TCA: Dick Wolf does double panel duty

Dick Wolf was busy today. He started the day with the “Law & Order” panel at TCA on Tuesday, breaking Dickwolftca_2 the news that Linus Roache is joining the mothership-show’s cast in the upcoming season as executive assistant D.A., or the successor to Jack McCoy now that Sam Waterston’s character has advanced to the big D.A. gig.

Wolf then hopped from TCA Central at the Beverly Hilton a few blocks down Wilshire Boulevard to the Regent Beverly Wilshire to moderate the “State of the Industry” sesh for the Hollywood Radio & TV Society. The HRTS panel was lively, and Wolf had plenty to say about the state of the biz he’s in. Not surprisingly, much of the conversation revolved around the words “online video” and “new platforms.”

As Variety’s Michael Schneider reports, Wolf recounted for the HRTS aud the “horrifying moment” he discovered that not only does his 14-year-old son not watch network TV, but none of his son’s classmates do either. “At the end of the day, are we eating our young?” Wolf asked.
