NBC is developing a live series from the man behind a string of hits including the Peacock Network’s “Law & Order” franchise.
Variety reports that the network ordered six episodes of “Law & Order: You the Jury” from Dick Wolf. The live courtroom drama has been in the works at the network since May, previously under a title with less brand recognition, simply “You the Jury.”
The reality-based project allows audiences to determine the verdict in actual civil cases, the report notes.
“’Law & Order: You the Jury’ marks Wolf’s fifth series on the Peacock’s upcoming slate, though no premiere date for the courtroom show has been set yet,” Variety notes. “In addition to ‘You the Jury,’ Wolf has ‘Law & Order: SVU,’ ‘Chicago Fire,’ ‘Chicago P.D.’ and the upcoming ‘Chicago Med’ at NBC.”
