Prime Reorders Law & Order’s Run

Prime’s season-three premiere of Law & Order: Organized Crime has been delayed until later in the year.

It was to have aired 9.30 Thursdays from June 1 but now will be replaced by the documentary series, Branson, an acclaimed HBO biography of the daredevil entrepreneur.

Organized Crime was spun off Special Victims Unit and is the seventh series in the Law & Order franchise.

It has been renewed for a fourth season, which probably will go to air in the US around the same time S3 starts on Prime.

Meanwhile, Law & Order mastermind Dick Wolf has a new true-crime series due to premiere next month on Sky’s Universal TV channel.

Blood and Money (8.30 Sundays from June 25) investigates notorious real-life murder cases and trials instigated by money and greed.

According to the blurb, each episode uses signature L&O elements to explore the crimes through the first-hand accounts of the detectives and prosecutors.

Among the financial scandals ending in bloodshed covered are billionaire Robert Durst, the Menendez brothers, mother-son grifters Sante and Kenneth Kimes Jr., and con artist “Clark Rockefeller.”

Such is the popularity of the Wolf formula that NBC renewed all six of his current series for the network for 2023/4 and last month Universal Television extended its deal with the mega-producer for another two years.
