Here's what to know about the films and when you can see the Law & Order alums on TV.
Law & Order fans will soon be seeing familiar faces on the Lifetime channel.
In the coming weeks, actresses Diane Neal, Stephanie March, and Elisabeth Rohm will each be involved with a Lifetime original movie under the channel's slate of "Ripped from the Headlines" films — a fitting match for the stars who played ADAs on Law & Order and SVU.

Of her time with SVU, March told ET: "I don't think there's one female, well, certainly not on this screen, who did not take away some of the work and then put it into action in her personal life."
"I think all three of us, and certainly Mariska [Hargitay], of course. The subject matter wasn't something you could just leave at work necessarily," March added.
Rohm praised Lifetime for tackling such difficult topics, saying the network is "committed to helping women and people in abusive situations become empowered and heroic in their own lives."
Neal also said of Lifetime: "They're on the cutting edge and they're so supportive of women."
