CAROL BURNETT TO GUEST STAR ON NBC'S "LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT" TUESDAY, MARCH 17 10 PM ET/PT

NEW YORK - February 11, 2009 - Six-time Emmy Award and five-time Golden Globe Award winner Carol Burnett will guest-star on "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit", Executive Producer Neal Baer announced today. Burnett will guest-star as a former dancer caught up in the murder of a young couple, in the episode titled "Ballerina," premiering Tuesday, March 17th, 10:00p.m. ET/PT on NBC.

"Having Carol Burnett on SVU is a dream come true. When you grow up wanting to be a writer, you can count on one hand the actors you'd give anything to work with. Carol Burnett is my thumb," said Baer.

"Every time I mention to someone that I'm about to work on "Law & Order: SVU", they immediately say 'Oh, that's my favorite show!' I'm so glad that they all share my opinion," Burnett added.

One of America's most beloved and versatile entertainers, Carol Burnett has also been recognized with a Peabody Award and more People's Choice Awards than any other woman in the award show's history. In 2003, she received the Kennedy Center Honors and in 2005 the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Since ending the 11-year run of "The Carol Burnett Show", she has moved easily from the stage to television, from feature films to films for television, and from variety specials to music and comedy specials.

Burnett will next co-star with Michael Keaton in this summer's upcoming feature, "The Post Grad Survival Guide". Recently, she portrayed the villainess Kangaroo in 20th Century Fox's blockbuster animated feature "Dr. Seuss' Horton Hears A Who", with Jim Carrey and Steve Carell.

In television, Burnett starred in the 2005 version of "Once Upon A Mattress" for ABC TV, where she played Queen Aggravain and Tracey Ullman co-starred as Princess Winnifred, the role Carol made famous during its smash Broadway run. The CBS Special "The Carol Burnett Show: Let's Bump Up The Lights", was broadcast in May of 2004 and Carol's previous special, "The Carol Burnett Show: Show Stoppers", was the fourth most watched program of 2001 and was nominated for three Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Special. Guest-starring television appearances include "Desperate Housewives" and "Mad About You", for which she won an Outstanding Guest Actress Emmy Award.

Burnett last appeared on Broadway in the 1999 Stephen Sondheim musical review "Putting It Together." Prior to that, she and Philip Bosco both received Best Actor Tony Award nominations in 1995 for their co-starring roles in "Moon Over Buffalo." Burnett and her late daughter, Carrie Hamilton, co-wrote the play "Hollywood Arms," directed by Hal Prince and based on Burnett's 1986 best-selling memoir One More Time. The production made its Broadway debut in 2002.

Burnett is currently working on a second book.

Law & Order: Special Victims Unit is a Wolf Films production in association with Universal Media Studios. Dick Wolf is creator and executive producer; Neal Baer (NBC's "ER", "China Beach"), Ted Kotcheff ("Fun with Dick and Jane", "Weekend at Bernie's") and Peter Jankowski are executive producers.
