NBC is moving forward with a new edition of “Law & Order.”

Entitled “Law & Order: Hate Crimes,” the new series received a thirteen episode order from the network.

“Law & Order” mastermind Dick Wolf created the series with former “SVU” showrunner Warren Leight. The series is based on New York’s actual Hate Crimes Task Force.

“As ‘Law & Order: SVU’ enters its remarkable 20thseason, it is exciting to get back into business with Dick Wolf on a new ‘Law & Order’ incarnation that feels extremely timely,” said Lisa Katz of NBC Entertainment. “Considering that last year there was a double-digit rise in hate crimes in our 10 largest cities — the highest total in over a decade — it seemed like this topic is begging to be explored.”

A premiere date has not yet been announced for the new show.
