Wolf

Year after year, Wolf manages to expand his dominating presence in the now oft-overlooked world of broadcast television. He entered the Fall 2021 season with eight hour-long dramas in the primetime lineup, including the longest-running live-action scripted series in the history of U.S. television, “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” currently in its 23rd season. But his most impressive accomplishment might be the resurrection of the original “Law & Order,” which will return for a 21st season on NBC eleven and a half years after it was abruptly cancelled in 2010. In the meantime, Wolf is also resurrecting ’90s cop drama “New York Undercover” for Peacock after the original ran for four seasons on FOX, and is still the producing force behind “Chicago Fire,” “Chicago P.D.” and “Chicago Med” on NBC.
