Wolf Entertainment


There are other producers with more shows on television at the moment, but none of them have the record-setting longevity of Wolf’s stable of broadcast series. His CBS shows “FBI,” “FBI: Most Wanted” and “FBI: International” all received renewals in 2022, ensuring they will run through their sixth, fifth and third seasons, respectively. On NBC, he has “Chicago Fire” and its spinoffs “Chicago PD” and “Chicago Med,” currently in seasons 11, 10 and 8, as well as the franchise that started it all, “Law & Order.” That show’s incarnation, relaunched in the fall of 2021, is in its 22nd season, while “Law & Order: Organized Crime” is in its third and “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” the longest-running scripted live-action series in U.S. television history, is chugging its way through season 24.
