LAW & ORDER | UK follows the familiar two part format: beginning each episode with a crime, followed by the legal and court proceedings to convict the criminal. All scripts have been taken from the U.S. version to retain the grittiness of the original series, but adapted to fit with the British legal system, providing a uniquely British twist.
Set in and around London, LAW & ORDER | UK stars Jamie Bamber (Outcasts, Battlestar Galactica) as Detective Superintendent Matt Devlin, Bradley Walsh (Coronation Street, The Old Curiosity Shop) as Detective Superintendent Ronnie Brooks, Harriet Walter (The Young Victoria, Sense and Sensibility) as Detective Inspector Natalie Chandler, Ben Daniels (The Passion, The State Within) as Senior Crown Prosecutor James Steel, Freema Agyeman (Doctor Who, Little Dorritt) as Junior Crown Prosecutor Alesha Phillips, and Bill Paterson (Wives and Daughters, Canterbury Tales) as Director of CPS London George Castle.
LAW & ORDER | UK is produced by Richard Stokes (Torchwood, The Inspector Lynley Mysteries), with executive producers Jane Featherstone (Spooks, Ashes To Ashes), Andrew Woodhead (Spooks) and Stephen Garrett (Burn Up) for Kudos and Dick Wolf for Wolf Films. Chris Chibnall (Torchwood, Life on Mars) is lead writer and executive producer for series one.
