  • Notes

    • The show's format was inspired, in part, by a much earlier series, Arrest and Trial, which was split into two parts -- the first focused on arresting the criminals, the second part on the trial. Law & Order was initially intended to be re-run in thirty minute segments, but the show's popularity allowed it to be run in the original one-hour format.
