2020 Daytime Emmys Cancelled

  2020 Daytime Emmys Cancelled The Daytime Emmy Awards will shine a lot less brighter this year, now that the 47th edition of the annual awards show has been cancelled. In light of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, “There are just too many unknowns right now, not the least of which is whether we would actually be permitted to stage an event in June involving more than one thousand live participants,” National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences chairman Terry O’Reilly said on Thursday in a message to NATAS members. “With deadlines to make significant financial commitments upon us, it seems irresponsible to move forward as we have in the past.

EXCLUSIVE: A beloved TV character is coming back. NBC has given a 13-episode series order to a new Dick Wolf crime drama series starring Christopher Meloni reprising his Law & Order: SVU role as Elliot Stabler. The drama, which marks the actor’s return to Wolf World, revolves around the NYPD organized crime unit led by Stabler (Meloni). It is the first show to come out of the massive new five-year, nine-figure, multi-platform deal Wolf signed with Universal Television last month, which includes multiple series commitments.

The new series is executive produced by Wolf, Arthur W. Forney and Peter Jankowski for Wolf Entertainment and Universal TV, a division of NBCUniversal Content Studios. I hear former Chicago P.D showrunner Matt Olmstead is being eyed as writer-showrunner.

Mariska Hargitay to SVU Spinoff Star Christopher Meloni: 'Welcome Home'

  Mariska Hargitay to SVU Spinoff Star Christopher Meloni: 'Welcome Home' This week marked Christopher Meloni‘s birthday, but the real gift went to Law & Order: SVU fans everywhere, courtesy of Meloni’s former co-star Mariska Hargitay. “Congratulations and welcome home Elliot Stabler,” Hargitay posted on Instagram on Thursday, following it with the hashtags #ItsBeenAWhile and #MissedYou. Hargitay, of course, was referencing news from earlier in the week: Meloni will return to the SVU character he played for 12 seasons, via a new Dick Wolf procedural with Stabler at its center.Stabler will be the boss in a SVU spinoff set in the New York City Police Department’s organized crime division.

Like Law & Order: SVU, headlined by Mariska Hargitay as Olivia Benson, the new drama is set in New York, allowing for potential seamless crossovers with SVU, also set at an NYPD unit, and for Benson-Stabler reunions.

With their undeniable on-screen chemistry and great rapport on and off the set, Hargitay and Meloni were one of television’s most popular duos for over a decade.

Meloni was the male lead opposite Hargitay for SVU‘s first 12 seasons, with their characters partners and best friends. Stabler is an Irish American who, during the time he was featured on SVU, was married (his wife Kathy was played by Isabel Gillies) with five children. The role earned Meloni a lead actor in a drama series Emmy nomination in 2006.

Following Meloni’s exit after Season 12, his character was written off, with Stabler abruptly retiring from the police force.

Since departing SVU in 2011, Meloni headlined the Syfy series Happy! and Fox comedy series Surviving Jack, starred on the praised WGA America series Underground, and did memorable arcs on True Blood and The Handmaid’s Tale.

During his almost nine years away from SVU, Meloni remained close with Hargitay and the Wolf family. In January, the former co-stars appeared together, alongside Wolf, in The Paley Center Salutes Law & Order: SVU TV special on NBC. It was around that time I first heard chatter of a potential new Wolf series with Meloni.

Meloni is repped by Gersh and Industry Entertainment.
