'Law and Order: Los Angeles' Could Bow in Fall

Talks have been undergoing between NBC and creator Dick Wolf to consider having a whole new set of cast playing crime-solving in Los Angeles.

"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.

    Was wondering does anyone know what the song was in the beginning of the echo park espiode?

    I hope that the 2nd episode is better than the 1st. The cast doesn't fit. You cancelled a winner

    I lived in Cali for 10 years. I am sad they want to move L&O to LA. Would rather keep it on the East coast. Loved the characters in NY, too.

    Look what happened to Project Runway...went to LA last season and was a virtual flop. Came back to NY. Maybe that will happen here.

    i thought the phrase was "if it ain't broke don't fix it" why take a great show that owes most if not all of it's edge to the city of New York and move it to L.A.? I guess better to keep tha name than have a blatten rip-off under a new name. I do like the chicago idea, not many shows filmed there. Casting though, keep with the theme, relative unknowns.

    why move it to L.A., I dont understand. The way they had the three L&O running was great. If they wanted a new look, why not Chicago or Miamor even New Jersey.

    Yeah and NBC canceled southland to have TNT pick it up.

    They should never stop the mothership as long as the franchise itself goes on, which should be forever!
