Shedding light into some of the characters, executive producer Rene Balcer said Winters "witnessed the failure of the police both in the Rodney King incident and the first hours of the ensuing riots. It made him take his role as a cop more seriously and rely on himself more than his colleagues." Balcer added, "He's married to his former partner that he was having an affair with while he was married to his previous wife. ...They have two kids."

About Morales, "He has a deep abiding sense of justice. He got his work ethic from his father, a groundskeeper at Hillcrest Country Club who took great pride in his work. Like most LA DAs, he has an eye for politics and he's very media savvy."

As for Price, "Morales' second chair, she's an African American who grew up in the upper middle class LA area of Baldwin Hills. Her father's furniture store was burned down in the King riots. Though she has a healthy skepticism of the LAPD's treatment of minorities, she believes the anarchy she saw was worse than anything that the LAPD might do. She's right of center on law and order issues compared to Morales."
