L&O' EP Dick Wolf brings 'DOA' to A&E
NBC is being slow about renewing "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," but Dick Wolf probably isn't sweating it.
The extraordinarily busy super-produced continued his cable expansion this week with A&E's announcement that it was picking up the nonfiction "D.O.A." to series.
The series follows a team of detectives from around the country looking into controversial murder cases with unresolved issues long after the verdict. The show's investigators include cops from Chicago, Miami and New York.
In addition to "SVU," Wolf's current TV slate includes "Chicago Fire" and "Chicago PD" on NBC, as well as the apparently successful "Cold Justice" on TNT.
