Remade as the Law & Order: UK episode "The Wrong Man
" (S05E01 - July 10th, 2011)
This episode was not the original pilot episode; rather, it was the series' sixth episode, "Everybody's Favorite Bagman", that was originally shot as the series pilot back in 1988.
We discover that Greevey and Cragen were partners before Cragen's promotion; Cragen is a recovering alcoholic; and Stone's father had a drinking problem.
Both Bruce McCarty and Daniel Benzali will later star together in the CBS drama, "The Agency".
