If you’re still mourning the loss of original-recipe “Law & Order,” then you’ll either be comforted or further hurt by the first glimpses of “Law & Order: Los Angeles.”
NBC has released the first on-air promo for the new series (it shares screen time with its Wednesday-night lead-in, “Law & Order: SVU”), and from the little we can see, “LOLA” will deliver a lot of what the original, New York-based show did. You have your wise-cracking detective (Corey Stoll, channeling Jerry Orbach), your intense prosecutors (Terrence Howard gets the only line in the spot, but fellow lawyer Alfred Molina looks equally stern when we see him). Of course, you’ll have the chung-chung sound — creator Dick Wolf has promised that.
So, long-time “L&O” fans, how are you approaching the new series? Are you happy that the new show isn’t trying to fix what arguably was never broken, or are you bummed that the franchise has switched casts and coasts?
Have a look at the promo and tell us what you think. “Law & Order: LA” premieres Sept. 29.
