The Law and Order crossover event is titled “Gimme Shelter” and it will begin on September 22 at 8 pm ET with Organized Crimefollowed by SVU and then concluding with Laws & Orders.
Centered around one plotline, the three-series event will see Law & Order’s Detective Frank Cosgrove (Jeffrey Donovan) and Junior Detective Jalen Shaw (played by new cast member Mehcad Brooks) investigate the death of a young girl.
SVU’s Captain Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay) and Organized Crime’s Detective Elliot Stabler (Christopher Meloni) will also step in to help, with Law & Order’s Jack McCoy (Sam Waterston) and Nolan Price (Hugh Dancy) then working to seek justice against an international crime ring.
Law & Order creator Dick Wolf shared a statement with Entertainment Weekly about the crossover, saying: “Nothing demonstrates the power of the Law & Order brand more than an ambitious three-hour event with a story that is truly ripped from the headlines that starts on organized crime, then migrates to SVU and finally the trial on Laws & Orders.
“Rick [Eid] and Gwen [Sigan] did and amazing job writing a compelling script and I can’t think of a bigger and better way to launch the new season of Law & Order Thursdays.”
Eid, who is also the showrunner for Laws & Orders, spoke about the event with TVLineand he said: “Unlike other crossovers, this is structured and produced [on an epic scale].
“It’s not a handoff from one show to the next. It’s really one story that involves all the characters from the different shows.”
