I’m a little late to the whole Community obsession. I only started watching it a little over a month ago but have already gobbled up all two and a half seasons. It takes a lot for me to admit this.
Anyway, Community is returning from its hiatus this Thursday and in an upcoming episode they’ll be paying homage to another NBC show. Maybe you’ve heard of it, Law & Order? That one.
In the meantime, Tauntr created this Law & Order Community intro to tide us over. As Abed would say, “cool cool cool.”
After nearly ten years away, Benjamin Bratt will resume his role as Det. Rey Curtis on Law & Order, reports Perez Hilton. The show, currently in its 20th season on NBC, has been slipping in ratings and was moved to Friday nights this year.
“Law & Order” could soon be taking its crime-fighting drama from the gritty back alleys of New York City to the mean streets of London.
NBC and L&O creator Dick Wolf are reportedly in talks with British firm Kudos Film & Television to produce a London version of the long-running series for the U.K.’s ITV network.
The series, tentatively titled “Law & Order: London,” would mark the first British version of the series, which has run for 18 years in the U.S. and given rise to two spin-offs, “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” and “Law & Order: Criminal Intent.”
The British version of the show would also be the first English-speaking version of any series in the L&O franchise outside of the U.S.
Russia has its own local versions of “L&O: SVU” and “L&O: CI,” while France has its own version of “L&O: CI.”
The U.S. series has won an Emmy for outstanding drama and several Emmys for acting. It is TV’s longest-running crime series and is surpassed only by “Gunsmoke” as the longest-running drama series.
After two years, Dennis Farina is set to leave NBC’s hit crime show “Law & Order”, Canadian Press reports.
Farina joined the cast in 2004 to replace Jerry Orbach, who left the show for another “Law & Order” spin-off, “Trial By Jury”, and died later that year. Farina played Detective Joe Fontana.
Farina isn?t the only cast member to leave “Law & Order” this season either.
Assistant district attorney Alexandra Borgia, played by Annie Parisse, was killed off in the season finale, which aired earlier this month.
“Law & Order” is known for its cast changes, which happen very frequently (and usually only with the assistant D.A.s) on the show.
A spokesperson for “Law & Order” did not reveal who would be replacing Farina and Parisse.
