Law & Order: Special Victims Unit

1999-Present Drama

Created in 1999 as a spin-off of the very popular show Law & Order, this hard-hitting and emotional crime drama follows detectives and prosecutors of a special victims unit, or SVU, in New York City. The episodes are loosely based on high profile, heinous sex crimes that have received media attention. The show is led by a seasoned veteran named Det. Elliot Stabler, and his partner Olivia Benson as they try to solve crimes that are focused on victims of sexual abuse, rape, as well as cases involving children. As the detectives solve the crimes, we also get a first-hand look into just how much these difficult and heinous crimes affect their relationships, and their lives.
