NBC Orders New ‘Law & Order’ Series From Dick Wolf Based on Hate Crimes Task Force
NBC has ordered a new “Law & Order” series from Dick Wolf, the network announced Tuesday.
The series is titled “Law & Order: Hate Crimes” and has received a 13 episode commitment. Co-created with former “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” showrunner Warren Leight, the latest installment of the iconic TV franchise is based on New York’s actual Hate Crimes Task Force, the second oldest bias-based task force in the U.S. The unit, which pledges to uphold a zero tolerance policy against discrimination of any kind, works under the NYPD’s real Special Victims Unit and often borrows SVU’s detectives to assist in their investigations. The first incarnation of this new unit will be introduced in the latter part of the upcoming 20th season of “SVU.”
