NBC announced its 2009 / 2010 television schedule this morning. As with most of the other networks, there were few surprises as much of their schedule was already known.
There are no new mystery, suspense, or crime series for the network. Returning series on NBC include:
Law & Order: Renewed for a 20th season, this series looks at crime and justice from a dual perspective. In the first half-hour, detectives investigate crimes and apprehend suspects, while in the second half-hour, the focus shifts to the criminal courts as district attorneys work within a complicated justice system to prosecute the accused. Law & Order is scheduled to air Fridays at 8 PM (ET/PT). Seasons 1 through 6 and 14 of Law & Order are available on DVD.
Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: This hard-hitting and emotional series from the "Law & Order" brand chronicles the life and crimes of the Special Victims Unit of the New York Police Department, the elite squad of detectives who investigate sexually based crimes. The 11th season of the series is scheduled to air Wednesdays at 9 PM (ET/PT). Seasons 1 through 9 of Law & Order: SVU are available on DVD.
