hargitay). As generally happens when new partnerships form on procedurals, Haden and Benson are at first wary of one another, but as their relationship warms up, a little romance will begin to brew.
The original Law and Order series has not managed to put out all of the seasons of its hit franchise, yet. Seasons 1-8 and Season 14 are widely available, but the other 11 seasons are only projected. However, that isn’t stopping Universal Studios Home Entertainment from releasing a full series set. Law and Order: The Complete Series will be released on to DVD on November 8th.
The deal with Ice-T guarantees his return for the next two seasons, if SVU’s new lineup has its act together and can maintain or increase viewership enough to keep from getting canceled
Skeet Ulrich, Regina Hall and Megan Boone have all left their roles, joining the previously exiled Wanda De Jesus who was gone before the show even debuted. Some would call this whole thing a disaster. They would probably be right
NBC announced their 2010 Fall TV Premiere schedule. Wondering when The Office is returning? Or when to expect the series premieres of The Event, Chase and Outsourced? Read on for the lineup!
Gunsmoke can rest easy, knowing that it will at least hold onto a piece of the record for longest running dramatic series in network television. TNT has stated definitively they have no interest in reviving Law & Order
It seems NBC’s gotten all of their ducks in a row as far as the 2010 fall schedule, at least for now (there’s plenty of time for things to get shuffled around). Read on to see what the typical week is going to look like for the Peacock.
TNT may hold the power over whether or not NBC's venerable Law & Order series breaks the record for longest drama series in television history. NBC counts, in part, on syndication fees from TNT to subsidize the cost of the series
