"We were, you know, we were two weeks out from ending our show Black-ish," Anderson said on PEOPLE (The TV show!). "They made the announcement that Law & Order was coming back. So, I picked up the phone and called Dick Wolf up and said, 'Hey Dick, is it true?' He said, 'It is.' I was like, 'Well, you know, I'm a free agent as of Nov. 19th.' And (Wolf) was like, 'Anthony, you have no idea how happy this phone call makes me.'" Anderson was on the Law & Order set less than a month later.
