Anchor e-mail hacking on 'Law & Order'

A news anchor hacks into the e-mail account of a co-worker. Now that's fiction. And one of the anchor's colleagues is named Dawn? It's part of the plot on Wednesday night's episode of the NBC series Law & Order (10 p.m.).

From the log line: "While investigating the murder of television reporter Dawn Prescott (guest star Audra Blaser), detectives Lupo (Jeremy Sisto) and Bernard (Anthony Anderson) discover that she was involved in a love triangle involving another reporter at the station.
