12 minutes ago Dick Wolf brought his magic procedural touch to CBS in the 2018-2019 TV season with FBI. The new show quickly proved that he could deliver hits on the Eye Network as well as over on NBC with the Law & Order/Chicago franchise, and a spinoff of FBI is in the works. Well, the spinoff -- called FBI: Most Wanted -- will feature a familiar face from past Dick Wolf projects, if ordered to series. Alana de la Garza of Law & Order fame landed a role. In FBI: Most Wanted, Alana de la Garza would play Assistant Special Agent in Charge Isobel Castile. She is the Fugitive Squad Supervisor, and she brings the focus and polish she gained at West Point to her job with the FBI. Spending a brief time in Silicon Valley undoubtedly impacted how she does her job, and she avoids politics when she can. Deadline describes Castile as “a rising star” and “a guided missile.” Alana de la Garza is no stranger to procedurals, although her work on Law & … [Read more...] about Law And Order Vet Is Reuniting With Dick Wolf For CBS’ FBI Spinoff

7 minutes ago It's been a tumultuous year for fans of Fox's Brooklyn Nine-Nine. After the comedy was axed by the network in a live-action sitcom bloodbath just a few days before its Season 5 finale, it was saved soon after and given a chance to continue at NBC. Of course, this sudden save meant that its new network would need to shuffle things around to make room for the half-hour, so Brooklyn Nine-Nine was held until mid-season, meaning that we'd have a longer wait for Season 6 to hit the small screen. Well, that time is almost here, and now a new trailer just dropped that pays hilarious homage to that other long-running cop show on NBC: Law & Order: SVU. Take a look! Come on, people. If you aren't watching Brooklyn Nine-Nine, can't you at least tell now that you've been wasting the last several years of your life? I mean, this promotional video is perfection. From the distinctive font with blue and red shadows, to the voice over, the familiar strains of that theme song and … [Read more...] about Brooklyn Nine-Nine Gets The Law And Order: SVU Treatment In Hilarious New Trailer
[Warning: This story contains spoilers from Wednesday's season finale of Law & Order: SVU, "Heartfelt Passages."] For his final episode ever of Law & Order: SVU, outgoing showrunner Warren Leight did something he's never done before: he killed off a member of the SVU squad. "There's been an emotional roller-coaster that's gone on internally at this show these last few months," Leight tells The Hollywood Reporter. "We wanted to mirror that a little bit in the finale." In the second of the two-part season 17 finale, Sgt. Mike Dodds (Andy Karl) was shot on his last day at SVU in the midst of a confrontation with a corrections officer (played by Brad Garrett) accused of sexual assaulting inmates. "We tend to think of our guys almost being like superheroes in a way. There's an invulnerability to them, and that's not the reality of that job," Leight says. "We just also wanted to give respect to the police officers who do risk their lives every day and whose families don't know if … [Read more...] about ‘Law & Order: SVU’ Boss on His “Emotional” Series Farewell, “Heartbreaking” Finale Death
4 minutes ago Spoilers ahead for the Season 20 premiere of Law & Order: SVU. Olivia Benson has been facing the worst of the worst criminals for a couple of decades, and the Season 20 premiere may have indicated that she's going to find herself on the bench in the not-too-distant future. The premiere was a gigantic two-hour event that started off as a horrifying rape case and then transformed into a school shooting case, perpetrated by the victim who was denied justice after a court failure by the still-mourning A.D.A. Peter Stone. Olivia was struggling with an issue she hasn't really had to face before, and it didn't have anything to do with the heinous sexually-based offense she investigates. She found herself getting winded and falling short when trying to chase down suspects. Normally, one of the SVU detectives getting winded in a chase sequence wouldn't really be that big of a deal. They do a lot of running and jumping and tackling when trying to apprehend the bad … [Read more...] about Is Law And Order: SVU Preparing To Bench Olivia Benson?
6 minutes ago It's that time of year again when networks make the difficult decisions about which shows will be renewed and which will be cancelled. Some shows have already gotten bad news, but NBC just delivered some very good news for fans of four big series. Law and Order: Special Victims Unit will carry on into Season 20, and all three Chicago shows scored renewals as well. It's a good time to be a fan of Dick Wolf shows on NBC! Law and Order: SVU has reinvented itself somewhat in the second half of Season 19 following the departure of Raul Esparza as A.D.A. Rafael Barba and the arrival of Philip Winchester as replacement A.D.A. Peter Stone. The sexually based offenses are as heinous as ever and the dedicated detectives work as hard as ever, so there was no sign that SVU has been running out of steam. NBC is clearly satisfied with how SVU has performed, and SVU executive producer Michael Chernuchin should be happy. Chernuchin suggested earlier this year that the show last at … [Read more...] about Law And Order: SVU, Chicago P.D., And More Renewed By NBC
