For more than two decades, "Law & Order" has served up weekly crime dramas, "ripped from the headlines" and neatly packaged. Now the TV police and legal franchise is making its first foray into the burgeoning true-crime genre with an eight-part series on the 1989 murders by California's Menendez brothers of their wealthy parents.At the time of the murder, Lyle was 21 and Erik was 18 .Like the Charles Manson cult killings of 1969 and the O.J Simpson double murder trial of 1995 – dramatized in an Emmy-winning series on FX in 2016 – the Menendez case seems to tap into the zeitgeist of a period in U.S. culture.
