Law & Order stars return sans raises

It's good news for Law & Order: Criminal Intent fans and bad news for Law & Order: Criminal Intent cast members.

Fans of the drama will be happy to know that the show is still returning for its seventh season, as was revealed at the NBC upfronts in May. Viewers can also expect to see Criminal Intent's cast return, with Vincent D'Onofrio (Detective Robert Goren), Chris Noth (Detective Mike Logan), and Kathryn Erbe (Detective Alexandra Eames) all coming back for another year.

However, getting the show to lucky number seven came at a cost. In order to keep the crime drama running, series creator Dick Wolf agreed to keep the budget down, says Reuters. Wolf's solution was to not offer the standard season-to-season raise--usually in the neighborhood of five percent--to the cast.

Though the actors were disappointed, there's no need to feel too badly for them. "They ...

Law & Order: Criminal Intent delayed

Legal show fans are highly anticipating Jeff Goldblum's debut on Law & Order: Criminal Intent. And they'll have to anticipate a little longer.

The eighth season Law & Order: CI was all set to begin on November 7 on the USA Network, but the NBC-owned cable station decided to push its start date back a few months.

USA getting more Criminal

One of television's most prolific properties lives on. USA Network--part of the NBC family--has ordered an eighth season of the Law & Order spin-off Law & Order: Criminal Intent, as reported by Variety.

The new season will consist of 16 episodes and has not yet been given a premiere date. The show, which moved to USA last year after half a dozen seasons on parent company NBC, performed well in its debut season for the network. Prior to the move, the show's future was in doubt on NBC. However, NBC did air episodes of Criminal Intent during the writers strike to beef up its own schedule.

The entire cast, which is currently working out contracts for a new season, is expected to return.

Law & Order: Criminal Intent differs from its cousins in that it offers more detail on the actions and motives of the no-gooders who perform the acts of ...

Law & Order future still undecided

After more than a month of negotiations, the future of ratings-challenged NBC crime dramas Law & Order and Law & Order: Criminal Intent is still uncertain.

This week began with a flurry of rumors Monday about the cancellation of the mothership series, which is in its 17th season.

After an in-person meeting between representatives for the series' creator, Dick Wolf, and NBC later that day, the fate of the show was moved back into the "undecided" column. Talks between the two sides are expected to stretch into early May before a final decision on the two series is made. (The franchise's third series, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, was picked up for next season in January.)

"Talks have been taking place and continue to take place about the future of both Law & Order and Law & Order: Criminal Intent," Wolf said Wednesday. "I think the discussions have reached a productive stage, and ...

Law & Order: Criminal Intent delayed…again

The good news is Law & Order: Criminal Intent will be back. We promise. But, it just won't be back when we thought it would be. Or when we thought it would be late last year. Actually, I guess we'll be lucky if it's back at all.

Law & Order and Criminal Intent spin-off return January; both airing back-to-back, taking over "Bionic Wednesdays."

Pair of Laws ordered back to NBC
tv_StrikeSource2.jpg

With all the writers-strike chaos currently overtaking the television scene, NBC decided that a little Law & Order was necessary to keep things in line.

The network yesterday revealed the new premiere date for Law & Order's 18th season, and also promoted one of its spin-offs, Law & Order: Criminal Intent. The original Law & Order, which survived an unclear future with the network in May, will begin airing new episodes on Wednesdays beginning January 2.

Law & Order was a staple on television on hump day for many years, but last season was relegated to the less-than-optimal night of Fridays. Although the strike has been seen as a blow to many, it actually has some positive side effects for Law & Order. Before the strike hit Hollywood, the show was poised to air on Sundays at the conclusion of football season, as NBC took over Sunday Night Football this year. Now, it takes over the much-hyped "Bionic Wednesdays" night previously occupied by Bionic Woman and Life. (Life was picked up for a full season but the strike is preventing production of new episodes; Bionic's future hasn't been decided, but it's believed to be grim).

The new season of the longest-running current prime-time drama will open with a two-hour episode beginning at 9 p.m. on the first Wednesday of the new year. After that, it will hold the 10 p.m-11 p.m. slot that night. New ...

Fox has Criminal Intent

Law & Order: Criminal Intent is set to become the first drama series to air weekday reruns in broadcast syndication since 2001.

The show will air on Fox owned-and-operated stations in several major markets--including Los Angeles, New York, and Chicago--beginning next fall, distributor NBC Universal said Thursday. The terms of the two-year deal call for one run per day.

7th Heaven was the most recent drama to be sold to broadcast stations as a "strip," that is, airing Monday to Friday. The last crime drama deal was 14 years for 21 Jump Street. In recent years, the trend has been to sell weekday reruns to basic cable and weekend runs to local stations.

In 2004, NBC Universal-owned USA Network and Bravo acquired cable rerun rights to Criminal Intent for nearly $2 million per episode. USA, which paid a majority of that ...

"In New York City's war on crime, the worst criminal offenders are pursued by the detectives of the Major Case Squad. These are their stories." Groundbreaking producer Dick Wolf presides over his popular, Emmy Award-winning Law & Order franchise with Law & Order: Criminal Intent, broadcast on NBC during its first six seasons and then moved to NBC Universal sibling USA Network beginning with season seven. This legal crime drama is unique among the other franchise programs in that it offers an additional dimension by exposing major crimes from the criminal's perspective. Vincent D'Onofrio stars as Det. Robert Goren, an exceptionally bright homicide investigator with well-honed instincts that match up favorably with his criminal quarry. Likewise, his partner, Det. Alexandra Eames (Kathryn Erbe), brings an independence and stylish edge to her work that meshes well in tandem with Goren. In the fifth season, they were joined by Det. Mike Logan (Chris Noth), who had finally worked his way back from a ten-year exile to Staten Island. Logan has worked with three partners. Carolyn Barak (Annabella Sciorra) was introduced in the fifth season as the meticulous and measured counterpart to the fiery Logan. Megan Wheeler (Julianne Nicholson) joined major case in the sixth season as an equally brainy detective but with a bit of a wild side. Nola Falacci (Alicia Witt) worked with Logan for part of the seventh season while Wheeler was on another assignment (Nicholson's maternity leave). A hot-headed Irish-Italian mix, Falacci gave Logan a turn as the level-headed partner. Goren also worked briefly with another detective, G. Lyn Bishop (Samantha Buck), while Eames was on maternity leave (Erbe's real maternity leave). Their commanding officer during the first five seasons, Capt. James Deakins (Jamey Sheridan), was a competent but ambitious political character who knew how to survive and thrive behind the scenes. All of them often butted heads with the no-nonsense Assistant District Attorney Ron Carver (Courtney B. Vance), a stickler for the crucial legal details for the first five seasons. The sixth season introduced Eric Bogosian as Capt. Danny Ross to replace Jamey Sheridan. There was no replacement for the A.D.A. character. René Balcer, a ten-year veteran of the original Law & Order series, developed Law & Order: Criminal Intent and served as head writer, executive producer and showrunner for the first five seasons. Warren Leight took over as showrunner and executive producer in seasons six and seven. Peter Jankowski and Norberto Barba are also executive producers.moreless
