Judith Light Reprises Role as Sex Crimes Bureau Chief

NEW YORK -- November 8, 2004 -- Emmy Award nominee and Golden Globe winner Kyle MacLachlan ("Sex & the City") guest-stars as a psychiatrist whose son is murdered at the hands of a juvenile sociopath on NBC's "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," (Tuesdays, 10-11 p.m. ET). Additionally, Judith Light ("Who's the Boss") reprises her role as Elizabeth Donnelly, the bureau chief for the sex crimes division.

"What do you do with a 13-year-old boy who is a sociopath -- and has committed murder -- when most psychiatrists believe they are untreatable?" said executive producer Neal Baer. "Do you put them away, or release them at age 18? It is a social issue we have not come to terms with. What should society do?"

In the episode, a 5-year-old boy disappears from a playground, and Detectives Benson (Mariska Hargitay) and Stabler (Chris Meloni) search for suspects, but the case takes a grim turn when the boy is discovered dead by suffocation -- and all clues lead to Jake, (guest star Jordan Garratt), the boy's 13-year-old neighbor. Novak (Diane Neal) and her boss Donnelly, (Judith Light) are faced with this complex case, and Jake faces a shocking verdict. Richard Belzer, Ice-T, B.D. Wong, and Dann Florek also star.

MacLachlan is perhaps best known for his performance as FBI Agent Dale Cooper in David Lynch's groundbreaking series "Twin Peaks," for which he received two Emmy nominations and a Golden Globe award. MacLachlan is also known for his starring role on "Sex & the City." Currently, he can be seen playing the role of Cary Grant in Sony Pictures Classics "Touch of Pink."

Light is well known for her portrayal of Angela Bauer on "Who's the Boss?" Early in her career, Light won two Daytime Emmy awards for her performance on "One Life to Live" and has since earned a niche for emotional drama while starring on stage and in several TV movies. Light was also in the critically acclaimed and Pulitzer Prize winning Off-Broadway play "Wit."

The hard-hitting and emotional companion series from NBC's "Law & Order" franchise chronicles the life and crimes of the elite Special Victims Unit of the New York Police Department. "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" was created by Emmy Award-winning producer Dick Wolf. "SVU" celebrated its 100th episode in November, 2003 and is now entering it's sixth season. "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" is a Wolf Films production in association with NBC Universal Television Studio. Dick Wolf is creator and executive producer; Ted Kotcheff ("Fun with Dick and Jane," "Weekend at Bernie's"), Neal Baer (NBC's "ER," "China Beach") and Peter Jankowski are executive producers.
