Court TV going to 'Trial'

10 October 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Court TV has snapped up rights to all 13 episodes of NBC's short-lived series Law & Order: Trial by Jury from NBC Universal Domestic Television Distribution. The deal for the most recent series in Dick Wolf's franchise includes one never-before-seen episode of the courtroom drama, which stars Bebe Neuwirth and Fred Dalton Thompson. "Given our viewers' interest in dramatic stories of life in the courthouse, we believe this 'Law & Order' series will work particularly well on Court TV," chairman and CEO Henry Schleiff said. The network will start airing the series -- which debuted on NBC in March -- in December as a two-hour block from 7-9 p.m. Saturdays. »

Wolf, NBC get 'Conviction' for midseason

6 October 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

NBC is back in business with Law & Order guru Dick Wolf, ordering a legal drama for midseason. Wolf Films and NBC Universal Television Studio will deliver 13 episodes of the tentatively titled Conviction, an hourlong series that focuses on young assistant district attorneys in New York. The series will not carry the Law & Order label; Wolf's attempt to add a fourth extension of his hit brand, Law & Order: Trial by Jury, met ratings trouble last midseason and was subsequently canceled. »

Wolf Films, NBC Uni ink Eid

7 August 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Writer-producer Rick Eid has signed a two-year overall deal with Dick Wolf's Wolf Films and NBC Universal Television Studio. The pact calls for Eid to help develop Wolf's new series in the pipeline for NBC revolving around the world of assistant district attorneys in New York (HR 7/26); it is not expected to be a Law & Order-branded series. Eid knows the attorney world pretty well, having worked as a lawyer for the top New York firm of Skadden Arps before shifting career gears to writing for television. Last season, Eid worked as supervising producer on the short-lived Law & Order: Trial by Jury. In addition to developing the new project, Eid also will serve as a co-executive producer on Law & Order in the upcoming season. »

'Jury' out but sets are in for Wolf's latest

26 July 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Law & Order: Trial By Jury might have been canceled by NBC, but its set is getting a new lease on life now that the peacock is developing a new series from Dick Wolf about assistant district attorneys in New York. The Trial By Jury set will remain standing for at least a year in New York via a mutual agreement between both Dick Wolf Films and NBC Universal, Wolf said Monday at the Television Critics Assn.'s summer press tour in Beverly Hills. The sets are expected to be used in the production on the planned ADA series, which was pitched to NBC brass late last week. "I fully expect to be in production within the time period" of the agreement on keeping the sets up, Wolf said. »

L.A. Screenings entice Canada

19 May 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

TORONTO -- Canadian broadcasters coming to the Los Angeles Screenings will need to lay down big bets during the coming week if they want to catch CTV, the current primetime ratings leader here. CTV enjoyed a stellar 2004-05 season, walking away with 18 of the top 20 primetime shows on Canadian TV, virtually all American shows. "We want to maintain our position," Susanne Boyce, CTV president of programming, said midway through the upfronts. CTV has a few holes to fill after shows like Joan of Arcadia, 8 Simple Rules and Law & Order: Trial by Jury were canceled, but Boyce promises no major programming shifts this fall. The main task for rival CanWest Mediaworks, which late last year brought in a trio of Americans led by former Bravo Networks president Kathleen Dore to replace top programr Doug Hoover and head of sales Jack Tomik, will be making up for the loss of such hit series as Friends, Frasier and now Everybody Loves Raymond. »

Net pre-upfront activity peaks

13 May 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

In a flurry of pre-upfront activity Thursday, top brass at the broadcast networks and major studios were busy determining the fate of new and returning shows, lining up showrunners and swapping information about prospective scheduling moves to be unveiled at next week's fall schedule presentations in New York. Among the bigger surprises, sources said NBC was not expected to renew Law & Order: Trial by Jury, which has had an uphill climb ratingswise on Friday night since its midseason debut this year. Reps at NBC, like the other networks, declined comment on any rumors regarding pickups or cancellations. NBC kicks off the schedule unveilings Monday with its presentation at Radio City Music Hall. Among the peacock's new series pickups are expected to be Warner Bros. TV's E-Ring, the Pentagon-themed drama from Jerry Bruckheimer TV; NBC Universal TV Studio's Fathom, about a mysterious deep-sea creature; and Touchstone TV's Inconceivable, set at a fertility clinic. Book of Daniel, a drama about an unconventional priest, had been a hot prospect to land on the fall schedule but is said to have cooled off considerably during the past few days. »

Fox wins Wed. with 'Idol,' NBC helped by 'Law'

4 May 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

NBC got a big boost Tuesday with special crossover episodes of Law & Order: SVU and Law & Order: Trial by Jury. Fox took the nightly win as usual, with American Idol dominating at 8 p.m. dispute a dip in the turnout from the previous week and 9 p.m. drama House hitting its second-highest marks to date. Idol, which has been in the headlines in advance of tonight's ABC News expose alleging that judge Paula Abdul gave behind-the-scenes coaching to a contestant on the show in 2003, opened the night for Fox with an average of 23.8 million viewers and 9.7 rating/27 share in the adults 18-49 demographic, according to preliminary estimates from Nielsen Media Research. House (17.3 million, 7.0/17) held the lion's share of that lead-in at 9 p.m. »

Weekly ratings: 'Idol' extends Fox roll

8 March 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Three nights of American Idol helped Fox extend its winning streak among adults 18-49 to six weeks, while CBS was the most-watched network for the week of Feb. 28, which included the final three days of the February sweep and featured the final bow for ABC's NYPD Blue and the debut of NBC's Law & Order: Trial by Jury. The Tuesday edition of American Idol (26.9 million, 11.0 rating/28 share) was the No. 1 program for the week in total viewers and adults 18-49. Also on Tuesday, Fox's freshman drama House, MD (15.6 million, 6.2/15) hit another series high, drawing its largest audience ever. The medical drama, recently picked up for a second season, ran against strong competition in the 9 p.m. hour, including the retrospective special NYPD Blue: A Final Tribute, which led to the series finale of the groundbreaking cop drama and the season premiere of The Amazing Race 7. »

Verdict mixed for 'Trial by Jury'

6 March 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Law & Order: Trial by Jury, the latest incarnation of NBC's enduring cops-and-courts drama powerhouse, got off to a solid if not spectacular start for NBC with a sneak peek debut on Thursday in ER's 10 p.m. time slot, followed on Friday by its regular Friday 10 p.m. time-slot debut. That hour already has been competitive this season between two new dramas, NBC's Medical Investigation, which has shown signs of life since its fall debut, and CBS' Numbers, a midseason entry that opened strongly in January, though its numbers since have cooled considerably. On Friday, Law & Order: Trial by Jury opened to 14.4 million viewers and a 4.1 rating/12 share in the adults 18-49 demographic, according to preliminary estimates from Nielsen Media Research. That marked NBC's highest demo numbers in the time slot in 16 months (excluding last summer's Olympics coverage), and it grew from its lead-in, a special 9 p.m. repeat of Law & Order: SVU (11.3 million, 3.2/10). Law & Order: Trial by Jury also generated strong sampling in its Thursday showcase slot (17.3 million, 6.2/17). »

NBC's new 'Law' gets respect, CBS gets Thurs. win

4 March 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The latest incarnation of the Law & Order brand got off to a good start Thursday for NBC with a sneak preview airing in ER's 10 p.m. time slot. Law & Order: Trial by Jury bowed to an average of 17.1 million viewers and 6.2 rating/17 share in the adults 18-49 demographic, according to preliminary estimates from Nielsen Media Research. The drama, which moves to its regular Friday 10 p.m. time slot tonight, built on its lead-in from 9 p.m.'s The Apprentice (14.8 million, 6.9/17) in viewers and easily topped a repeat of CBS' Without a Trace (14.9 million, 5.1/14). But overall, CBS carried the night by a wide margin. Even with a repeat airing, 9 p.m.'s CSI: Crime Scene Investigation (25.5 million, 8.5/21) ranked as the night's most-watched program while Survivor: Palau (21.8 million, 8.5/23) got the eye network off to a strong start at 8 p.m. »

Wolf makes case for 'L&O'

16 February 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Dick Wolf on Tuesday lamented that his hit Law & Order franchise is scheduled against some stiff competition but said he expects the NBC series -- particularly the original -- to endure for the long haul. "The goal is to beat Gunsmoke in four years as the longest-running scripted show in the history of television," said Wolf, who was the featured Industry Forum Luncheon speaker at the Museum of Television & Radio in Beverly Hills. The original L&O has been airing on NBC since 1990 and has been followed by three spinoffs, including the upcoming Law & Order: Trial by Jury, which debuts March 3. »
