Law & Order: Los Angeles is a police procedural drama series from NBC that aired during the 2010-2011 television season. The show is set in Los Angeles, California, and focuses on the detectives and lawyers who work for the LAPD and the Los Angeles County District Attorney's office.

Corey Stoll stars as Detective Tomas "TJ" Jaruszalski, a former Marine who takes his job very seriously and is willing to bend the rules to get the job done. Rachel Ticotin plays Lieutenant Arleen Gonzales, TJ's no-nonsense boss who has a reputation for being tough but fair.

Alfred Molina is another standout performer as Deputy District Attorney Ricardo Morales, a career prosecutor who is determined to put the right people behind bars. Molina brings a quiet intensity to his role, and his scenes with the defense attorneys are some of the show's most compelling.

Terrence Howard rounds out the main cast as Deputy District Attorney Jonah Dekker, a cerebral and calculating lawyer who often clashes with Morales. Howard's character is something of a wild card, and his backstory is slowly revealed over the course of the season.

Skeet Ulrich plays Detective Rex Winters, TJ's partner in the LAPD. Ulrich's casting was something of a surprise at the time, as he was known primarily for his roles in films like Scream and The Craft. However, he rises to the occasion and delivers a strong performance as a seasoned detective who is still haunted by a tragic event from his past.

The show's focus on the police detectives and lawyers distinguishes it from other crime dramas, which often focus solely on the investigation or the trial. Law & Order: Los Angeles aims to provide a more holistic view of the criminal justice system, showing how the evidence is gathered, how it is analyzed, and how it is presented in court.

The show's tone is moody and atmospheric, with Los Angeles serving as a character in its own right. The city's sprawling landscape is frequently showcased, from the glitz and glamour of Beverly Hills to the gritty streets of South Central.

The show's writing is sharp and often topical, with episodes tackling issues like immigration, gang violence, and police corruption. The show also delves into the personal lives of its characters, with each member of the ensemble cast receiving their own character arcs.

Despite its high-caliber cast and ambitious storytelling, Law & Order: Los Angeles struggled to find an audience during its single season on the air. The show was cancelled due to low ratings, and its final episodes were broadcast in July of 2011.

Overall, Law & Order: Los Angeles was an impressive addition to the long-running Law & Order franchise, showcasing the many aspects of the criminal justice system in a fresh and engaging way. While the show may have been short-lived, it remains a thoughtful and well-crafted crime drama that is worth checking out for fans of the genre.

Law & Order: Los Angeles is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (23 episodes). The series first aired on September 7, 2010.
