KATHLEEN TURNER GUEST STARS ON NBC'S 'LAW & ORDER,' FEB. 8 AT 10 P.M. ET/PT

GOLDEN GLOBE WINNER AND ACADEMY AWARD NOMINEE KATHLEEN TURNER GUEST STARS ON NBC'S 'LAW & ORDER' AS HIGH-POWER ATTORNEY WITH A DESIGNER DEFENSE, FEB. 8 AT 10 P.M. ET/PT

NEW YORK � February 6, 2006 � Golden Globe winner and Academy Award nominee Kathleen Turner ("Romancing the Stone," "Body Heat") guest stars on NBC's "Law & Order" (Wed., Feb. 8 at 10 p.m. ET/PT). The veteran actress will reunite with her "Serial Mom" (1994) co-star Sam Waterston when she plays high-powered defense attorney Rebecca Shane, representing a privileged student accused of murder. In the episode titled "Magnet," Shane faces off against A.D.A. Jack McCoy pitting a showy designer defense against old-fashioned legal maneuvering, generating sparks in and potentially out of the courtroom.

When Detectives Fontana (Dennis Farina) and Green (Jesse L. Martin) investigate the strangling of a promising Hispanic student at a private magnet school, the men soon learn the victim was selling test answers and writing term papers for more advantaged students � including their prime suspect, Greg Loomis (guest star Jaime McAdams), a trouble-prone senior who would kill just to graduate. After Loomis' arrest, his well-to-do parents hire the best defense money can buy, attorney Shane (Turner), who helps build a designer defense arguing the boy was himself a victim of medication side effects and his parents' high expectations. A.D.A. McCoy (Waterston) spurns any deal made while building a case based on prior incidents involving the accused.

The episode also features S. Epatha Merkerson, Fred Dalton Thompson and Annie Parisse.

"Law & Order" is produced by Wolf Films in association with NBC Universal Television Studio.
