BBC America, after airing promos and after a fury of speculative tweeting, have OFFICIALLY announced Law & Order: UK will premiere on October 3rd at 10:30pm! Subsequent episodes will air on Fridays at 9:00pm. And they will air all 26 episodes filmed to date! :)
This October, BBC AMERICA brings 26 episodes of the hit show Law & Order: UK home to the U.S. Based on Emmy award-winning producer Dick Wolf’s long-running crime series, 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. Law & Order: UK premieres Sunday, October 3, 10:30p.m. ET/PT with subsequent episodes premiering on Fridays, 9:00p.m. ET/PT.
Pardon my language, but it's about damn time! More information to follow as I get it. :)
