LAW & ORDER: HATE CRIMES Pushed - Give Me My Remote : Give Me My Remote

LAW & ORDER: HATE CRIMES—the latest chapter in the LAW & ORDER franchise—will be slightly delayed.

The drama, which was ordered straight to series in September, was originally supposed to be introduced in the second half of the 20th season of LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT. Now, a source confirms it will not air as a planted spinoff this spring; though there are no firm plans about when it may launch, it remains in active development.

Per the network’s original logline, “the latest installment of the enduring and wildly popular LAW & ORDER franchise is based on New York’s actual Hate Crimes Task Force, the second oldest bias-based task force in the U.S. The unit, which pledges to uphold a zero tolerance policy against discrimination of any kind, works under the NYPD’s real Special Victims Unit and often borrows SVU’s detectives to assist in their investigations.” (LAW & ORDER franchise boss Dick Wolf co-created the new series with former SVU showrunner Warren Leight.)

Wolf was optimistic about the series while speaking with reporters last fall during the ONE CHICAGO press day. “Hate crimes are the fastest growing segment of law enforcement, unfortunately,” he said at the time. “It’s not limited to anti-Semitism and anti-LGBT: Every group has a group that would like to have them killed or burned or mutilated; it’s an unfortunate reality. We’ll never run out of stories.”
