NBC picks up ‘L&O’ series

Associated Press

Fans of the three “Law & Order” shows can look forward to more — and No. 4.

An agreement between NBC and producer Dick Wolf, announced Wednesday, includes pickups through 2005-06 for “Law & Order,” “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” and “Law & Order: Criminal Intent,” extending them through their 16th, seventh and fifth seasons, respectively.

And it makes official the fourth entry in the franchise, “Law & Order: Trial by Jury,” which will premiere at an unspecified time next season. Jerry Orbach, a longtime star of the original “Law & Order,” was previously announced as a transfer to the new series, described as “a richly textured drama set entirely in the arena of the courthouse.”
