NBC Universo calls for Law & Order

Cable channel NBC Universo will debut American procedural Law & Order for Spanish-speaking US audiences for the first time.

Law & Order and sister series Law & Order: Los Angeles after a deal with the domestic distribution arm of parent NBCUniversal.

Dick Wolf-created Law & Order, which ran for 20 season between 1990 and 2010, debuts with back-to-back episodes on Monday, July 6 at 5pm. It will air daily Monday through Thursday thereafter, while Law & Order: Los Angeles will air weekly on Tuesdays at 9pm, starting July 7.

NBC Universo subs will also be able to access episodes online via video-on-demand services, and the NBC Universo app.

Law & Order is an iconic series that has already captivated audiences around the world with its ‘ripped from the headlines’ brand of drama,” said Bilai Joa Silar, senior VP, programming and production for NBC Universo.

“For NBC Universo, it is a privilege to be able to reintroduce this intelligent and riveting series to a whole new Spanish-dominant US audience.”

NBC Universo rebranded from mun2 in November last year.
