Nickelodeon Making 'Law & Order' with Kids
Nickelodeon is reportedly developing a new series to, early on, get kids used to their dismal futures plopping down on the couch and sleepily watching a crime procedural. According to Deadline, Scott Marshall is teaming with his holiday-based-romance-loving dad Garry to write and direct for Nick what would essentially be a multi-camera sitcom take on Law & Order, but with children 10 to 12 years old. The show is said to center around a boy cop, his district attorney brother, a girl judge "both have a crush on," a corrupt mayor, and a well-connected malt shoppe owner. In other words, it's fluff compared to the tough legal realities of Nickelodeon's Kids' Court.
