"[Law & Order creator] Dick Wolf is truly a visionary," Hargitay told Fox News Digital in 2023. "And I think that's a very singular thing to be a true visionary who understands our culture in a very deep way but also understands it's sort of ironic that a crime show would be actually calming in a way to our nervous system, knowing that somebody is out there taking care of it. That our voices are heard, and there are people that are on it."
