|"Law & Order Way" might make a good title for yet another spinoff in Dick Wolf's hit primetime franchise -- or a good name for a street.|
On Tuesday, the city of New York named a tiny access road leading to the "Law & Order" studios at Pier 62 just that.
Katherine Oliver, commissioner of the Mayor's Office of Film, Theater & Broadcasting, said "Law & Order" -- which begins its 15th season next week -- has pumped more than $700 million into Gotham's economy.
Moreover, the show has sparked three spinoffs, including the soon-to-bow "Law & Order: Trial by Jury."
Wolf, who was presented with the official street sign, was accompanied to the event by NBC Universal Television Group prexy Jeff Zucker and "Law & Order" cast members including new recruit Dennis Farina.
Beginning this season, all "Law & Order" shows will be officially part of the city's "Made in NY" campaign and will use the "Made in NY" logo in their credits.
