HUMBLE BEGINNINGS

Running for 30 years, the show continues to tell thought-provoking, controversial issues. Showrunner Warren Leight said:

“There are ways, we will find our way in to tell the story. Presumably our cops will still be trying to do the right thing but it's going to be harder for them and they're going to understand why it's hard for them."

Created by Dick Wolf, the police and legal drama officially premiered in 1990. Since then it has gone on to add successful spin-offs like "SVU" which is currently shooting Season 22.
