The new cops are ready for duty. Kelli Giddish and Danny Pino join NBC’s SVU (back September 21) as Amanda Rollins, an ambitious former Atlanta cop,, and Nick Amaro, a New Jersey-raised, top-notch interrogator.
“Amanda has a masters in forensic psychology,” says new executive producer Warren Leight. “I wanted a book-schooled detective to work with the more intuitive Nick.”
Says Giddish, “Everybody on the set is really excited and energized. They’ve lost a family member with Chris Meloni leaving, but they’ve been very accepting of us. Amanda is thrilled to be here working with these people, and so am I.”
