‘LAW & ORDER’ CREW ON THE CRIME SCENE

The locations crew for NBC’s “Law & Order” was recently scouting for a believable location for a scene in which a body washes up in the East River. They found an appropriately gloomy spot near the water, and parked their van by the side of the road.

“When they climbed out of the location van, there were cops gathered around, waving them down, assuming they were coroners,” said exec producer Dick Wolf. Displaying remarkable gifts for verisimilitude, the crew had stumbled on the body of a woman who’d floated ashore.

The experience was too eerie for the producers to pass up. “Even though they were worried the area wasn’t picturesque enough, in the sense of cinema verite, we’ll probably end up back there this week to shoot the scene,” said Wolf. “If you want a reason we’re in New York, that’s number 103: Anything that can happen does happen in Manhattan.”
