Since NBC decided to cancel the 20-year old "Law & Order," TNT had been said to be considering picking up the program for a record-breaking 21st season. But now TNT says it’s not interested in moving the drama to its network, the Los Angeles Times’ Show Tracker blog reports.
"We are not in current talks, and we are not interested in a Season 21," according to a statement from TNT’s parent Turner Broadcasting. Still, even though Turner isn’t interested in the show, the company holds rerun rights to the drama and must approve any deal that affects the future of the program.
"Law & Order" is tied with "Gunsmoke" for the longest-running scripted primetime series ever on TV at 20 seasons. Dick Wolf, who created the show, wants the series to break the record.
