The Revival Is Real! Law & Order Filming In Soho
While Law & Order was cancelled in 2010, in February 2015 there were rumors starting that NBC was planning to bring the series back for 10 episodes.
Well, it looks like that is coming true – they have been on-site all day today filming Law & Order. Check out the video here and below are two photos from Spring Street:
Former star Sam Waterston (EADA/DA Jack McCoy) announced to The Hollywood Reporter that he supports and would join a revival of Law & Order, saying: “You’re darn right. Sure, I’d love it. Got to break the record.”
Creator Dick Wolf has expressed wanting to use a L&O revival to do a ‘ripped from the headlines’ story-line surrounding the murder trial of Robert Durst, Wolf said “[Of all my past projects] I’d bring back Law & Order. Everybody who knows me knows it’s something I want to do,” he continued, “my only regret looking backward is all the great stories that we haven’t been able to do for the past five years.”
At the 2015 Television Critics Association summer press tour, Wolf noted everyone wants a revival, “It is a question of… most of the people involved are very successful in their careers. To try to get everything in sequence is much more difficult than it looks on the outside. I am always an optimist. I would love to do it if we can make it work.”
Filmed on location in New York, the drama showcases the sometimes-complex process of determining guilt or innocence, while lives hang in the balance. Often inspired by the latest headlines, the plots highlight legal, ethical or personal dilemmas to which people can relate.
