  • Notes

    • The originally proposed title of the series was Sex Crimes, which was later amended to Law & Order: Sex Crimes Unit before being changed for public relations reasons. Dick Wolf had made the creation of the show an integral part of continuing the original Law & Order contract. Created in a partnership with the USA Network, the agreement between NBC and USA is that USA would air the brand new episodes one to two weeks following NBC's airing.
