Daniel Sunjata (Kenny Tremont) and Andrea Roth (Mrs. Marley Emerson) also worked together on Rescue Me (2004), which first aired five months before this one.
Tracie Thoms (Linda Ziman) appears in this episode. She costarred in the movie Rent (2005) alongside Jesse L. Martin (Detective Green).
First episode of L&O to air after the death of actor Jerry Orbach (Detective Lennie Briscoe), before the credits there was a brief "In Memoriam" dedication to him with his picture being shown, however this was not included on the DVD release.
The title is from the the Christian Bible meaning "...material wealth or greed...". Mammon was sometimes personified as a god and derives from the ancient Middle Eastern, and ancient Greek word meaning the same. The title is also just one letter different from "Ammon", the last name of multimillionaire Ted Ammon upon whose murder the story is loosely based. The plot also includes elements from Ammon's murder, including; a security system and its hard-drive as evidence; a contractor suspect having an affair with the victim's wife; an artist wife who may have played a part in the murder and whose premature death complicated the case; and rumors of the victim's homosexuality; among other details.
Daniel Sunjata, who plays the episode's murder suspect, had a recurring role on Law & Order: New York (1999) as a CSU technician.
