"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" 
Season Premiere Thursday, September 27 from 9 to 11 PM ET/PT on NBC
 
          Created by Emmy Award-winning producer Dick Wolf, “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” now in its 20th season, is the longest-running primetime drama currently on television. This hard-hitting and emotional series from NBC’s “Law & Order” brand chronicles the lives of the Special Victims Unit of the New York City Police Department, an elite squad of detectives who investigate crimes of sexual assault, child abuse and domestic violence.  


          "MAN UP" SEASON PREMIERE - Teenager Sam Conway shows evidence of rape but refuses to name his attacker. Meanwhile, Benson and Rollins confess to some major life changes. "MAN DOWN" In the conclusion to the season premiere, ADA Stone blames himself for the shocking verdict in Sam's case, and before Benson can offer help, Sam makes a tragic decision.
 

          As acting commander of the SVU, Lt. Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay) is a seasoned veteran of the unit who has seen it all. She leads with empathy and professionalism, all the while dealing with her difficult past as a product of rape and her future as mother to a young child, both of which influence the way she relates to the victims and perpetrators of each case.  

          As Benson’s second-in-command, Sgt. Odafin “Fin” Tutuola (Ice T) adds a unique sense of humor and undercover investigative experience, making him a formidable match for any partner. Det. Amanda Rollins (Kelli Giddish) has earned her place as an integral part of the team while facing head-on the emotional toll it takes to work SVU, and Det. Dominick “Sonny” Carisi (Peter Scanavino) brings a fresh outlook and distinctive style of investigation to the squad. Assistant District Attorney Peter Stone (Philip Winchester) joins the SVU from Chicago’s homicide division with a passion to learn from the best and honor his father’s legacy.
