[via press release from NBC]


"This is a different CI this season," says new show runner and Executive Producer Warren Leight

NEW YORK, NY � September 12, 2006 � A member of the Major Case Squad is kidnapped as "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" kicks off its sixth season in its new time period (Tuesday, Sept. 19, 9-10 p.m. ET/PT). "Blind Spot" introduces Eric Bogosian as Captain Danny Ross � who recently headed a successful three-year Joint Task Force on International Money Laundering and was subsequently promoted to the Major Case Squad.

"This is a different CI this season -- there will be politics and more at stake emotionally and personally for our detectives," says Warren Leight, Executive Producer and new show runner, "Law & Order: Criminal Intent." "We'll see more character-oriented stories, we want to give characters a larger role going forward and see the affect and sense the toll this job takes on the officers. Detective Goren isn't always going to be the smartest guy in the room anymore."

In this Tuesday's episode, when the body of a former Ambassador's daughter is found brutally murdered in her uptown home, Detectives Goren (Vincent D'Onofrio) and Eames (Kathryn Erbe) question a jealous ex-boyfriend. But when another body shows up with a similar crime scene, Detective Goren's old mentor (guest star John Glover) and his daughter (guest star Martha Plimpton) suddenly return to warn of a past serial killer back on the loose. The search gets personal as a member of the Major Case Squad is kidnapped.

Along with Captain Ross (Bogosian) "Law & Order: Criminal Intent's" sixth season features the addition of Detective Megan Wheeler (Julianne Nicholson) as Detective Mike Logan's (Chris Noth) new partner. Partners Logan and Wheeler form the Major Case Squad alongside long-time partners Detectives Goren and Eames, who will split the caseloads week to week.

"Law & Order: Criminal Intent" is a Wolf Films production in association with NBC Universal Television Studio and is Dick Wolf's third installment of the "Law and Order" brand, the second-longest running drama series in the history of television. Wolf, Leight and Peter Jankowski are executive producers.
