Blog Spotlight: Law & Order: UK

The adaptation of a US series made for a UK market is always going to be an interesting proposition. But when the property being adapted is the long-running Law & Order series, the curiosity value soars.

Law & Order: UK has Dick Wolf taking the Law & Order formula and transplanting it to London. At its core, the investigation of a murder is a fairly easy to translate formula. What makes this such an interesting adaptation is that the half-hour Order section of the show requires a radical shift in its structure to accommodate a different legal system.

The translation, thankfully, actually works. For the most part.
