We don't talk enough about how much Law and Order: SVU fucking hates NYU and roasts the school at every turn as the demonically rapetastic Hudson University. This may be the only writers room in television staffed entirely by Fordham and Pace grads and tbh I'm here for it.
Last night I watched one episode where Benson tells Peter Gallagher that she thinks he's being nice to Hudson U because they're "the biggest landlord in the city" which is direct and well deserved NYU shade. In the next episode she told her baby "you are NEVER going to Hudson."
Also how does Hudson University still exist. Like at some point do any parents say, "Maybe we won't pay for our kids to go get raped at Hudson?" Also NYPD is never not on campus investigating a rape or a murder or a rapemurder. How do you spin that at high school admissions fairs
NOT ONLY do various male student athletes at Hudson University rape or allegedly rape (but then it's lies!) various female student non-athletes but THE MALE ATHLETES CONSTANTLY RAPE EACH OTHER and also the coaches are always overseeing this, HAS THE NCAA BEEN INFORMED?
I'm not even clear on what part of town Hudson University is in. I think they pretend it's up near Columbia to try and disguise the fact that it is supposed to be NYU but with better sports and academics. Also everything bad that ever happens at a university happens at Hudson.
I think my favorite thing that's ever happened at Hudson University is when the very stupid mom wanted her very stupid son to get into the school so she boned a man claiming to be a professor APPARENTLY WITHOUT LOOKING HIM UP ON THE WEBSITE then her son jumped out a window.
DID YOU GUYS KNOW THAT THIS YEAR THE LAW AND ORDER UNIVERSE IS ALLEGEDLY SET TO EXPAND TO LAW AND ORDER: HATE CRIMES? ANYWAY IT'LL JUST MOSTLY BE ABOUT TRUMP VOTERS DOING WHAT THEY LOVE, CAN'T WAIT!
I cannot waaaaaaait til "Law and Order: Hate Crimes" does a Very Special Episode where a bunch of liberals beat up a conservative kid because "both sides, maaaaan" that's gonna be so stupid and I will hate watch that ep of hate crimes
Also sometimes on SVU Hudson University is not just NYU but also at the same time is UVA or Penn State, basically just real rapey and not care-y. And Mariska is NEVER SURPRISED BY IT BECAUSE SHE HAS IT IN FOR HUDSON U.
Can the preceding thread be my staffing sample for Law and Order, really any Law and Order franchise living or dead, or is that against guild rules y/n
I would like to have my own franchise in the Law and Order Universe, and it would be called "Law and Order: You Ain't Shit." Every episode would be about how a character I play called Det. Carpathia De La Guerra kills somebody who ain't shit. Also I write every episode and co-EP.
On "Law and Order: You Ain't Shit", my character Det. Carpathia De La Guerra constantly kills people, but everybody knows they ain't shit so it is fine. She wears a lot of pantsuits that fit very well, and she fucks.
There will be crossover episodes between my series "Law and Order: You Ain't Shit" and all the other L&O shows except my character Det. Carpathia De La Guerra is a loose cannon and she has SEVERAL physical fights with other characters EXCEPT Ice T whom she endlessly respects.
I can tell you right now that when Belzer guests on "Law and Order: You Ain't Shit" he and my character, Det. Carpathia De La Guerra, who may actually be played by Rita Moreno but is for sure my emotional twin and greatest creation, there will be TENSION.
"Law and Order: You Ain't Shit" will exclusively employ veteran New York theatre actors, and also me. Other members of the L&O universe will be cast on my series in a case by case basis. Regardless, everyone needs to prepare one song and dance number (comedic) for the audish.
"Law and Order: You Ain't Shit" will have craft services exclusively provided by Gray's Papaya and Veselka. There will be an on-set massage therapist and it will be the ghost of Spalding Gray. These are my requirements as co-EP and I feel they are reasonable.
Okay I am revising to say that I am going to be EP of "Law and Order: You Ain't Shit" and thank you @GennHutchison for reminding me to ask for what I want in this business. I WILL share co-creator credit with Dick Wolff, it just feels right. Some episodes will just feature me.
We will shoot some episodes of "Law and Order: You Ain't Shit" at Chelsea Piers but other times we'll just do it live from a soundstage that I will make my friends build at PS 122 now called "Performance Space New York."
Here is who else is allowed to write episodes of my upcoming series "Law and Order: You Ain't Shit" starring me as Det. Carpathia De La Guerra:

1.) Richard Curtis
2.) Hargitay
3.) Ice T
4.) Wallace Shawn

I write at least 46 episodes per season. It's a 50-episode season.
Also the only people allowed to intern or PA on "Law and Order: You Ain't Shit" are CUNY or community college students or graduates.
MAJOR PLOT TWIST: What if Hudson University is THE PRATT INSTITUTE OF ART?!?! OHHHH SHIT!
Guys this is very important information from @warrenleightTV which really brings my speculative thread to a conclusion that is satisfying and informative NOT UNLIKE EVERY EPISODE OF EVERY LAW AND ORDER EPISODE THANK YOU.
P.S. I shall add that when I inevitably have charge of my own Law and Order spinoff the only good school in it will be Hunter College and the entire CUNY system really, where only nice things will happen to good kids and staff.
I JUST DID A REALLY GOOD CAMERA TEST FOR MY ROLE AS DET. CARPATHIA DE LA GUERRA ON MY FUTURE LAW AND ORDER SPINOFF ("Law and Order: You Ain't Shit.") This feisty Bronx Science grad hates everybody but @FINALLEVEL and is a Romanian Puerto Rican Irish Mexican cop with an attitude.
