TV Series | TV-14 | | Crime, Drama, Mystery
Follows a crime (usually a murder), usually adapted from current headlines, from two separate vantage points, the police investigation and the prosecution in court.
The series was originally set to film in Los Angeles, but Dick Wolf fought NBC to film it in New York City, and won. In May 2010, it was announced that a new Los Angeles-based spin-off, tentatively titled Law & Order: LA (2010), would start in the 2010 fall line-up.
Det. Lennie Briscoe:
Just like the Bates Hotel. They check in but they never check out.
Some of the suspected criminals are shown fleeing or attempting to flee prosecution, which is not the "norm." The ones that attempt to flee do so in manners which ensure that they will be caught as some episodes have had people attempting to leave on buses from The Port Authority when there are several dozen areas around the city where a bus or train can be caught that will take you out of NYC.
The Season 17 episode "Tombstone" ends with live action during the credits instead of the usual black background.
