A New ‘Law & Order' Spinoff Picked Up By NBC; Will Focus On The Defense

The Law & Order franchise is expanding again!

Deadline reports that NBC has given a series order to Law & Order: For The Defense, which will bring the focus of the law to the defense’s side and dive deep into a criminal defense firm.

The series will put the lawyers under the microscope, along with the criminal justice system, with every week delivering the promise of a contemporary morality tale.

Creator Dick Wolf shared in a statement, saying that “this new show is exciting for me personally. We spent the last 30 years on shows that played offense.”

He added, “Now it will be great to play defense, and being able to do it with Carol is an honor and an opportunity for both of us to do television that hasn’t been done before.”

Carol Menselsohn will serve as the show’s showrunner.

The Law & Order franchise has included six spinoffs from the original show: Law & Order: Criminal Intent, Law & Order: Trial By Jury, Law & Order: LA, Law & Order: True Crime, Law & Order: SVU, and the most recent, Law & Order: Organized Crime with Christopher Meloni.
