The most popular legal show on television ever, NBCâ€™s Law and Order, (now retitled SVU or Specials Victims Unit), had an episode in season 6, entitled, â€œCharismaâ€, dedicated to Emmy Ann Wooding, on November 16, 2004.
Emmy Ann Wooding was an assistant staff member at Wolf Films who worked at the Universal Studios Television for 37 years. She was described as â€œthe most wonderful human being and the most brilliant employee within the entertainment industry.â€ She died in an automobile accident on October 24, 2004, at the age of 57.
The plot of â€œCharsima,â€ was this:
Abraham Ofinian/Eugene Hoff, a serial pedophile and con artist, who uses religion as a guise to profit, has impregnated a twelve year old girl,Melanie, in hopes of stealing her inheritance. Also instrumental in the death of a number of the children (which he fathered) and of his followers, Ofinian/Hoff is on the run with Melanie and it is up to Detective Olivia Benson and the rest of the Special Victimâ€™s Unit to save the girl and stop Ofinian/Hoff from further carnage.
Wherever Wooding has ever worked, everyone still remembers her and her professionalism.
Hats off to you, ma'am.
