Sen. Schumer wants "Law & Order" Back in NYC
Attorney General Eric Holder may want “The Wire” back on television, but Sen. Chuck Schumer wants to bring "Law & Order" back to New York. “LA is a great city, but Law & Order is much better in NYC,” he tweeted on Thursday. Politico's writing, “The hit series used to be filmed in the Empire State, but its East Coast location was tossed aside for the sunny skies of Los Angeles last year. The New York Daily News reported that the senator wrote to NBC programming bigwig Bob Greenblatt urging him to move the show back East. He pointed out that if “Law & Order” comes home, it would mean about "4,000 jobs and about $79 million for the local economy."
