Life Story & Timeline

2016

In May 2016, Leight ended his reign at SVU to develop new television ideas for Sony. In April 2019, Leight announced he was returning to SVU as executive producer/showrunner.

2014

Greenblatt and Leight, along with other SVU cast and crew members, began calling the “revamped” series, “SVU 2.0”. Mariska Hargitay took over the series as lead, due to Chris Meloni’s abrupt departure. In an interview with TV Guide Leight noted “I’m aware of how successful and well-liked this show is. I’m just trying to figure out how you rejuvenate it after 12 years.” Leight joined SVU over choosing to launch a new show. Regarding Meloni’s character’s departure, he noted “the character most affected by his departure is Olivia. I think in the old days of Law & Order, you’d rip a limb off, attach a new limb, and go back and pitch. Rub some dirt in the wound and go out there. We’re trying to do that a little. To my mind and to Mariska’s mind, [Stabler’s exit] will be playing out over several episodes — sometimes in subtle ways, sometimes in overt ways.”

When Leight was asked how he felt running what is currently the last remaining Law & Order series, he responded, “It’s a storied franchise, and I don’t want to go down with the last ship. I’d rather this be the turning point or a regeneration of the franchise. It was made clear to me that — and this was before Chris had left — if the show kept going the way it was going, at most it had two years left. Probably just one. If you keep doing everything you’ve been doing, you’ll be gone. That’s an interesting message to get when you take a new job. I have to hope that … the changes being made this year lead to another five years for this show. And clearly, this summer made the case for why this show needs to be on the air. It felt like every week there was a story about powerful men behaving badly or strange goings on. In New York, the number of murders is down 75 percent from its peak, but that’s not the case with this kind of crime at all. We have a wall in the writers’ room that has 50 New York Post headlines on it from the summer. It’s not like the show’s original conceit doesn’t make sense anymore.”

Prior to SVU being renewed for a 14th season, Leight said to TV Guide, “I don’t want it to be a victory lap, I want it to be 14 years down, seven to go, as opposed to 14 years down and it’s been a good run.” Ratings “roller-coastered” in season 13, from its lead-in at the time, Rock Center with Brian Williams with competition from CSI: Crime Scene Investigation on CBS and Revenge on ABC. “I get so tired of people saying that the show is down from Meloni,” Leight says. “From the point of view of scripted hour-longs, we’re performing very strongly for NBC. Would we perform differently for a different network? Probably. Or with a different lead-in? Probably.”

2012

In October 2012, Leight said of the future of the Law & Order franchise – which currently consisted of just Law & Order: SVU – “(Dick Wolf and I) sometimes talk in general terms of where (the franchise) could go. I’m curious to see if there’s another iteration somewhere down the line,” he says. “We try hard to maintain a certain level of quality which I think is why the shows sustained in reruns so well. And I’d like to believe there’s room for another generation in some way.”

2011

On April 11, 2011, Variety reported that Leight would serve as showrunner for Law & Order: Special Victims Unit starting with the thirteenth season. Prior to Leight joining SVU, he wrote one of the final episodes of Law & Order: Criminal Intent, the 10th season episode “Trophy Wine”, which was the only episode of the season not to be inspired by a real life, true event. Before production on the 13th season of Law & Order: SVU, NBC President Bob Greenblatt sought Leight to “reset the tone” of the show from its prior seasons, while having the storylines “still be compelling but a little more grounded”.

2008

In 2008, he left Criminal Intent after its seventh season to be the showrunner for HBO’s series In Treatment, a year after CI moved to cable. In July 2009, it was announced that Leight had joined FX’s new drama Lights Out.

2003

His play James and Annie premiered at the Ensemble Theatre of Cincinnati in March 2003. The play involves an “interracial love affair”.

2002

His colleagues included a reference to Leight’s play Side Man; in a third-season episode, “Shrink-Wrapped”; a bickering couple argues about the motivations of the married couple in the play. Upon a recommendation from Balcer, Leight was named the show’s executive producer and head writer in 2006 when Balcer left the show at the end of the fifth season.

2001
