Learn Now Who Plays
Detective Rex Winters In
LAW & ORDER: LOS ANGELES!!
I am – Hercules!!
A 40-year-old Skeet Ulrich (“Scream,” “Jericho”) will play the lead cop in “Law & Order: Los Angeles,” which fills an NBC vacuum created by the cancellation of the original New York “Law & Order.”
Winters, the first and so far only role cast, will be teamed with thirtysomething fellow LAPD detective T.J. Jaruszalski.
I remain slightly excited about this one because it was created by Blake Masters, mastermind of Showtime’s brilliant but largely unwatched mobster/politician saga “Brotherhood.”
It’s a fall show, so NBC should be announcing the rest of the cast any minute now.
It will air Wednesdays at 10 p.m., opposite two other "new" legal dramas:

“Mr. Show: The Complete Series,” $47.49 last week, is momentarily $20.99!! (58% Off!!)

Not Dick Wolf?

Why the hell do they pick names no one has used since the early 1900s? Seriously, who names their kid Rex?
July 7, 2010, 7:24 p.m. CST
Did Brotherhood conclude on a satisfying note? I'm interested in checking out the series, but I'd like to make sure that there will be closure.
July 7, 2010, 7:29 p.m. CST
How could an entirely different person "create" a series that's an offshoot of an original series created by another guy? Especially when there's already been like 3 other spinoffs from that original series by the same person?
July 7, 2010, 7:32 p.m. CST
instead of T.J. Jaruszalski. Now THAT would be appointment television!
July 7, 2010, 7:33 p.m. CST
comic writers create new series within the realm of an existing universe. Dick Wolf created the brand, but unless he has a creative hand in the new show, he really can't claim a sole creator credit.
July 7, 2010, 8:01 p.m. CST
Do you really think that this L&O isn't going to use elements of the various other versions that Wolf is credited with creating? Maybe I could see calling Masters a "co-creator" but unless they've dumped everything from the title to the "in the criminal justice system" intro to the "ka chunk" sound effects between scenes it still a deriviative of Wolf's work.
July 7, 2010, 8:02 p.m. CST
Damn. Dudes, we're all getting fuckin' OLD! You know, if Cobain hadn't blown his head off (or Courtney hadn't hired someone to do the job, whatever) he's be 44 now? Shit.
July 7, 2010, 8:07 p.m. CST
they ruin the OS and now still want to start a new pretty boy version?<p><p> This will tank<p> Hell L&O: CI is tanking
July 7, 2010, 8:15 p.m. CST
That's the best they could do? I'll skip this one.
July 7, 2010, 8:21 p.m. CST
Does that mean this will be more like Criminal Intent with a real star with a supporting partner, instead of regular L&O where both were basically equals?
July 7, 2010, 8:21 p.m. CST
Wolf already did a Dragnet show which at first was basically L&O in LA without the lawyerin' parts.

...they should get Alana de la Garza on this one too. That chick is smokin' hot.
July 7, 2010, 9 p.m. CST
or what you do"
July 7, 2010, 9:42 p.m. CST
They should hire the entire cast of Law & Order for Law & Order: Los Angeles. Just mix 'em around some, have Sam Watterson play the Police Capt, Anthony Anderson, can play the medical examiner. Because it makes a lot of fucking sense to replace Law & Order with Law & Order West coast.
July 7, 2010, 9:48 p.m. CST
There's a TV name for you.
Regardless of whether it has all the trappings og the original or it's numerus branches, it will be an original in the sense that it features a mostly (if not entirely) new group of characters and an entirely new location for the franchise. Masters is writing the script, but how much of it is collaboration is anyone's guess. So he may only be a co-creator, but he still has a hand in the creation. To say that just because it's branded a Law and Order franchise means that it is a carbon copy of the originals set-up is rediculous.
July 7, 2010, 10:05 p.m. CST
we are debating a new Law & Order series, so who cares who get credit for creating it? I still won't go out of my way to watch it. Unless Bill Murray's daughter is added to the cast.
July 7, 2010, 10:35 p.m. CST
Is it Mid-Season? That show really picked up steam last year.
Yeah, Parks and Rec is a midseason show.
July 7, 2010, 10:44 p.m. CST
I was half expecting David Tennant from the headline. Thought maybe his pilot somehow got smushed into this.
July 7, 2010, 10:44 p.m. CST
and not a lawyer.
July 7, 2010, 10:45 p.m. CST
It's not drama. It's not entertainment. It's propaganda and everyone involved in it should be ashamed of themselves. Hell, I'm not even a Christian but I think their constant bashing is unconscionable. I am done with this franchise.
July 7, 2010, 10:56 p.m. CST
I will miss it. Hoping that Outsourced is good.
July 7, 2010, 10:58 p.m. CST
automatically feels cheap, trashy, and not worth my time. Not sure why that is.
July 7, 2010, 11:07 p.m. CST
Rex Winters sounds like he's one of Vivid's stunt cocks. Ick.
July 7, 2010, 11:09 p.m. CST
Just when Parks and Rec makes its return. You can see that one coming a mile away.

Sounds like the name of a talking dog in an animated film.
July 8, 2010, 1:30 a.m. CST
... and they don't have a cast yet?Haven't the fall shows already started filming?
July 8, 2010, 2:33 a.m. CST
If this retains the fucking original "Police then courtroom" aspect, or will it be all cop like the other inferior spinoffs? (except trial by Jury of course) I can't find confirmation either way anywhere.
July 8, 2010, 4:24 a.m. CST
Fuck me. I'm getting old.
July 8, 2010, 6:39 a.m. CST
He's really going to explode all over this role. I'm sure he'll drop loads of emotion into the part.
July 8, 2010, 9:03 a.m. CST
police detective. A private eye sounds much better, and should have been set in Vegas.
July 8, 2010, 9:17 a.m. CST
I could have swore it started earlier than that.....
July 8, 2010, 10:39 a.m. CST
A lot of shows don't go into production until th end of the month or early july.. depends on their premiere date.

a pilot. I guess the concept and, hopefully, a script or two was all NBC needed to greenlight this show.<p>Maybe they were waiting on a few actors, their "first choice", to see if the pilots they had done would get picked up or if they'd be free to join L&O.

They had the first good cast on Law & Order in years, the first time ever they had the exact same cast 2 seasons in a row, and they cancelled them. I'd rather watch any detective they ever had on the show than watch this guy. I doubt this show will last more than a year or so...
July 8, 2010, 12:46 p.m. CST
Well gaahhleee. (Duh duh!)

"it will be an original in the sense that it features a mostly (if not entirely) new group of characters and an entirely new location for the franchise"? Wow. I wish I'd known that was all it took to "create" a TV show. I could be basking royalties now, having created shows such as "CSI: Chicago" (complete with a Who song [I've Had Enough] over the credits) "Southern Exposure" (Jewish doctor forced to practice in quirky town in Arkansas), "Desperate Homemakers" (soap shenanigans three blocks over from Wisteria Lane) and, of course, "Cheers: Rhode Island." Wow. Creating is EASY!

Fuck Jericho. Miracles was the Skeet Ulrich show that should have been saved.
