LAW & ORDER
Saturdays at 10 & 11pm
Law & Order, filmed entirely in New York City, is an original
crime drama that takes us from the initial homicide right to the
In the first half hour, Detectives Ed Green (Jesse L. Martin) and Joe Fontana (Dennis Farina), a savvy, well-dressed detective lead us through their investigation and interrogation, with Lt. Van Buren's (S. Epatha Merkerson) supervision every step of the way.
In the last half hour of the show, they present their case and all the evidence to Executive District Attorney Jack McCoy (Sam Waterston) and Assistant District Attorney Alexandria Borgia (Annie Partisse) for trial. But that's not the end of it. You can expect some twists and surprises to arise either during testimony or within the justice system.
Even long time prosecutor Jack McCoy has been shocked. That's when they employ the guidance of District Attorney Arthur Branch (Fred Dalton Thompson) who sometimes sides with his own political agenda rather than on the side of justice.
This show covers everything from murder for hire to racial prejudice including personal feelings about the death penalty. However, we still don't know how Det. Fontana pays for all his expensive clothes.
