“Law & Order” 9/11 Trial Episode?
Producers of NBC’s veteran crime drama Law & Order are reportedly considering one of their infamous “Ripped From The Headlines” storylines inspired by the forthcoming criminal trial of 9/11 conspirators.
Series producer Rene Balcer spoke publicly about the idea during a recent program at The Paley Center celebrating the show’s 20th anniversary, The New York Post reports. Earlier this month, the U.S. Justice Department announced that five conspirators in the Sept. 11, 2001 attack on America will be tried in the murders of the nearly 3,000 who died in the 2001 attacks.
No airdate has been set for the proposed episode.
