.....ugh....'Law & Order: For the Defense' just ordered straight to series......soon it will just be 'Law & Order' every day and all night....


.....Dick Wolf also owns the 'FBI' franchise....which already spun-off 'Wanted' and another spin-off is coming....


Law & Order Criminal Attorney Drama For the Defense Gets Series Order

.....Law & Order fans are used to seeing how the District Attorney’s office goes about taking down criminals. Now, for a change, they’re going to get a seat at the defense table.

The franchise’s latest iteration, titled Law & Order: For the Defense, will follow the attorneys of a criminal defense firm, NBC announced Monday. The drama skipped the pilot stage and received a straight-to-series order.

Per the official release, For the Defense “will put lawyers under the microscope, along with the criminal justice system, with every week delivering the promise of a contemporary morality tale.”

Carol Mendelsohn (CSI) will be showrunner. Law & Order creator Dick Wolf, Arthur Forney, Julie Weitz, Peter Jankowski and Mendelsohn will be executive producers. Universal Television and Wolf Entertainment will produce.

“This new show is exciting for me personally,” Wolf said via statement. “We spent the last 30 years on shows that played offense. Now it will be great to play defense and being able to do it with Carol is an honor and an opportunity for both of us to do television that hasn’t been done before.”

Of course, Wolf refers to the other Law & Order series, which traditionally have looked at crimes from the perspectives of police officers and prosecutors. Two other Law & Orders — SVU and Organized Crime — are currently on the air.

“We can’t wait to bring audiences the latest chapter of Law & Order, which will explore a different angle of the criminal justice system,” added Lisa Katz, president, Scripted Programming, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming, also via statement. “We’re excited about Dick Wolf’s perpetually thought-provoking approach as well his collaboration with Carol Mendelsohn, who we have been eager to do a series with for a long time.”

Meh. If people are enjoying the franchise, all I can say is, “mazel tov”. It’s not like I don’t have shows I enjoy coming out of my ears. big grin smiley

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

Over three decades, Dick Wolf’s Law & Order has produced several spinoffs that have filled about 60 seasons of television with more than 1,000 episodes. All those figures have added up to a Manhattan-size fortune of more than $550 million. Now comes the news that NBCUniversal is paying at least $300 million for the rights to show his top franchises on its streaming video service, Peacock.

I often wonder why L&O Divorce Court never developed to follow his.

How much is enough ...?

Law&Order: Star Trek any year now.

There was a books series which was essentially JAG in a sci-fi setting; [www.jack-campbell.com] (Added: It's a really good book series; I've enjoyed the whole run of it)

I'm sort of surprised this has never become a big element of one of the STAR TREK series, or maybe Babylon 5 back when.



(BTW, it's spelled < y'all >.)

An indication that Hollywood has run out of ideas.
