"For years, I've been reading in the trades how well the "CSI's" do on off-network free TV. I'm delighted that SVU and CI will now have the opportunity to do the same," said Dick Wolf, the emmy award-winning creator and producer of the Law & Order franchise.

"We are excited to bring these high quality, off-network procedural dramas to local broadcasters in national syndication," said Barry Wallach, President of NBC Universal Domestic Television Distribution. "Local stations and advertisers are thrilled about this unique opportunity."

The drama follows Detective Elliot Stabler (Christopher Meloni), a seasoned veteran of the unit who has seen it all, and his partner, Detective Olivia Benson (Emmy award-winner, Mariska Hargitay), whose difficult past - a child of rape - is the reason she joined the unit. "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" is a Wolf Films production in association with NBC Universal Television Studio. Wolf, is creator and executive producer, Neal Baer, Ted Kotcheff and Peter Jankowski are the executive producers. "Law & Order: SVU" returns to NBC for it's ninth season on September 25 at 10/9c.
