Law & Order: Special Victims Unit is an American police procedural television drama series set in New York City, where it is also primarily produced. Created and produced by Dick Wolf and airs on NBC, the series premiered on September 20, 1999 as a spin-off of Wolf's successful crime drama Law & Order. Currently in its 11th season, the series has produced 234 episodes to date.
Law & Order: Special Victims Unit originally centered almost exclusively around the detectives of the Special Victims Unit in a fictional version of the 16th Precinct of the New York City Police Department. In the style of the original Law & Order, episodes are often "ripped from the headlines" or loosely based on a real crime that received media attention. The show stars Christopher Meloni as Detective Elliot Stabler, a senior detective in the Manhattan SVU, and Mariska Hargitay as his partner, Detective Olivia Benson, a rookie to the unit who is the child of a rape. As the series progressed, additional supporting characters were added as allies of the detectives in the Manhattan District Attorney's office and the medical examiner's office. Typical episodes follow the detectives and their allies as they investigate and prosecute sexually based offenses.
Law & Order: Special Victims Unit is currently the highest-rated series of the Law & Order franchise, and is one of NBC's top rated shows. The series has been nominated for and won numerous awards, including an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for Hargitay, the first Emmy to be received by an actor on any Law & Order series.

Series overview

"In the criminal justice system, sexually based offenses are considered especially heinous. In New York City, the dedicated detectives who investigate these vicious felonies are members of an elite squad known as the Special Victims Unit. These are their stories."
—Opening narration by Steven Zirnkilton[1]

Law & Order: Special Victims Unit follows the detectives and prosecutors associated with the New York City Police Department's 16th precinct, otherwise known as the Special Victims Unit, as they investigate sexually based offenses. Originally the show focused around the senior detectives, Elliot Stabler and John Munch, and their partners, Olivia Benson and Brian Cassidy. The detectives were supervised by veteran Captain Donald Cragen and received support from Detectives Monique Jeffries and Ken Briscoe.[1] When Cassidy transferred to Narcotics after thirteen episodes, Jeffries partnered with Munch until the beginning of the second season, when he was permanently partnered with Detective Fin Tutuola.[2][3] The unit did not receive a full time assistant district attorney until the second season, when Alexandra Cabot was assigned full time to work with the detectives.[3] After Cabot's departure in season five, she is replaced by Casey Novak and Kim Greylek before returning to the series in season ten.[4][5][6]
Law & Order: Special Victims Unit focuses on crimes of a sexual nature. While the victim is often murdered, this is not always the case, and victims often play prominent roles in episodes. The series frequently uses stories that are "ripped from the headlines" or based on real crimes. Such episodes take a real crime and fictionalize it by changing the details.[7]

Episodes

Law & Order: Special Victims Unit is currently in its eleventh season. Each season consists of 19 to 25 episodes; each episode lasts approximately sixty minutes including commercials. There have been 235 episodes between 1999 and 2010.

Crossovers

During the first season, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit crossed over with the original Law & Order. In the episode "Entitled (Part 1)," the detectives investigate a shooting and initially focus on the girlfriend of the victim. Another shooting occurs, however, and the detectives find a connection with a case being investigated by the 27th precinct. The episode is concluded in an episode of the original series, though the SVU episode could potentially be a stand alone episode.[8][9][10]
The show crossed over with Law & Order: Trial by Jury in season six with the episode "Night". Benson and Stabler investigate the rape of a young Haitian girl with a bad heart that causes her death. The duo trace the murder to a loner who is a member of a powerful family with political ties. When Novak is assaulted, Arthur Branch reassigns the case to ADA Tracey Kibre. The episode is continued in the Trial by Jury episode "Day."[11][12][13]
During the seventh season, the series once again crossed over with Law & Order. The episode "Design" features a mother/daughter con artist team who are able to escape justice for their crimes. They surface again in the original series' sixteenth series episode "Flaw" when Detectives Joe Fontana and Ed Green investigate the murder of a man who died with a cell phone in his hand on which he was attempting to call Benson.[14][15][16]

Russian adaptation

In 2007, the Russian production company Studio 2B purchased the rights to create an adaptation of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit for Russian television. Titled Закон и порядок: отдел оперативных расследований (Law & Order: Division of Field Investigation), the series starred Alice Bogart as Major Olga Bobrova. The series follows a unit of investigators in Moscow whose job it is to investigate crimes of a sexual nature. Twelve episodes of 48 minutes each were produced and aired on NTV.The series is produced by Pavel Korchagin, Felix Kleiman, and Edward Verzbovski and directed by Dmitry Brusnikin. The screenplays are written by Efim Ostrovsky, Sergei Kuznetsov, Elena Karavaeshnikova, and Maya Shapovalova.[17]

Production

History and development

The idea for Law & Order: Special Victims Unit originated with the 1986 case of Robert Chambers, who strangled a woman during what he claimed to be consensual "rough sex" in Manhattan's Central Park. The crime inspired Dick Wolf to write the story for the season one episode of Law & Order titled "Kiss the Girls and Make them Die." Even after writing the episode, however, the case continued to haunt Wolf, who wanted to go deeper into the psychology of crimes to examine the role of human sexuality.[18]
The original title of the show was Sex Crimes, reflecting the sexual nature of the crimes depicted on the show. Initially there was concern among the producers that, should Sex Crimes fail, identifying the new show with the Law & Order franchise could hurt the original show. Additionally, Ted Kotcheff wanted to create a new series that was not dependent upon the original series for success. Wolf felt, however, that it was important and commercially desirable to have "Law & Order" in the title, and he initially proposed the title of the show be Law & Order: Sex Crimes. Barry Diller, then head of Studios USA, was concerned about the title, however, and it was changed to Law & Order: Special Victims Unit to reflect the actual unit of the NYPD that handles sexually based offenses.[19] The first episode, "Payback," premiered on NBC on September 20, 1999.[20]

Filming

SVU shooting on location in Central Park at night
Like the original series, the majority of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit is filmed on location in New York City. New York is Dick Wolf's hometown and a city of contrasts, inspiring artists and architects while struggling with how to keep its eight million inhabitants and visitors safe. In all five of New York's boroughs can be found enticingly rich neighborhoods or those that are the epitome of urban decay. The NYPD encounters calamities on a daily basis that would make most people cringe with horror and, as a result, everything needed for the show is easily accessible. This backdrop provides the writers a supply of ideal locations to choose from.[21]
When searching for a place to film the interiors of the show, the producers discovered that there were no suitable studio spaces available in New York. As a result, a space was chosen in nearby North Bergen, New Jersey that had sat empty for some time. With an air-conditioning system, adequate parking, and 53,000 square feet of stage area, the producers felt the New Jersey location made sense. Despite the fact that indoor scenes are filmed in New Jersey, the crew still consider the show a New York based show since the majority of outdoor filming still takes place in New York.[22]

Broadcast history

The show originally aired on Monday nights at 9:00 p.m. ET for the first nine episodes, from September 20 through November 29, 1999. It was then shifted to Friday nights at 10 p.m. ET on January 7, 2000, and remained in that time slot through the end of Season 4 on May 16, 2003. SVU was placed in its current time slot for the Season 5 premiere on September 23, 2003 Tuesday nights at 10:00 p.m. ET and occasionally runs previous shows on Saturday nights at 10:00 p.m. ET. The USA Network also runs previous episodes on weekday afternoons, generally in a block from 3 to 5 p.m. ET.
The series vacated its Tuesday 10:00 p.m. ET slot in fall 2009 when NBC began a primetime weeknight Jay Leno series. Law and Order: Special Victims Unit currently airs on Wednesday nights at 9:00 p.m. ET, while CTV will still air SVU on Tuesdays at 10:00 in Canada. The eleventh season premiered its new time slot on September 23, 2009.[23] After the 2010 Winter Olympics, SVU will be moving up an hour to 10:00 p.m. ET, starting March 3, 2010.

Casting and characters

Wong as Huang, Tamara Tunie as Warner, Christopher Meloni as Stabler, Mariska Hargitay as Benson, Dann Florek as Cragen, Richard Belzer as Munch, and Ice-T as Tutuola.
Casting for the lead characters of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit occurred in the spring of 1999. Dick Wolf, along with officials from NBC and Studios USA were at the final auditions for the two leads at Rockefeller Center. The last round had been narrowed down to six finalists. For the female lead, Detective Olivia Benson, Samantha Mathis, Reiko Aylesworth, and Mariska Hargitay were being considered. For the male role, Detective Elliot Stabler, the finalists were Tim Matheson, Nick Chinlund, and Christopher Meloni. Meloni and Hargitay had auditioned in the final round together and, after the actors left, there was a moment of dead silence, after which Wolf blurted out, "Oh well. There's no doubt who we should choose–Hargitay and Meloni." Wolf believed the duo had the perfect chemistry together from the first time he saw them together, and they ended up being his first choice. Garth Ancier, then head of NBC Entertainment, agreed, and the rest of the panel assembled began voicing their assent.[24]
The first actor to be cast for the show was Dann Florek. .Florek had originated the character of Don Cragen in the 1988 pilot for Law & Order and played the character for the first three seasons of the show until he was fired on the orders of network executives who wanted to add female characters to the all male primary cast.^ Jesse McCartney Add comments Jesse McCartney guest stars on Law and Order SVU tomorrow night (10/9c on NBC).

He maintained a friendly relationship with Wolf, however, and went on to direct three episodes of the original series as well as occasionally guest starring on the show. Shortly after Florek reprised his role for Exiled: A Law & Order Movie, he received a call to be on Sex Crimes.[25] Initially reluctant to the idea, he eventually agreed to star on the show as Cragen on the assurance that he would not be asked to audition for the role.[26]
Shortly after the cancellation of Homicide: Life on the Street, Richard Belzer heard that Benjamin Bratt had left Law & Order. Belzer called his manager and instructed his manager to call Wolf and pitch the idea for Belzer's character from Homicide, John Munch, to become Lennie Briscoe's new partner since they had previously teamed in three Homicide crossovers. Wolf loved the idea, but had already cast Jesse L. Martin as Briscoe's new partner. The idea was reconfigured, however, to have Munch on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit instead.[26] Since the character of Munch was created by David Simon and adapted for Homicide by Tom Fontana and Barry Levinson, the addition of Munch to the cast required the consent of all three. The appropriate agreements were reached and, while Fontana and Levinson agreed to wave their royalty rights, contracts with Simon require that he be paid royalties for any new show that Munch is a main character in; as a result, Simon receives royalties every time Munch appears in an episode of the show.[27]
Dean Winters was cast as Munch's partner, Brian Cassidy, at the insistence of Belzer. Belzer looked at Winters as a sort of little brother, and told Wolf, "Well, I'll do this new show of yours, SVU, only if you make Dean Winters my partner."[26] Wolf did make Winters Belzer's partner, but he was contractually obligated to his other show at the time, the HBO drama Oz. Since the role on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit was only initially meant to be a few episodes, Winters was forced to leave when it was time to film Oz again.[28] The void left by Winters' departure was filled for the remainder of the season by Michelle Hurd as Detective Monique Jefferies, a character who Wolf promised that, despite starting out as a minor character with one scene in the pilot, would eventually develop. The character did not develop, however, and doubts surfaced about whether Jefferies was the right character to be Munch's permanent partner. Hurd left the show at the beginning of the second season to join the cast of Leap Years.[29] Munch's permanent partner came in the form of rapper turned actor Ice-T. Ice-T had originally worked with Wolf on New York Undercover and Exiled. Ice-T originally agreed to do only four episodes of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, but he quickly gained affection for the ensemble nature of the cast. He relocated to New York City before his four episode contract was up, and stayed with the show as Munch's permanent partner, Detective Fin Tutuola, since.[30]
Stephanie March had never appeared on television before being cast on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit nor did she watch much television. Nevertheless, March was cast as Assistant District Attorney Alexandra Cabot at the beginning of season two but still believed that, due to the grim nature of the series, it would be short lived. She stayed with the series for three seasons, however, and left when she believed she had reached the natural conclusion of where the character was likely to develop. She would later reprise the character as a guest appearance in the fifth season and as a regular character on the short-lived Wolf series, Conviction, where she was promised more to do. She returned to the show in the tenth season after the departure of Michaela McManus from the cast when Neal Baer proposed Cabot receive a character arc to revitalize the second part of the season and would remain for season eleven.[31][32]
Diane Neal had previously guest starred on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit in the second season before being cast as Cabot's replacement, Casey Novak, in the fifth season. Neal remained with the show through the end of the ninth season.[33] Tamara Tunie was cast as Medical Examiner Melinda Warner in season two after working with Wolf previously on New York Undercover, Feds, and Law & Order, and proved popular enough to be moved to the show's opening credits in the seventh season.[34] B.D. Wong was asked to film four episodes as Dr. George Huang, a FBI forensic psychiatrist and criminal profiler on loan to the Special Victims Unit. After his four episodes, he was asked to stay on with the show.[35]
After starring in the Dick Wolf-produced Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee and guest starring as Detective Chester Lake in the eighth season, Wolf felt that Adam Beach would be a good addition to the cast and asked him to be a permanent member beginning with the ninth season. Although Beach felt the role was a "dream role," the character proved unpopular with fans who felt that he was designed to gradually write out either Richard Belzer or Ice-T and, feeling there were too many police characters on the show, Beach left the show after only one season.[36] Michaela McManus was originally felt to be too young for the role of an ADA before being cast as ADA Kim Greylek in the show's tenth season. McManus remained with the series only half a season, however, before departing for unspecified reasons.[37]

Reception

U.S. television ratings

SVU premiered on a Monday in 1999. After the November 29 episode, the show was sent to Friday nights where it found its audience and following its first season became a top 20 show. Beginning with the fifth season, the show was aired on Tuesdays to compete with CBS' Judging Amy and ABC's NYPD Blue. In recent years, SVU has consistently outperformed Law & Order in the Nielsen ratings for first run episodes. Despite this, SVU has never eclipsed the peak popularity of Law & Order.

Judge Terhune: And you want me to disturb the sanctity of the dead on your say so?

[The discovery of a hidden camera in a public toilet turns into a chase for a pedophile when the voyeur's recordings show a sexual assault on a minor.]
Munch: Gives whole new meaning to "live, streaming video."

Benson: Okay. Let's not go there.

Fin: [On the phone, regarding the toilet cam] To be honest with you, I have no idea how we're gonna identify the victims.

Stabler: Bunch of dead bodies.

Huang: Then you think this is a big waste of your time.
Munch: Hell, no. I think we should all sit around all day and chat about our feelings.
Huang: Well, what do you want to talk about?
Munch: Well, it doesn't really matter. We can all talk until we're blue in the face. It's not going to change the fact that the human race is ever-evolving and will always come up with elaborate, repulsive, and depraved ways to kill each other.
Huang: And that's really the hard part for you, isn't it?
Munch: What?
Huang: That you can still be repulsed. As cynical as you try to be. You can still be sickened.

Benson: Dr. Blair, do you realize that disseminating pornography to a minor is a felony?
Dr. Blair: I showed them art books.
Stabler: Doc, I saw the art in your office and even I was uncomfortable at how many phalluses were on display.

Small girl: I don't know. But he's bad. I saw him smoking.

Boy: Just because I'm a recess monitor, doesn't mean I'm a narc.

CSU: They got pixie sticks.

CSU: [Displays bagged scissors] Found these in the school dumpster.
Fin: She means I found them under the tuna casserole. All she did is stand and point.

Headmistress: When Emma's mother enrolled her at St. Victor's, she told us she was a single parent. She hid the fact that Emma has another parent. A woman.
Stabler: Emma's mom is gay.
Benson: So what's the big deal? Same sex couples raise children all the time.
Headmistress: Yes, but they don't usually lie about being gay and enroll their children in conservative Catholic schools.

Headmistress: How do you teach catechism with Emma in the classroom? "Homosexuality is a sin, kids, but oh, that's okay, Emma. Your moms are good people otherwise.

Stabler: In the six months since Zoe and Kate took St. Victor's to court, the whole family's been harassed. They've even changed their phone numbers twice.
Fin: Didn't do any good. Broken windows, graffiti on the doors. Zoe's filed six reports. Nobody's ever been charged.
Munch: Since when did New York become a red state?

Fin: But Zoe wanted to make a point. Take the school to court. Win one for the cause.
Munch: Someone's got to fight the fight.
Fin: It shouldn't be an eight year old.

Stabler: She's still Emma's guardian while Kate's in the hospital.
Lawyer: De facto guardian, yes. But the state doesn't afford her the right to make decisions for Emma. She's no more her parent or guardian than a babysitter would be.
Benson: You've raised Emma ever since she was born. How can you say that you're nothing more than a babysitter?
Zoe: I should have legal rights over Emma. But I don't. So why should I claim them now when it would only hurt her?
Lawyer: Confession's out. You want to talk to Emma again, go through me.

Novak: How'd it go?
Benson: Great. I love putting 8-year olds in lockup overnight.

Infected [7.13]

[When the accused killer of a teen's mother is released due to lack of evidence, the youth exacts his own justice by killing the man.]

DJ: Man, I ain't carrying, alright? And you can search me.
Munch: (Opens a front-loading washing machine and finds dozens of packets of crystal meth) Look at what I found.
Fin: Oughta be worth a couple of grand.
DJ: Can't pin that on me.
Fin: Yeah, but I might be able to pin a murder on you, DJ.
DJ: What?
Fin: The rape and murder of Monica Phelps.
DJ: No no no. I did not murder her.
Munch: (Studies bottles of detergent on top of the machine) So what should I use? Lemony goodness, or Mount Stream?

DJ: Thought she was working at a hot dog stand. She wouldn't be frying franks if she was dealing. Now wasn't I helpful.
Munch: Very. (He turns on the laundry machine.)

Non-profit worker: Ted has dedicated his life to helping people that other would consider trash. Addicts, whores, and degenerates. And he gets nothing in return. Tell that to the people who sent you. (She storms off.)
Benson: Well, she's got nothing to hide.
Stabler: Nooooooo, not at all.

Ted: (To underage girl in motel room) Why don't you just take off your clothes, and we'll have ourselves a good time.
Stabler: (Bursts into room with a drawn gun) Can we have a good time too?
Fin: (Entering) Me too. I bet we can all have a lot of fun.

Ted's lawyer: He was attempting to have sex with a minor, and you know this because you can read his mind?
Benson: We know this because he paid a minor $2,000 to have sex.

Stabler: Do you know how much you've spent on them, Ted? Have you done the math? Hm? $2 million. $2 million dollars worth of sex?

Ted: I need to say this. I've been unfaithful. Many times. But I've never paid anyone for sex. They were my girlfriends.
Stabler: Wow. You're a busy guy, huh.
Benson: So all the financial transactions that happened after the sex were completely unrelated.
Ted: I wanted to help them. I loved them.

Conrad: This study equates gun violence with an infectious disease. Anyone exposed to it is infected. Now you may not agree or like this study. Gun manufacturers don't like it either. It goes against their mantra: "Guns don't kill people. People kill people." But this study points to something that is almost unspeakable in today's gun culture, and that is that the blame for violence can be directly placed on the gun. Once you see someone squeeze the trigger, it's easier to do it yourself. Nathan saw his mother shot to death in front him, and at that moment he contracted the disease. It wasn't his choice, any more than it is your choice to catch a cold after someone sneezed on you. Violence is the disease. Guns are the virus. And we have an epidemic on our hands.

Novak: Does witnessing a murder justify a murder?
Benson: It doesn't justify it. But it might explain it.

Novak: You gave the jury a reason to acquit.
Benson: I was trying to tell the truth. I'm sorry.

Conrad: He's not testifying, period.
Donnelly: Let him.
Conrad: And let him incriminate himself?
Donnelly: Exactly
Conrad: Are you crazy?
Donnelly: [To Novak] What do you think?
Novak: A jury's been sworn in on a criminal case, a witness has testified. Do you see where this is heading?
Conrad: If you screw us over on this--
Novak: Trust me.

Lawyer: Your honor, this is a setup, perpetrated by the DA's office.
Judge Malloy: Mr. Getty, I'd agree with you, except that you're the one who called Mr. Phelps to the stand. This action is dismissed. Court is adjourned.

Blast [7.14]

[When an 8-year-old girl is kidnapped on her way home from school, DNA tests on the blood found in the abductor's abandoned van reveal she has leukemia.]

Stabler: "Password protected."
Computer Tech: My 6-year old could hack this.

Stabler: No way. You're not doing this.
Warner: I can take care of myself.
Stabler: No offense, but med school doesn't exactly prepare you for something like this.
Warner: The Air Force did. They paid for medical school. I did two tours at Ramstien during Desert Storm. I know how to handle myself around men with guns.

Warner: Give me a gun.

Danny: No. Everybody stays. They're my ticket out of here.
Stabler: You don't need them. You've got me. I'm a cop. So's every guy out there. They're not going to risk my life. As long as you're with me, you're safe.

Warner: He's my patient, Elliott. I'm not leaving without him.

Stabler: You okay?
Warner: Yeah. I got to pick up my daughter from school.

Manipulated [7.15]

[After a woman's body is found, Benson and Stabler delve into her private life and finally learn that in addition to being a respected lawyer, she was also a stripper.]

Fin: Hey, Tim. I hear you got a great wiener.

Benson: What do PNCs do?
Munch: Profit from the fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Fin: Don't get him started on Dick Cheney again.

Munch: I miss the day when revenge just meant shooting someone.
Warner: And I miss the days when I never had to say I ran more DNA tests on that semen.

[Cragen looks at a photograph of the women's shoe recovered at the scene.]

Munch: Cinderella's definitely a woman. Frank needs to join the Hair Club for Men.

Cragen: Dani doing okay?
Stabler: Yeah.
Cragen: See a future for her here in SVU?
Stabler: Sure.
Cragen: Don't want your old partner back.
Stabler: Since when was that up to me?

Mrs. Hovis: I haven't seen Frank in years.
Munch: We think he may have been in an accident, Mrs. Hovis.
Mrs. Hovis: Well, excuse me if I don't bust out weeping. The only time I hear about that deadbeat is when you cops come looking for him.
Munch: Mind if we check around?
Mrs. Hovis: Yes I do. I'm a respectable woman, I live alone, and I don't want the neighbors talking.
[Fin comes around the corner of the house, holding a pair of men's pants.]
Fin: They already are. Found these on your clothesline. Where'd they come from?
Mrs. Hovis: How should I know? Must've fallen out of a plane on the way into Kennedy.
Munch: I think I hear someone inside.
Fin: Don't worry, ma'am. We'll protect you.
[Munch and Fin push their way past Mrs. Hovis into the house.]
Mrs. Hovis: Hey!

[Fin pushes open the broom closet door and finds Frank in his underwear, crouching inside.]
Fin: Frank, that's pathetic.
Mrs. Hovis: [Acting astonished.] How'd he get in there?

[Stabler is stabbed in the chest with a pen.]
Beck: You gonna faint on me?

Beck: I couldn't have stayed so calm.
Stabler: Yeah you could. You know the right thing to do.
Beck: Just because you know what's right doesn't mean you do it.

Kathleen Stabler: Are you serious, dad? A kid stabbed you?
Kathy Stabler: Your father probably yelled at him.
Kathleen: Yeah, for not doing his homework.

[In the hospital, after Eden sets fire to Beck's apartment.]
Beck: Why'd you do it?
Eden: So you'd never leave me.
Beck: You could have killed us both.
Eden: Then we'd be together.

[Stabler finds Beck distraught outside Eden's hospital room.]
Stabler: Dani. This is not your fault.
Beck: I can't do this.
Stabler: Why?
Beck: I fix things. It's who I am. But I can't fix that little girl.
Stabler: That's not what we do.
Beck: But I wanted to. And I thought I could.

Beck: How do you keep doing this job?
Stabler: Because I have to.
Beck: Why? We don't make a difference.
Stabler: Dani, you can do this.
Beck:Are you asking me to stay?

Tierney: I don't know what your dad did to you, sweetie, but you need professional help.

Stabler: Eternal damnation is not a police matter.

Stabler: [To Huang] All you shrinks talk about is closure.

Huang: You can't rush Sheherezade.

Mrs. Colino: [To poker partners] Girls! I'm a widow!

Fin: We too busy eatin'.
