NBC and Dick Wolf have put development on their latest Law Order spinoff on hold, according to Deadline.

Hate Crimes is set to be the seventh edition of the iconic series, following the original, SVU, Criminal Intent, Trial by Jury, LA and last season’s anthology season, True Crime.

‘Law & Order: Hate Crimes’ Series Pushed At NBC

NBC is putting a pin in its plans for Law Order: Hate Crimes, the greenlighted new Law Order spinoff from the franchise’s creator Dick Wolf. Back in September, the network gave a 13-episode order to the project, which was supposed to be introduced as a planted spinoff from Law Order: SVU in an episode during the latter part of the veteran drama’s current record-tying 20th season before launching next season.

That no longer will happen. Law Oder: Hate Crimes, co-created by Wolf and one of his top lieutenants, former Law Order: SVU showrunner Warren Leight, remains in active development at the network as everyone needed more time to flesh out the concept. SVU has not been renewed yet but likely will be so it can break the record for the longest-running drama series jointly held by Gunsmoke and Law

True Detective Season 3 Was a Blistering Case Against True Crime

Carmen Ejogo and Mahershala Ali in True Detective.

Midway through the penultimate episode of True Detective’s third season, former major crimes detective Wayne Hays (Mahershala Ali) and documentarian Elisa Montgomery (Sarah Gadon) stage their final sit-down interview for True Criminal, her investigation into the decades-old Purcell abduction and murder. Montgomery is feeling herself. She’s got archival newspaper clips cued up, along with Google results about coded criminal symbology and theories about powerful men getting between good cops like Hays and conclusive justice.

In essence, Montgomery believes she’s cracked the case of Julie Purcell’s disappearance back in 1980. She links the missing girl to a rash of organized kidnapping and sex-trafficking operations around the region, including the Yellow King case that True Detective tackled in season one. Her posture alters. She leans into Hays, eager

True crime show from ‘Law & Order’ producer tackles Carbon County cold case

The new season of Oxygen’s true crime investigative show “Cold Justice” premieres this weekend and will examine a cold case in Carbon County. The first episode of the show’s two-part season premiere airs at 4 p.m. Mountain Time on Saturday and centers around the deaths of two women, Thora Kjelsrud and Debra, whose last name is not given.

“Although they died 13 years apart, the circumstances of their deaths raised questions as the women shared some curious connections,” a press release for the show says. “Working alongside the county coroner’s office, Kelly (Siegler) and the team make an eerie discovery with another mysterious death with similarities to Thora’s death. With multiple crime scenes and details to dissect, Steve Spingola and Dr. Pinneri join the case to help determine if the victim’s (sic) deaths were accidents, suicides or homicides.”

The second half of the premiere, titled “Death Among Him,” airs at 4 p.m.

25 MCU Actors That Fans Completely Forget Appeared On Law & Order

The great thing about Law Order is, it’s always on. At some point in the day you can find an episode of the various series to watch. Whether you’ve seen it a million times and already know who the bad guy is, or you stumble across an episode you’ve somehow missed and get hooked by the opening — the “ripped from the headlines” element keeps it fresh. Obviously, cop shows aren’t new, but we can all agree it’s the grandfather of the modern TV procedural. Every police show that has premiered since Law Order hit the airwaves has been copying its formula. The really fun thing about the franchise is discovering previously missed performances from your favorite actors. Sometimes it’s their first real acting job, other times they’ve guest starred as a lawyer or criminal. No matter the case, it’s endlessly enjoyable to see how they fare

Marcia Gay Harden on Playing a Twisted Mom for Lifetime & Her Possible ‘Law & Order: SVU’ Return

In 2015, the investigation into the murder of Dee Dee Blanchard revealed that she had suffered from Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy, a disorder where she forced her daughter Gypsy Rose to partake in a bizarre fraud that made people think that Gypsy was severely ill in order to gain sympathy.

Inspired by this real-life crime drama, Lifetime is airing Love You to Death, which tells the story of Camile Stoller (Marcia Gay Harden) and her daughter Esme (Emily Skeggs). The real and reel life stories are parallel. Just as Dee Dee was killed by Gypsy and her boyfriend, Camile also meets her final fate at the hands of Esme and her beau.
