|A planned "Law & Order" mini-series involving terrorist attacks on New York City has been cancelled in the wake of last week's World Trade Centre tragedy. |
Producer Dick Wolf had planned to create a TV mini-series about a group of terrorists operating in New York -- a series that would cross over into all his "Law & Order" series.
The show was announced one day before terrorists crashed passenger jets into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Wolf was quoted as saying he wanted to do the series to raise awareness of the real threat of terrorism on American soil.
Now, though, the show's producers, Studios USA, have nixed the project.
The company said they "believe it is inappropriate to produce the 'Law & Order' mini-series, dealing with terrorism, in light of the horrifying events that have unfolded over the past week."
"Our thoughts and prayers are with the families, friends and colleagues of everyone touched by this tragedy."
