‘Law & Order: Hate Crimes’: NBC Chief “Confident” Series Will Happen

NBC in March put a pin in its plans for Law Order: Hate Crimes, the greenlighted 13-episode new Law Order spinoff from the franchise’s creator Dick Wolf.

While the network abandoned plans to introduce the new series as a planted spinoff on an episode of Law Order: SVU this season, the show, co-created by Wolf and one of his top lieutenants, former Law Order: SVU showrunner Warren Leight, remained in active development.

Since then, Leight has returned as showrunner of SVU for its upcoming record-breaking Season 21.

“You can say how prolific Mr. Wolf is, not only on NBC,” NBC Entertainment co-chairman Paul Telegdy said during NBC’s upfronts call Sunday. “Law Order: Hate Crimes is in ongoing development. I am very confident that

‘Law & Order SVU’ Actor Dean Winters Reveals Huge Purchase He Made After ‘Allstate’ Commercial Success

Law and Order: SVU alum Dean Winters has a resume most actors would rest easy with. Not only has he had roles on acclaimed series like Oz, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, 30 Rock, and Rescue Me, he’s also a recognizable spokesperson for Allstate insurance.

It’s the latter role that has reportedly given Winters the most success according to Page Six. While speaking to the outlet, Winters said that his role as Mayhem in the Allstate ads was the one that finally opened a route to his dreams.

“It took me a long time,” he tells Page Six. “I was born and raised in New York City and I’ve always wanted to own an apartment. So I just bought an apartment downtown. I’m calling it the house that Mayhem built.”

The role as Mayhem in the Allstate ads has brought Winters his highest-paying role, recognition with the general public, and

Law & Order: Special Victims Unit Renewed for Record 21st Season

Law Order: Special Victims Unit (SVU), starring East Ender Mariska Hargitay, has been renewed for a record 21st season, making it TV’s longest-running primetime live action show. The record was previously held by the original Law Order series and Gunsmoke, both of which ran for 20 seasons. Hargitay, who has played Olivia Benson since the show’s premiere, now holds the record for playing the longest-running character in a primetime live action series.

The NBC crime drama follows the exploits of the Manhattan-based Special Victims Unit, an elite squad that investigates sexually based offenses. Hargitay plays Lt. Benson, who runs the department, alongside her detectives Fin Tutuola (Ice-T), Amanda Rollins (Kelli Giddish) and Dominick Carisi (Peter Scanavino). Each episode tells a self-contained story, though over the years there have been longer yarns, including Benson being kidnapped by a serial killer. SVU

‘Law & Order: SVU’ Renewed For Record-Breaking 21st Season By NBC As Dick Wolf & Mariska Hargitay Write TV History

Law Order: SVU and its star Mariska Hargitay have cemented their places in television history. NBC has renewed Dick Wolf’s series for a record-setting 21st season, making it TV’s longest-running primetime live-action series, surpassing the previous mark of 20 seasons set by mothership series Law Order (1990-2010) and Gunsmoke (1955-75). And the police procedural may not been done rewriting TV records books as I hear Season 21 is not currently envisioned as a final chapter.

The renewal also marks a milestone for Hargitay’s Lt. Benson as the longest-running character in a primetime live-action series. Hargitay surpassed Gunsmoke‘s James Arness and Milburn Stone as well as Kelsey Grammer who have all portrayed the same character for 20 consecutive seasons. (Grammer did it as Frasier Crane on two series, Cheers and Frasier, and
