In May 2021, NBC announced a new spin-off of the crime series ‘Law & Order’, dubbed ‘For The Defense’. Despite getting the green light, the channel revealed this Thursday (15) that plans have changed and production will not take place (via The Wrap).
Details of the cancellation were not disclosed, although NBC said it still plans to develop further iterations of the franchise.
The spin-off would put “lawyers under the microscope, as well as the criminal justice system, with the promise of a contemporary moral tale every week.”
“Law & Order” franchise creator Dick Wolf had been linked as executive producer on the project, alongside Arthur Forney, Julie Weitz, Peter Jankowski and Carol Mendelsohn.
It should be remembered that the network recently released the spin-off series “Law & Order: Organized Crime”.
Remember the trailer:
Created by Dick Wolf, Ilene Chaiken and Matt Olmstead, the series is a spin-off of “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit”.
In the plot, Stabler recovers from a personal loss and returns to the NYPD to lead an elite task force that will tackle organized crime.

The cast also includes Danielle Moné, Tamara Taylor, Ainsley Seiger and Dylan McDermott.
