Speaking of the man who inspired this year's celebration of 'Law & Order':
Turner Network Television (TNT) will pay tribute to the late stage and screen star Jerry Orbach in a month-long airing of "Law & Order" episodes featuring the actor as Detective Lennie Briscoe.
"In honor of what would have been the actor’s 71st birthday on Oct. 20," reads the TNT release, the network celebrates "I Love Lennie" starting Oct. 2 and running throughout the month.
The event featuring the three-time Emmy Award nominee will include back-to-back episodes airing Mondays 8-11 PM (ET) and Tuesdays 8 PM-midnight. (Check your local listings.) Daytime episodes which will air Oct. 2-6 at 2 and 3 PM will focus on crucial moments in Lennie Briscoe’s life and career.
