Wolf Films/Universal Media Studios' "Law & Order," the 1997 Emmy Award winner for Outstanding Drama Series, the record holder for the most consecutive Best Series nominations (eleven, tied with "Cheers" and "M*A*S*H") and the longest-running drama series currently on television, returns for its 19th season Wednesday, November 5, 10:00 p.m. (ET/PT) on NBC.

In the season premiere titled "Rumble," a stockbroker is beaten to death in broad daylight, causing a "rumble" of epic proportions between the deceased's family and the faction responsible for his death. Subsequent episodes include guest appearances from Ned Beatty, Sherry Stringfield, Jena Malone, Katee Sackhoff, Tom Everett Scott and Vivica A. Fox, among others.

Upcoming episodes include:

� November 12 - "Challenged" about a mentally challenged man, who, after his brother is killed, is reunited with the mother who gave him away.

� November 19 - "Zero" about an environmentally obsessed murder victim who was in the wrong place at the wrong time. During the trial, ADA Cutter (Linus Roache) realizes an old friend working in the system is obstructing justice and he is determined to expose their misconduct. Guest stars Ned Beatty as a Judge whose best days are behind him and Sherry Stringfield as his overzealous clerk.

� December 3 - "Lost Boys" about a young woman who escaped from a polygamist cult. Guest stars Jena Malone.

"Law & Order" is the longest-running police series and second longest-running drama series in the history of television. It has also turned into one of entertainment's preeminent brands, with its successful spin-offs "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," "Law & Order: Criminal Intent," as well as ancillary media platforms including DVDs, interactive games and a hardcover book.

Filmed entirely on location in New York City, "Law & Order" looks at crime and justice from a unique two-tiered perspective. In the first half-hour, Detectives Cyrus Lupo (Jeremy Sisto) and Kevin Bernard (Anthony Anderson) investigate crimes and apprehend suspects under the supervision of their no-nonsense lieutenant, Anita Van Buren (S. Epatha Merkerson). In the second half-hour, the focus shifts to the criminal courts, where D.A. Jack McCoy (Sam Waterston) oversees his staff of prosecutors, including Chief A.D.A. Michael A. Cutter (Linus Roache) and A.D.A. Connie Rubirosa (Alana de la Garza) as they navigate the complex and challenging legal system.

"Law & Order" is a Wolf Films Production in association with Universal Media Studios. Wolf is creator and executive producer. Ren� Balcer, Fred Berner and Peter Jankowski are also executive producers.
