'Law & Order: Hate Crimes' Procedural Is Coming to NBC

The New York-set series, which comes from Law & Order mastermind Dick Wolf and former Law & Order: Special Victims Unit showrunner Warren Leight, is based on the real-life NYPD's Hate Crimes Task Force, which takes on a very topical issue: crimes involving hate and discrimination.

"SVU enters its remarkable 20th season, it is exciting to get back into business with Dick Wolf on a new Law & Order incarnation that feels extremely timely", Lisa Katz, co-president of scripted programming at NBC Entertainment, said in a statement.

Wolf added that he hopes the show will initiate a national dialogue about hate crimes, in the same way he believes "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" normalized conversations about sexual assault.

The series will be set in NY and focus on a team of uniquely capable detectives and investigators who handle racially-motivated crime in the city.

Analyzing that data, The Washington Post found the number of hate crimes involving racial or ethnic bias rose the day after Donald Trump won the 2016 election.

Another, more complex, issue may arise when Mr Dorsey testifies later in the afternoon in front of the House Energy. Earlier this year the company said it was taking aggressive measures to combat inauthentic accounts.

The next chapter in Dick Wolf's criminal justice franchise is officially in the works with NBC ordering 13 episodes of Law & Order: Hate Crimes.

NBC is getting another dose ofLaw & Order. That project ultimately went to CBS and debuts this fall.

In both 2015 and 2016, the Federal Bureau of Investigation saw an increase in the number of hate crimes reported to law enforcement, with a significant uptick in the number of incidents targeting Jews, Muslims and the LGBT community.

There have been multiple attempts by the broadcast networks to launch a series in the past few years about the workings of a hate crimes unit, including one that went to pilot at CBS last year, untitled Jenny Lumet drama.
