Law and order fans are finally getting a big crossover. The premieres of three Dick Wolfe dramas form one giant crossover that feels more like a movie than three episodes in which characters appear as needed.
Per television line, Law and order Showrunner Rick Aid had this to say about the event:
“For the first time in its history, the NBC Law & Order brand is bringing all three actors together for a special night of inspired drama programming from creator Dick Wolf. Thursday, September 22, 8:00 pm to 11:00 pm ET/PT at the NBC. It will air the next day on Peacock.
The premiere of Law & Order, which will help open NBC’s broadcast season, weaves the storylines of Law & Order, Law & Order: SVU, and Law & Order: Organized Crime together. – a three-hour story.
At the beginning of the telecast, a mysterious young girl is shot in cold blood, and Det. Frank Cosgrove (Jeffrey Donovan) teams up with Det. Jalen Shaw (Mehcad Brooks, episode one) to track down her killer. Captain Olivia Benson (Marishka Hargitay) and det. Elliot Stabler (Christopher Meloni) is called in to help when they realize they have more than a simple murder case on their hands. After uncovering key clues, Jack McCoy (Sam Waterston) and Ada Nolan Price (Hugh Dancy) seek justice against an international crime ring, but the outcome of their case could be complicated.
The three-hour telecast was written by Rick Aid (Law & Order) and Gwen Sigan (Chicago P.D.). Law & Order veteran Jean de Segonzac is directing the first two hours, while Alex Hall (Law & Order, The Deuce) directs the final hour. The Law & Order brand is produced by Universal Television, a division of the Universal Studio Group, in association with Wolf Entertainment.
“Nothing demonstrates the power of the Law & Order brand quite like an ambitious three-hour event with a story that is truly ripped from the headlines that starts with Organized Crime, then migrates to SVU, and finally the trial of Law & Order. ‘ Wolf said. “Rick and Gwen have done an amazing job writing a compelling script, and I can’t think of a bigger, better way to launch the new season of Law & Order on Thursday.”
“This unprecedented schedule is a tribute to all the Law & Order fans who have followed this iconic brand on NBC for four decades,” said Lisa Katz, President of Scripted Programming, NBCU Television and Streaming. “We are thrilled to open our season with such a historic event.”
