LAW & ORDER SUV – OREL’S DAY OFF
Starting in April, we will be hosting special screenings of the little-known NBC show Law & Order: Sport Utility Vehicle. As a part of MLB’s efforts to “reach out to them youths” in the late nineties, they partnered with famed producer Dick Wolf to produce a show that had critics across the board asking “what…what is the premise of the show again?”
The show paired steely-jawed, hard-biting Mariska Hargitay with famed baseball hurler Orel “Bulldog” Hershiser as two jaded detectives who drove to very remote crime scenes extremely practical vehicles. Sadly, the scheduling conflicted with Orel’s strict baseball and snacks schedule, so the pilot was scrapped and his character was replaced by some jabroni named Christopher Meloni and moved to New York City. Despite airing for going on twenty-two seasons, it really never had the spice of the original pilot.
Presented as part of our What Orel Does On His Days Off Series.
