Dick Wolf


Two-time Emmy winner Dick Wolf, one of television's most respected drama series creator/producers, is the architect of one of the most successful brands in the history of television – "Law & Order." Wolf serves as creator and executive producer of the "Law & Order" drama series from Wolf Films and Universal Media Studios – "Law & Order," "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" and the new "Law & Order: LA."

Wolf's company also produced "Twin Towers," the 2003 Academy Award-winning short documentary about two brothers, one a policeman and the other a fireman, who lost their lives in the line of duty on September 11. Wolf Films also produces "When You're Strange," an Emmy-nominated documentary about The Doors which has also had a successful international theatrical run.

In 2007, Wolf executive produced the critically-acclaimed HBO original movie "Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee," which won six Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Made for Television Movie. The film tells the tragic and powerful story of the subjugation and cultural extermination of the Native American, and garnered a record 17 Emmy nominations, the most of the 2006-2007 television season. The film also received the prestigious Broadcast Film Critics Association's Critics' Choice Award for Best Picture Made for Television.

Wolf's "Law & Order" series rewrote the annals of television history. "Law & Order," which ran a remarkable 20 seasons on NBC, is tied with "Gunsmoke" as the longest-running drama series on television. It earned eleven consecutive Outstanding Drama Series Emmy nominations – the record for most consecutive series Emmy nominations in the history of television (tied with "Cheers" and "M*A*S*H") – and won the coveted Emmy in that category in 1997. "Law & Order's" other accolades include the highly-coveted Peabody Award; multiple Emmys; the Crystal Apple Award from the New York City's Mayor's Office of Film, Theater and Broadcasting; the Writer's Guild Award for Television; and numerous other high ranking tributes.

"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," entering its 12th year on NBC, has been one of the network's top performers, and continually wins its Wednesday night time period, monopolizing audiences by a wide margin in ratings, share and demographics. Star Mariska Hargitay, who plays Detective Olivia Benson, has received seven Emmy nominations for Lead Actress in a Drama Series, winning in 2006, and Christopher Meloni, who plays Detective Eliott Stabler earned his first Emmy nomination in the Lead Actor in a Drama Series category. In addition, Ann-Margret, Leslie Caron and Amanda Plummer have earned Oustanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series Emmys for their work on the show.

"Law & Order: Criminal Intent," in its ninth season, stars Jeff Goldblum, Saffron Burrows and Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio. "Criminal Intent" airs on USA Network with repurposed runs on NBC.

Wolf has been a creative force in television for more than 25 years, with an illustrious career as a top advertising executive and continuing as one of television's most prolific producer/writers with such series as "Conviction," "L.A. Dragnet," "Hill Street Blues," "Miami Vice," "New York Undercover," "Arrest & Trial," "South Beach," "Feds" and "Players." Among his feature film credits is the screenplay for the hit Paramount release "School Ties," writer and executive producer of "Masquerade" and writer and producer of "No Man's Land."

His personal honors include such awards as the prestigious Award of Excellence from the Banff Television Festival; the 2002 Creative Achievement Award from NATPE and the 2007 Brandon Tartikoff Award; the Producer's Guild of America's Norman Lear Showmanship Award; the Anti-Defamation League's Distinguished Entertainment Industry Award; the DGA Honors; the International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Lifetime Achievement Award; the Governor's Award by the New York Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences; the 1997 Achievement Award from the Caucus for Producers, Writers, and Directors; the 1998 Television Showman of the Year Award from the Publicist's Guild of America; and the 2002 Tribute from the Museum of Television and Radio. On March 29, 2007, Wolf received a star on Hollywood's world-famous Walk of Fame.

Wolf is also an Honorary Consul of Monaco and is actively involved in the principality's prestigious annual television festival, and is its primary liaison with the entertainment community.

Dick Wolf Quotes
Every show is born under a death sentence. They just don’t tell you the date of execution.

[Law & Order] has offended the sensitivities of a variety of special interest groups, including, but not limited to Jews, Catholics, Protestants, African-Americans, Asian-Americans, Aryans, gays and lesbians, Italians, Russians, Greeks, conservatives, liberals, pro-life and pro-choice advocates, and the list goes on ad nauseum.
