UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. – December 14, 2011 – NBCUniversal Television Consumer Products has partnered with VIP Fan Auctions to offer props and wardrobe from the popular television franchise “Law & Order.” The official "Law & Order" Auctions commenced earlier this month and will run weekly, beginning on Tuesdays and ending on Sundays – with new items added every Tuesday. Fans can find the auctions at www.nbcuauctions.com.
“NBCUniversal pays tribute to this iconic franchise by offering key pieces of memorabilia to the fan base,” said VIP Managing Partner Mark Kaminky. “The auctions will offer items from ‘Law & Order,’ ‘Law & Order: Criminal Intent’ and ‘Law & Order: Los Angeles.’ Expect items from main cast members, as well as a few amazing surprises.”
Some of the upcoming auction items include a director’s chair back belonging to “Law & Order” guest star Julia Roberts; a suit, tie and shirt worn by Alfred Molina, who starred as Deputy District Attorney Ricardo Morales in “Law & Order: Los Angeles;” and a sport coat worn by Jerry Orbach, who starred as Detective Lennie Briscoe in “Law & Order.”
"Law & Order" is television’s longest-running crime drama. Filmed entirely on location in New York, the realistic program looked at crime and justice from a dual perspective. In the series' most recent format, in the first half-hour, Detective Cyrus Lupo (Jeremy Sisto) and his new partner, Detective Kevin Bernard (Anthony Anderson), investigate crimes and apprehend suspects under the supervision of their precinct lieutenant, Anita Van Buren (S. Epatha Merkerson). In the second half-hour, the focus shifts to the criminal courts as Chief Assistant District Attorney Michael Cutter (Linus Roache) and the Executive Assistant District Attorney Connie Rubirosa (Alana De La Garza) work within a complicated justice system to prosecute the accused under the guidance of the newly appointed District Attorney Jack McCoy (Sam Waterston).
“Law & Order: Criminal Intent” followed Major Case Squad Detectives Robert Goren (Vincent D'Onofrio) and Alex Eames (Kathryn Erbe) as they tackled the most challenging criminal cases in New York City. Under the supervision of Captain James Deakins (Jamey Sheridan) and with the assistance of Assistant District Attorney Ron Carver (Courtney B. Vance), Goren and Eames pursued the city's most devious offenders in a cat-and-mouse game filled with treachery and surprising twists.
“Law & Order: Los Angeles” followed Detectives Ricardo Morales (Molina) and Tomas "TJ" Jaruszalski (Corey Stoll) as they pursue cases as members of the Los Angeles Police Department's elite Robbery Homicide Division. The series also starred Lieutenant Arleen Gonzales, (Rachel Ticotin), Deputy District Attorney Jonah "Joe" Dekker (Terrence Howard) and Deputy District Attorney Connie Rubirosa (Alana De La Garza).
