On Thursday, September 22 from 8 to 11 p.m. ET/PT on NBC, the three “Law & Order” casts will come together for the first time ever for a spectacular night of creative drama programming. It will air on Peacock the following day.
The “Law & Order” premiere event, which will help launch NBC’s broadcast season, combines the three “Law & Order” stories into a one, all-encompassing three-hour drama.
As the show kicks off, a mystery young girl is brutally murdered, and Det. Frank Cosgrove (Jeffrey Donovan, first episode) joins forces with Det. Jalen Shaw to find her perpetrator. When they realize they are dealing with more than a routine homicide case, Capt. Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay) and Det. Elliot Stabler (Christopher Meloni) are brought in to assist.In order to bring an international crime ring to justice after finding crucial evidence, Jack McCoy (Sam Waterston) and ADA Nolan Price (Hugh Dancy) face challenges.
Nothing better than an ambitious three-hour event that begins on “Organized Crime,” moves to “SVU,” and concludes with the trial on “Law & Order” to show the power of the “Law & Order” brand, according to Wolf. There isn’t a larger or better way to introduce the new “Law & Order” season. Lisa Katz, President, Scripted Programming, NBCU Television and Streaming, said: “This historic scheduling block is a salute to all ‘Law & Order’ fans who have been watching this famous brand for four decades on NBC.” “We are ecstatic to begin our season with such a historic event,” the statement continued.
