Currently writing episodes for the two-year-old spin-off of the long running crime-to-court-room drama are Tony-winning Side Man scribe Warren Leight; Stop Kiss author Diana Son; Omnium Gatherum co-writer Theresa Rebeck; Mystery of Attraction dramatist Marlane Mayer; and Liz Benjamin, who once ran the play-reading series at Off-Broadway's Naked Angels. Leight most recently penned an episode that drew from the Jayson Blair scandal that recently rocked The New York Times.

The show—the third series born of the "Law & Order" television empire—stars as its detectives a couple thespians often seen on the stage: Kathryn Erbe, a Tony nominee for The Speed of Darkness and a Steppenwolf Theatre Company ensemble member; and Vincent D'Onofrio, see Off-Broadway in Tooth of Crime. Making up the supporting cast are Jamey Seridan (Julius Ceasar) and Courtney B. Vance (Six Degrees of Separation)
