Law & Order: Hate Crimes
Law & Order: Hate Crimes is the seventh series in the long-running Law & Order franchise.
The latest installment is based on New York's actual Hate Crimes Task Force, the second oldest bias-based task force in the U.S. The unit, which pledges to uphold a zero tolerance policy against discrimination of any kind, works under the NYPD's real Special Victims Unit and often borrows SVU's detectives to assist in their investigations.
Law & Order: Hate Crimes is set in New York City, where crimes motivated by discrimination are vigorously investigated by an elite, specially trained team of investigators. Going behind the headlines and viral videos, these diverse, dedicated and passionate detectives will stop at nothing to bring these criminals to justice.
Initially given a 13-episode straight-to-series order in September 2018, NBC later announced on March 4, 2019 that the series would be pushing its plans moving forward. The project remains in active development at the network as everyone needed more time to flesh out the concept. The new Law & Order series was to be introduced as a planted spinoff from SVU, with the first incarnation of the new unit appearing in the latter part of its 20th season.
