Toronto, ON – Producers of the exciting Law and Order series centering around crimes related to Toronto finally revealed what crime the pilot episode will look at.
“We’re very excited to have a first episode where the police actually do nothing,” explained Dick Wolf, that producer everyone knows the name of. “Instead of having a diverse set of detectives, it’s just going to be like 7 of the same white dude. And they sort of dismiss any claims the people they’re talking to make.”
Wolf explained episodes would contain explosive scenes of the detectives bringing their evidence to the police commissioner, who says something like, “Looks like no one has come to us with anything,” and then the detectives all help themselves to drugs they’ve confiscated from other arrests.
“But that’s just part 1 of this arc,” said Wolf, teasing some really fun twists for the series. “See we then have the police actually bring in the serial killer and interview him multiple times. Now you’d think from the other Law and Order series they got they get a weird feeling about the guy right? NOPE. Instead of having the detectives thinking something is up with him, they all have misconceptions about the LGBTQ community and let him go…twice! Now that’s good television.”
Wolf promised many more episodes of crimes being unsolved before the serial killer is arrested, as Toronto is a city whose story is ‘if you’re part of a marginalized community, the police aren’t interested.’
Wolf says while this plot is happening, some of the funner scenes will be having the police commissioner publicly say the gay community is making stuff up, eroding trust in them, and making the investigation go on for way longer than it needs to be. After which, they all get a massive raise.
“But we don’t want the whole series to just be jokes,” explained Wolf. “We do have a more serious and somber episode where the police commissioner gets an 86 percent no confidence vote from his co-workers, and has to resign. But do not worry, he gets to redeem himself by running for mayor of the city in season 2!”
Wolf also revealed the intro they are planning to use for the Toronto version of the show, which states, “In Toronto, the people are divided into separate and not equally important groups, the police and the stupid other people.”
