Dick Wolf adds a new half-hour drama to his roster.
IMDb TV, Amazon’s free premium streaming service, has ordered On Call, a new series from the man behind the Law & Order and One Chicago franchises on NBC and the FBI on CBS.
This new series from Wolf, Universal Television (a division of Universal Studio Group), and Wolf Entertainment follows two police officers (one newbie, one veteran) on patrol in Long Beach, California. Each episode follows them as they respond to a new radio call and arrive on site to resolve an incident.
The news comes the same day NBC announced a new series in the Law & Order franchise For the Defense. It offers a glimpse into a criminal defense firm and puts the lawyers under the microscope. It joins the SVU and the new spin-off Organized Crime in the franchise, which is also linked to Chicago Fire, PD and Med via crossover on NBC. Wolf also has FBI and FBI: Most Wanted as well as the upcoming FBI: International at CBS.
IMDb TV has also announced the premiere date for the first eight episodes of Leverage: Redemption and five drama and comedy projects in development: Blessed and Highly Favored, Greek Candy, Primo, The Fed and The Pradeeps of Pittsburgh, PA .
