Law & Order Is Getting a Reality Spin-Off

What could possibly go wrong?

Shelli Weinstein

Move over, Olivia Benson -- the people will decide right and wrong in NBC's next reality series - a reality spin-off of Law & Order.

You read that correctly, NBC has given the go-ahead to Law & Order: You The Jury, a docu-drama reality series that will put legal decisions in the hands of the viewers, Deadline reports. The audience will serve as the jury on the new series, not only deciding the verdict of the case being examined, but will be able to vote throughout the trial on the character of witnesses and how persuasive the evidence is.

Law & Order: You The Jury will also be live, as NBC continues its attempt to grow the popularity of DVR-proof entertainment.

The project marks producer Dick Wolf's fifth concurrent series on NBC, after Law & Order: SVU, Chicago Fire, Chicago P.D. and Chicago Med.
