Law & Order Toronto: Criminal Intent in the Works


Citytv has greenlit its own adaptation of the Law & Order franchise with the crime drama Law & Order Toronto: Criminal Intent, set to air in spring 2024.

Based on the classic series created by Dick Wolf for Universal Television, Law & Order Toronto: Criminal Intent will showcase original Canadian stories written and produced by and starring Canadians. It will follow an elite squad of detectives investigating high-profile crime and corruption in metro Toronto.

Produced by Lark Productions and Cameron Pictures, in association with Citytv, Law & Order Toronto: Criminal Intent has been ordered for ten one-hour episodes, with production taking place this fall in Toronto.

“The timeless appeal of the cases explored in the globally successful Law & Order franchise continue to draw in Citytv audiences week after week,” said Hayden Mindell, senior VP of television at Rogers Sports & Media. “We’re thrilled to be in partnership with Lark Productions and Cameron Pictures to bring Canadian stories to this iconic format.”

“Our team is excited for the unique opportunity to produce a distinctly Canadian version of Criminal Intent in partnership with Cameron Pictures,” said Erin Haskett, president and executive producer at Lark Productions. “We have been collaborating with Rogers Sports & Media since early last year and are thrilled to share the original vision of the adaptation with audiences.”

“We are thrilled to be working with Lark Productions and Citytv to bring this series to life,” said Amy Cameron, co-founder and executive producer at Cameron Pictures. “We cannot wait to showcase our amazing city in the Law & Order franchise.”
