There is Law And Order: Special Victims Unit, Law And Order: Criminal Intent, and now the latest addition to the L&O universe — Law And Order: Los Angeles. Season one kicked off last night on NBC, and not surprisingly, did well.
The original series Law And Order was created by Dick Wolf back in 1990 and takes place in New York City. The drama is real and you can’t help but stay glued to your TV watching the storylines unfold. Lasting 20 seasons, the series marks the longest running police drama in television history. Naturally, it would make sense for the networks to test a new spinoff. Law And Order Los Angeles draws viewers in from the start and gives them all the violence and drama they need to be fully satisfied by the time credits roll. The characters seem realistic, but Los Angeles is a far cry from New York City. Will the new series be successful?
Here’s the network’s description for next week’s Law And Order: Los Angeles episode airing on October 6th:
“When murderous cult member “Baby” Jane Lee Rayburn (guest star Nancy Youngblut) is found stabbed to death, Detectives Rex Winters (Skeet Ulrich) and Tomas “TJ” Jaruszalski (Corey Stoll) question multiple suspects, including the cult ringleader Denis Watson (guest star Michael Massee) and Jane’s former cellmate, Maura Dillon (Bonnie Root). However, the case cuts very close to home for Detective Winters when his wife Lori (Teri Polo), a former Detective, is questioned. DDA Dekker (Terrence Howard) and DDA Stanton (Megan Boone) find themselves facing a trial where the line between suspect and victim is blurred.”
