NBC Release:

The newest addition to the “Law & Order” brand, “Law & Order: Los Angeles” fuses the classic ripped- from-the-headlines storytelling with the distinctive backdrop of LA – delving into the unique attitudes, cultures and crimes of the West Coast. The drama follows Detectives Rex Winters (Skeet Ulrich, “Jericho”) and Tomas “TJ” Jarusalski (Corey Stoll, “Midnight in Paris”) as they pursue cases through the diverse City of Angels.

As members of the Los Angeles Police Department´s elite Robbery Homicide Division, Winters is a straight-shooting ex-marine with a clear-cut world view as stubborn as he is, while “TJ,” who grew up the son of an Oscar-winning Polish cinematographer, knows too well the dark underside that is behind-the-scenes Hollywood.

Deputy District Attorney Morales (Alfred Molina, “En Education,” “The Da Vinci Code,” “Spiderman 2″) is a sarcastic realist who believes moral righteousness is great in theory, but ineffective in a street fight. Though he knows how to manipulate both his public image and the behind-the-scenes politics, he is still a killer in the courtroom who lives to see justice served.

At Morales´ side is Deputy District Attorney Evelyn Price (Regina Hall, “Death at a Funeral”) an idealist and a true believer. She has faith that the system she serves is capable of drawing clean lines between good and evil, a belief that her boss, the pragmatic DDA Morales, does not share.

"Law & Order: Los Angeles" is a Wolf Films production in association with Universal Media Studios. Wolf is creator and executive producer, Rene Balcer ("Law & Order," "Law & Order: Criminal Intent"), Blake Masters ("Brotherhood," "Rubicon"), Christopher Misiano ("West Wing," "ER") and Peter Jankowski (Law & Order," "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," "Law & Order: Criminal Intent") are executive producers.

So no mention of Rachel Ticotin or Peter Coyote. Are they only doing recurring spots or will they be featured in the main cast credits, like their NY equivalents did?

Maybe we'll only know for sure when the show premieres!

When debuting a show in a new location, it would seem a no-brainer that exhibiting respect for the new location and it's cultural treasures?

Taking the iconic Stahl House, and altering it for your cast photo? Very George Bush of you.
