Casey Anthony: The Dexter/Law & Order crossover

Starring… Kristen Wiig!

The show could be a season finale, capping off a season of Dexter wreaking vengeance on an allegedly murderous mom with a penchant for foreign-language tattoos and TJ Maxx.

Believing that Anthony is a killer who got away with murder — like most of America, it seems — Dexter seeks a methodical way to do her in.


The crime is traced back to New York City, where Sam Waterston and Dexter trade breathy insults.


Casting call for the part of Anthony ... hmm. A story in the Orlando Sentinel pegged Kristen Stewart as a frontrunner. But let's say we move forward in the future a little and age the fictionalized Anthony as a welfare grandma hiding from the limelight.

We could get Kristen Wiig! She'd have just the right vacant expression!

Will Dexter finally pay for making killers pay? Will Casey Anthony get the plastic-room treatment? TV writers, your script is calling.


Cue the famous Law and Order ching-ching!

Inspired by recent Facebook posts and Twitter tweets, we have come up with a sweeps-tastic fictionalization of the Casey Anthony Trial: a crossover episode linking NBC's Law and Order and Showtime's Dexter.
