Welcome Law & Order: SVU Viewers
On January 25, 2012 NBC re-aired ‘Personal Fouls,’ an insightful and moving episode of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. It’s the story of men who were sexually abused by a powerful basketball coach dangling the keys to the NBA – and the dedicated police who help bring him to justice.
The show was first aired in September of 2011, just five weeks before the Penn State and Syracuse stories hit the headlines, and helped prepare its 8 million viewers for the realities of those tragedies.
1in6 is honored to have consulted on the script, as well as a 2-minute public service announcement (PSA) linked to the show.
We extend our heartfelt thanks to our partners at NBC and the Joyful Heart Foundation, to the show’s actors, especially Mariska Hargitay, Ice T and Danny Pino, to the director, Jim McKay, to Bryan Goluboff, who wrote the inspired script, to creator/executive producer Dick Wolf, and to all of the producers and staff of Law & Order: SVU.
