NBC has expanded the LAW & ORDER franchise with another spinoff: LAW & ORDER: FOR THE DEFENSE has been ordered straight to series.

The new series, from uber producer Dick Wolf and showrunner Carol Mendelsohn, “will take an unbiased look inside 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.”

“This new show is exciting for me personally,” Wolf said. “We spent the last 30 years on shows that played offense. 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.”

“We can’t wait to bring audiences the latest chapter of ‘Law & Order,’ which will explore a different angle of the criminal justice system,” said Lisa Katz, President, Scripted Programming, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming. “We’re excited about Dick Wolf’s perpetually thought-provoking approach as well his collaboration with Carol Mendelsohn, who we have been eager to do a series with for a long time.”

There are two LAW & ORDER shows currently on NBC: SVU, currently in its 22nd season and renewed through season 24, and new spinoff ORGANIZED CRIME, which NBC notes had the top series network debut in 2.5 years, excluding those with NFL lead-ins.
