‘Law & Order’ Returns to NBC — In Spanish on NBC Universo

Law & Order” is the latest marquee property to migrate to the NBC Universo Spanish-language cabler.

The channel, formerly known as Mun2, will run original “Law & Order” episodes dubbed in Spanish in the Monday-Thursday 5 p.m. slot starting July 6. Episodes of the short-lived “Law & Order: Los Angeles” spinoff will air weekly on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. starting July 7.

The “Law & Order” move is the latest sign of NBCUniversal’s increased investment in the NBC Universo cabler. Earlier this week, NBC Universo announced a deal to pick up USA Network’s legal drama “Suits,” which will bow in Spanish-language version on July 7, airing in tandem with “Law & Order: Los Angeles” on Tuesdays 10 p.m.

NBC Universo is banking on the “Law & Order” showcase as a draw for viewers who might not have watched the show in the past because it was not available in a dubbed Spanish version.

The episodes to air on NBC Universo will be drawn from the show’s first five seasons. “Law & Order” racked up some 456 episodes over its 20-season run on NBC from 1990-2010. Spanish-lingo dubbing has been completed on all episodes from the first four seasons and 12 from season five.

“Law & Order: Los Angeles” ran on NBC in the 2010-11 season. All 22 episodes have been dubbed.

An NBC Universo rep said more such acquisitions of English-language NBCUniversal properties are coming to the cabler, as well as acquisitions from Mexican and Latin American producers. The volume of original programming is also growing significantly as NBCUniversal sees the Spanish-language media market as a key growth sector for its U.S. television operations.
