Law & Order was an American television show that was on NBC from September 13, 1990, to May 24, 2010. It is a police procedural and a drama. When Law & Order was cancelled (meaning NBC stopped showing new episodes), it was the longest primetime crime drama show ever in America.
Many of the crimes in the episodes were "ripped from the headlines", meaning they were based on crimes that really happened. Episodes of the show were usually split into two parts. The first part would show the crime, the police looking for the suspect (the person they think did the crime), and the suspect being arrested. This is the "Law" part. The second part, the "Order" part, would show the trial and whether or not the suspect did the crime.
