Justice will be served on the 16th February 2009 when Law & Order Season 6 is released onto DVD. Set in New York City, the series follows the professional lives of several police officers and prosecutors who represent the public interest in the criminal justice system. The longest running crime series, second longest-running drama series in the history of American broadcast television and winner of the 1997 Emmy(r) Award for Outstanding Drama Series; Law & Order is the most successful brand in the history of primetime television and has featured notable guest stars over the years including Julia Roberts, Samuel L. Jackson, Chevy Chase, Tom Berenger, Claire Danes and Philip Seymour Hoffman.

In Manhattan's 27th Precinct the crime rate is high, murder and corruption pollute the city and it's the job of Vietnam veteran Senior Detective Lennie Briscoe (Jerry Orbach - Tony Award(r) winner) and conservative and devoutly Catholic Junior Detective Rey Curtis (Benjamin Bratt - Miss Congeniality) to investigate serious crimes, collect evidence, interview witnesses and report to Police Commanding Officer Anita Van Buren (S. Epatha Merkerson - Golden Globe(r) and Emmy Award(r) winner and star of Terminator 2: Judgment Day and The Cosby Show). Their evidence often leads to the arrest of one or more suspects at which point the case is handed over to the prosecutors of the Manhattan District Attorney's office, the brilliant legal mind Executive Assistant District Attorney Jack McCoy (Sam Waterston - Golden Globe(r) and Emmy Award(r) winner), idealistic and outspoken Assistant District Attorney Claire Kincaid (Jill Hennessy) and the stern and unforgiving District Attorney Adam Schiff (Steven Hill). They discuss deals, prepare the witnesses and evidence, and conduct the prosecution trial.

Highlights from this season include episodes 'Deceit' - When a young attorney is murdered shortly after he decides to file a sexual harassment claim against his employer, Briscoe and Curtis quickly discover that the alleged harasser and his wife each have an excellent motive for murder, 'Atonement' - The investigation into the murder of a model with a passion for cocaine and partying focuses on the men in her life -- a nightclub owner, a basketball player, a photographer and a limousine driver, 'Pro Se' The investigation into multiple homicides at a clothing store leads to the arrest of a schizophrenic who presents McCoy with a formidable opponent when he decides to represent himself, and Season finale 'Aftershock' - After Briscoe, Curtis, McCoy, and Kincaid witness the execution of a criminal they brought to justice, their unique reactions to the event culminate in personal tragedies for each of them.
