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.
& Order debuts,
