Law & Order: Special Victims Unit

Based out of the New York City Police Department's 16th precinct in Manhattan, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (SVU) delves into the dark side of the NYC underworld as the detectives investigate and prosecute various sexually oriented crimes including rape, pedophilia, and domestic violence. They also investigate the abuses of children, the disabled and elderly victims of non-sexual crimes who require specialist handling, all while trying to balance the effects of the investigation on their own lives as they try not to let the dark side of these crimes affect them. Its stories also touch on the political and societal issues associated with gender identity, sexual preferences, and equality rights. The unit also works with the Manhattan District Attorney's office as they prosecute cases and seek justice for victims. The series often uses stories that are "ripped from the headlines" or based on real crimes. Such episodes take a real crime and fictionalize it by changing some details.

Law & Order Franchise

6 13 Equinox

DUN-DUN! Name a more iconic sound — we’ll wait. For over three decades, Dick Wolf has ruled the television landscape with the beloved procedural and its many spin-off series. With two “Law & Orders” on NBC’s schedule this upcoming fall season, this veteran franchise, which has been home to big-name guest stars and known for often ripping stories from the headlines, is showing no signs of slowing down.

Hollywood’s 100 Favorite TV Shows (2015)

What's the best TV show of all time? Who knows? This poll is strictly about favorite shows, the programs people in Hollywood hold nearest to their hearts — that remind them of better times or speak to their inner child or inspire their creativity or just help them unwind after a crappy day at the studio — even if one or two of the programs listed here aren't exactly masterpieces of the medium.
