NBC is getting in on the true crime fad by recycling a famous old crime and slapping the Law & Order brand name on it. As a series that has always prided itself on tackling crimes “ripped straight from the headlines,” it’s a bit weird to see the show go nearly nonfiction. But if there’s one thing we’ve learned about uber-producer Dick Wolf, it’s that he can squeeze ratings out of anything.
Admittedly, it might be a bit harder this time around. Law & Order True Crime is drawing mixed reviews from critics with Uproxx’s Alan Sepinwall even saying that it plays “like an old-school Law & Order episode elongated well past the point of interest.”
If you’re still interested, here are all the ways you can live-stream tonight’s series premiere.
