DESCRIPTION:
(from NBC's press release, September 2018) One of television's most successful franchises is tackling a very relevant and topical subject matter as iconic Emmy Award-winning producer Dick Wolf brings "Law & Order: Hate Crimes" to audiences beginning with a 13-episode order from NBC. Co-created with former "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" showrunner Warren Leight, the latest installment of the enduring and wildly popular "Law & Order" 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."
