Law & Order cancelled

It’s official: the 20-year-old legal drama “Law & Order” will prosecute its last case this year.

The cancellation is not only distressing to New York City actors, whose guest appearances covered their rent and food bills, but also to prosecutors all over who could only watch and dream of getting away with the courtroom antics by ADA Jack McCoy (now by ADA Mike Cutter). Badgering witnesses, confessional breakdowns on the stand and a 99% conviction rate — all in a day’s work in the fictional Manhattan courtroom.

Farewell L&O. I’ll miss ya. To read more about the cancellation, click here.
