I was rummaging around the Web looking for articles about Amy Pascal leaving Sony Pictures following that hacking fiasco, when I found this story at Deadline Hollywood about the possible return of the original Law and Order series to TV
It would only be a limited run, but would apparently feature former cast members coming back including Sam Waterston and Chris Noth.
This would allow this legendary series to maybe (a) get a decent TV sendoff and (b) break Gunsmoke’s record — neither of which happened when it was yanked off the air by NBC back in 2010 after 20 seasons.
Of course, Law and Order: Special Victims Unit has kept on going and going. But I have no idea why, because the original show was better, in my opinion, and featured less depressing subject matter.
