‘L&O: Organized Crime’ moves from NBC to Peacock

Law & Order: Organized Crime is set to move from NBC to streamer sibling Peacock for a shorter 10-episode fifth season.

Produced by Wolf Entertainment and Universal Television, the show spins Christopher Meloni’s Detective Elliot Stabler out of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit into a more serialized format for the long-running crime drama franchise.

Season four ran for 13 episodes, while seasons two and three each ran for 22 episodes, with only season one and its eight-episode run coming in shorter than the S5 renewal.

Reports suggest that the show’s darker tone may have something to do with the lower performance than other Law & Order stablemates on NBC.

TF1 orders ‘Rien ne t’efface‘ adaptation

TF1 in France has ordered an adaptation of the Michel Bussi novel Rien ne t’efface from Banijay-owned label Shine Fiction.

The 6 x 52-minute series is written by Anne Rambach, Marine Rambach, Patrick Renault, and Michel Bussi and directed by Jerome Cornuau. Set against the backdrop of Auvergne, it follows the story of Maddi, a mother grappling with the loss of her son, Esteban, in a tragic accident a decade ago.

The plot thickens when she encounters Tom, a boy who not only bears an uncanny resemblance to Esteban, but also has visions and memories of him. Stirring a series of events that intertwine their fates with a mysterious string of murders, Maddi can’t help but wonder if these events are linked to his death. Who is Tom and what is his connection to her son?
