About Law & Order
After celebrating its astounding 300th episode in May 2003, Emmy Award-winning “Law & Order” is in the middle of its 14th season on NBC and is television’s longest-running current drama. Created and executive produced by the legendary Dick Wolf, “Law & Order” continues to deliver some of the highest ratings on television, scoring #3 for any drama on any network among adults 18-49 for each of the past three seasons. Filmed entirely on location in New York City, this realistic program looks at crime and justice from a dual perspective. Some cases may be simple, but most are multi-faceted. The investigations are challenging, prosecutions are complicated, and decisions about legal procedures and plea-bargaining vexing. In the arduous and complex process of determining guilt and innocence, lives often hang in the balance.
