Dick Wolf, who has gone from creating commercials for Crest toothpaste early in his career to creating one of the most enduring franchises in TV history — the original "Law & Order" and all of its spinoffs — has sold a new reality cop series.
"A&E has greenlit 'D.O.A.' (working title), an eight-episode non-fiction series [from Wolf] which will follow an elite team of detectives who will re-investigate controversial murder cases," writes Debra Birnbaum in a scoop for Variety.
Her story continues: "The team includes Chicago homicide police officer Michelle Wood; Miami detective Joe Schillaci, a 30-year veteran; and Kevin 'Spider' Gannon, a retired NYPD detective."
The executive producers for the series are Wolf and Tom Thayer.
