New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg will appear as himself on the season premiere of 'Law & Order' (NBC, 9/22/04, 10 pm EST). His scene is at a press conference about the murder of an American soldier.
Like many episodes of the series, this appears to be "ripped from the headlines": the soldier had been a prison guard in Iraq.
This marks Mayor Mike's second appearance on 'Law & Order'. He has yet to grace the set of ABC's 'NYPD Blue', and there's no word as to whether he might show up someday on the newest installment of the CBS franchise, 'CSI: NY'.
But if Bloomberg is showing favoritism, he probably has good reason. Unlike the other two shows, all of the filming for the three 'Law & Order' series takes place in New York City.
