Several sources are reporting that at today’s TCA (Television Critics Association) Press Tour, NBC Primetime Entertainment President Angela Bromstad said that a Los Angeles version of Law & Order is in the early stages of development. Jeff Gaspin, NBC Television Entertainment Chairman had said “We officially call that LOLA. ”
It was also reiterated that NBC plans that Law & Order will return for a 21st season, but nothing is set in stone as yet. No word yet on what date or time this would air, but with the Jay Leno show out of the picture at 10 PM, there are a few more options to move Law & Order, SVU, or this new series to 10 PM where these shows historically commanded higher viewership.
NBC also confirmed that Law & Order added four more episodes for this season, bringing the total to 20 episodes.
