LAW & ORDER HEADS TO HOLLYWOOD Seen First in Asia on Universal Channel
Law & Order spots a new address as it moves to the west coast in its latest addition, Law & Order: Los Angeles.
Following exclusive premieres of the latest shows with the most buzz, such as The Event and Outsourced, Universal Channel once again brings another top- notch television event to Asian screens – Law & Order: Los Angeles.
Set against the distinctive backdrop of glitzy tinsel town, Law & Order: Los Angeles repeats the winning formula of the Law & Order legacy, fusing classic ripped- from-the-headlines storytelling with an in-depth, behind the scenes look of police detectives and district attorneys working on the high-profile crime cases.
Other than the riveting storylines, this latest installment also has a strong ensemble cast to boot, with Academy Award nominee Terrence Howard (Hustle & Flow, Crash, Iron Man) and accomplished British actor, Alfred Molina (An Education, The Da Vinci Code, Spiderman 2) as the series mainstay.
The drama follows Detectives Rex Winters (Skeet Ulrich, Jericho, Scream) and Tomas “TJ” Jaruszalski (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 played by Alfred Molina 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.
Law & Order: Los Angeles is a Dick 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.
Law & Order: Los Angeles Premieres 14 February 2011 Exclusively on Universal Channel (TM’s Hypp TV) Every Monday @ 10pm (SG, MY, HK, TW)
