Law and Order: Special Victims Unit NBC

Law & Order: Special Victims Unit is an American police procedural television drama series set in New York City. Created and produced by Dick Wolf and Neal Baer.

Law & Order: Special Victims Unit centers around the detectives of the Special Victims Unit in a fictional version of the 16th Precinct of the New York City Police Department (NYPD). In the style of the original Law & Order, episodes are often “ripped from the headlines” or loosely based on a real crime that received media attention. The show stars Christopher Meloni as Detective Elliot Stabler, a senior detective in the Manhattan SVU, and Mariska Hargitay as his partner, Detective Olivia Benson, a rookie to the unit who is the child of a rape.
