This is part of an interview with Warren Leight regarding the 14TH season of 'SVU' and just about Katie. I have to say I don't agree with his comment about CI fans not watching SVU because I like both shows. Katie's appearance in 'Acceptable Loss' is scheduled for October 17TH.
You're bringing Law & Order: Criminal Intent's Kathryn Erbe to your squad room this season. How did that happen?
Leight: I did Criminal Intent for seven years. One of the things that's strange is SVU fans watch Law & Order and Criminal Intent fans watch Law & Order, but Criminal Intent fans do not watch SVU. There's not as much crossover between those shows as you might guess. And now that there's only one show left, I'd like to bring those fans together. When we started to plot the fourth episode, we needed a Homeland Security agent. I didn't want to just keep throwing new people into this mix, and our casting director said "What about your old friend Katie?" We were all like, "That's it. We're done."
