Report: 'Law & Order' opens an L.A. office
By Rick Porter


"Law & Order" may be going bicoastal in the fall.

NBC has reportedly picked up 13 episodes of a West Coast version of the show to air next season. Deadline.com says the network picked up 13 episodes of "Law & Order: Los Angeles" for the fall, where it will join "Law & Order: SVU" and very possibly the "L&O" mothership, which the site says is looking "pretty good" to return for a 21st season.

NBC isn't commenting on the report.

Blake Masters, who created the Showtime series "Brotherhood," is on board as a writer for "Lola," as "Law & Order" creator Dick Wolf has been calling the new show. There's no word on a cast yet.

NBC Entertainment president Angela Bromstad said in January that she had talked with Wolf about developing an L.A.-based extension of the brand. Since then, though, there's been little public chatter about the new version, even through the frenzy of pilot casting season.

I really don't know why. Not one of those current L&Os is really all that successful.. This is such an overload.

I agree Manny. I'm sure this will be DOA just like Law and Order: Trial by Jury

I'm sort of surprised that there's still talk of this! I read a rumor in the special L&O edition of TVGuide! I figured with the flagship show's status in question and CI being moved to USA, there was no way that another spin-off would fly!

They're probably hoping for a replacement for L&O, but I don't see it working.

I must be one of the few who actually liked L&O: Trial By Jury...

I liked the two episodes I actually got to see! Jerry Orbach as Lenny Briscoe was always one of my favorites!

I'm surprised they could afford this, isn't that the reason why L&O:CI had so many issues.

I loved it to I like all the Law&Order series I don't know if Law&Order:UK is aired in the US but that's a great show as well and there were rumours of a French version once if that was aired here I would watch it.Law&Order series are very populair in European countries such as The Netherlands,Italy and France.

Trial By Jury actually did well in the ratings on Friday, but NBC was doing better and very cocky then. Of course none of it's replacements have gotten even half the ratings it got. I think NBC owed it to Wolf and the L&O brand which made them so much money, to give that show a better shot.

I really hate that NBC (or USA) never had the balls to air L&O: UK. They actually made quite the effort to make it similar to a US show and it is VERY VERY good.

I think that was back during their post-Friends "plan". To cancel well performing but not blockbuster shows and revamp the network. (Providence was another) Yeah ... worked out well didnt it.
