Donnnnnng… Donnnnnng….

That’s Big Ben doing his best (albeit regal) impersonation of the ‘Law & Order‘ “doink-doink,” to celebrate the news that ‘Law & Order: UK’ is skipping across the pond so that U.S. TV viewers can get a look-see.

Set in and around London, ‘L&O: UK’ works off scripts from NBC’s original ‘Law & Order’ and then adapts them to jibe with the UK legal system as well as fold in a few uniquely British twists.

The ITV series – starring Jamie Bamber (‘Battlestar Galactica’), Bradley Walsh, Freema Agyeman (‘Doctor Who’), Harriet Walter and Ben Daniels – will make its Stateside premiere on BBC America Sunday, October 3, at 10:30/9:30c. The rest of the episodes (26 in total are set to hit BBCA) will unspool Fridays at 9/8c.
