Law & Order: Los Angeles Carries the Torch to the Other Coast

At first glance, the set of the latest Law & Order, looks familiar. Binders are marked "homicides" and "robberies." But, there are detailed city maps - of Los Angeles. Upon closer view, there's a Dodgers cap. Outside the window lie the ever bustling 101 and 110 freeways.

It doesn't look like we're in New York anymore.

After 20 years, Law & Order is moving west for its fourth spinoff, Law & Order: Los Angeles, premiering Wednesday at 10/9c on NBC.

"At first, I thought it was ridiculous. Law & Order is synonymous with New York," star Corey Stoll tells "Then I realized it's what the show needed to expand and take on new life. I really think the die-hard fans are going to love it, even the most begrudging New York snobs, myself included."

New York is the only backdrop Law & Order has ever known รข€” including spinoffs Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Law & Order: Criminal Intent and Law & Order: Trial by Jury. The Los Angeles version, LOLA for short, will premiere barely six months after the unexpected cancellation of the original series just short of what would have been its record-setting 21st year on the air.
