'Law and Order: Los Angeles' Could Bow in Fall
"Law & Order" is not stopping at having two spin-offs. The original criminal drama has just been picked up for four additional episodes that would bring the 20th season to a total of 20 episodes and along with the announcement, NBC's Primetime Entertainment President Angela Bromstad revealed there would be a Los Angeles edition.
During Winter TCA Press Tour, Bromstad emphasized "Law & Order: Los Angeles" is still in very early stages. "We're talking about writers," she said about the franchise. "We officially call that LOLA," Jeff Gaspin, NBC Television Entertainment Chairman chimed in.
Having "LOLA" is a thought that was born when knowing that the 21st season of "Law & Order" is not yet confirmed. "...if, for instance, 'Law & Order' the mothership didn't go beyond a couple more years then that [way] of telling stories is so unique that I actually think it could work in Los Angeles with a new look and a new set of cast [members]," Bromstad said. "And also there's not really, other than 'Southland,' a great LA-based cop show."
NBC has approached creator Dick Wolf to consider doing the L.A. version and the talk of developing it occurred. Should everything go smoothly, then it could premiere as early as Fall.
