The Producers Guild of America has tapped Dick Wolf to receive its Norman Lear Achievement Award in Television.
Nod will be presented at the 19th annual PGA Awards Feb. 2 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
Wolf is the creator and exec producer of the three “Law & Order” drama series — “Law & Order,” “Special Victims Unit” and “Criminal Intent.”
The original “Law & Order” is entering its 18th season with nearly 400 episodes to date, making it the longest-running current drama series on television. It’s tied with “Cheers” and “MASH” for the record for most consecutive series Emmy nominations and is poised to overtake “Gunsmoke” as the longest-running drama series in the history of television.
Wolf won an Emmy this year as exec producer of HBO’s “Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee,” which earned a record 17 Emmy nominations and received six Emmy Awards.
