The LAW & ORDER crossover wasn’t just a momentous occasion on-screen: The three-hour “Gimme Shelter” event also marked the first time Gwen Sigan wrote for the franchise.

Sigan, of course, is no stranger to the Wolf Entertainment world: She joined CHICAGO P.D. in 2014 as then-showrunner Matt Olmstead’s assistant before moving up the ranks to taking over as showrunner in 2021. (She stepped in for Rick Eid, who left CPD to focus on running FBI and LAW & ORDER.)

Getting to explore a sister franchise was “really fun,” Sigan tells Give Me My Remote. “I was excited to work with Rick Eid again, and that’s why I was all in—because it’s always fun to work with him. And we had a good time writing it.”

With Sigan being entirely new to the world—in addition to running L&O, Eid previously wrote for SVU—she admits her favorite scenes “were the ones where they were all together.”

“To see and to get to write [Benson] and Stabler, have all of these characters in one [shot], was very fun,” she says. “And I really loved the scenes with Jeffrey Donovan, because I felt like we got to get to know [Cosgrove] a little bit with his daughter; that was nice to write.”

Of course, with the episodes being that huge in scale—including multiple raids, an explosion, and shootings—Sigan acknowledges that was another element of the crossover she enjoyed penning

“The action [scenes]—I mean, it’s huge,” she says with a laugh. “This thing is huge. We got to write quite a lot of fun action sequences.”
