Law & Order: Special Victims Unit
Tackling hard-hitting social issues ripped from newspaper headlines, this edgy police procedural follows members of the NYPD Special Victims Unit as they investigate sexual offenses such as rape, incest, pedophilia, torture and serial murder. Created by Dick Wolf, this award-winning Law & Order spinoff co-stars Christopher Meloni and Mariska Hargitay as seasoned detectives Elliot Stabler and Olivia Benson.
