Law and Order

About the Show

Filmed entirely on location in New York City, this realistic program looks at crime and justice from a dual perspective.

In the first half-hour, Detectives Joe Fontana (Dennis Farina) and Edward Green (Jesse L. Martin) investigate crimes and apprehend suspects under the supervision of their precinct lieutenant, Anita Van Buren (S. Epatha Merkerson).

In the second half-hour, the focus shifts to the criminal courts, as Executive Assistant District Attorney Jack McCoy (Sam Waterston) and Assistant District Attorney Alexandra Borgia (Annie Parisse) work within a complicated justice system to prosecute the accused under the guidance of District Attorney Arthur Branch (Fred Thompson).

Some cases may be simple, but most are multi-faceted. The investigations are challenging, prosecutions are complicated, and decisions about legal procedures and plea-bargaining are vexing. In the arduous and complex process of determining guilt and innocence, lives often hang in the balance.

I live in North Bergen, New Jersey and every 6 weeks or so, Law & Order is filming one block over from me on Dell Ave. I was wondering how do I go about offering my house for the show to use. Everytime their have a shoot, I wish their would actually walk one block over and check out my block. It is a pretty quit block, and not much traffic, specially at night when their are filming.
