On This Day: Law & Order debuts

It was On This Day in 1990 that NBC first aired Law & Order. It has become one of the longest running dramas in television history and has several equally popular spinoffs. Essentially a crime occurs, the “law” investigates and then the case is handed over to the “order” to prosecute. Sometimes they win; sometimes they loose. Many of the storylines are pulled from headlines across the nation.
