On Wednesday, 14 July, at 21:30 CAT, M-Net welcomes Law & Order: Organized Crime, the newest addition to Dick Wolf’s Emmy® winning Law & Order brand. And what fans can expect on the night is truly something spectacular.
For the first time in history, two DStv channels, M-Net and Universal TV, will team up to bring viewers a massive crossover event between Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and its highly anticipated spin-off series, Law & Order: Organized Crime. The Law & Order: Special Victims Unit episode called, “Return of the Prodigal Son” will air on Universal TV (channel 117) at 20:45 CAT, with the premiere episode of Law & Order: Organized Crime airing on M-Net (channel 101) at 21:30 CAT.
Law & Order fans will be thrilled to hear that, in order to make this this crossover event extra special, the premiere episode of Law & Order: Organized Crime on M-Net will be available to Premium, Compact Plus, Compact, and Family customers on M-Net (channel 101) on their decoders or to stream on channel 915 on the DStv app.
In the crossover, Christopher Meloni reprises his role as fan-favourite Elliot Stabler, who returns to the New York Police Department to battle organized crime after suffering a devastating personal loss. However, the city and police department have changed dramatically in the decade since he’s been away, and he must adapt to a criminal justice system in the midst of its own moment of reckoning. Stabler will aim to find absolution and rebuild his life while leading a new elite task force that is taking apart the city’s most powerful criminal syndicates one by one.
Christopher Meloni (who was an original cast member of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, which is currently in its 22nd season and is the longest-running primetime live-action series of all time) leads the cast, which also features Dylan McDermott, Danielle Moné Truitt, Tamara Taylor and Ainsley Seiger.
Produced by Wolf Entertainment and Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group, Law & Order: Organized Crime was created by Dick Wolf, who executive produces along with Ilene Chaiken, Terry Miller, Fred Berner, Arthur W. Forney and Peter Jankowski.
The riveting drama series, which has already been renewed for a second season, follows a single-arc storyline throughout all eight episodes of the first season.
Fans will also be excited to know that they can expect another crossover event between the two shows on Wednesday, 11 August, bringing Universal TV and M-Net back in sync for the story arc that begins on DStv channel 117 and continues on M-Net.
Premium customers who prefer to watch their shows on Catch Up will find the crossover episodes from Law & Order: Special Victims Unit alongside the new season of Law & Order: Organized Crime on their Explora or DStv app.
