This show introduces the Special Victims Unit, a specially trained squad of detectives in the NYPD who investigate sexually related crimes.
Two years before joining the cast as a series regular, Diane Neal (Casey Novak) appeared in an episode playing a woman accused of raping a male stripper.
Don't look at me, I just know stuff.
The series is ostensibly based on the NYPD's Special Victims Division, but the SVD wasn't established until 2003, four years after the series premiered.
From the second episode of the second season (2000-2001), the opening credits break the pattern followed by the earlier episodes of SVU, the original Law & Order, and Criminal Intent. Instead of the credits ending with a shot of the cast walking towards the camera, they instead are shown sitting around a desk.
