Alfred Molina

NBC’s freshman series LAW & ORDER: LOS ANGELES will return to the regular lineup with a two-hour original premiere on Monday, April 11 (9-11 p.m. ET). The crime drama procedural will resume in its regular day and time on Monday, April 18 (10-11 p.m. ET).

The announcement was made by Bob Greenblatt, Chairman, NBC Entertainment:

“We are pleased to welcome ‘Law & Order: Los Angeles’ back to NBC’s regular lineup. Dick Wolf and his team have made some exciting creative changes and we can’t wait to re-introduce the show to audiences.”

Law & Order: Los Angeles follows Detectives Ricardo Morales (Alfred Molina, An Education) 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, Morales, a former Deputy District Attorney, has returned to the police force after he became frustrated with the system, 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.

Protecting the detectives who serve under her is Lieutenant Arleen Gonzales, (Rachel Ticotin) who is driven, focused, and meticulous. She is a 20-year vet with a background in military intelligence who now oversees the Homicide 1 section of Robbery Homicide Division.

Deputy District Attorney Jonah “Joe” Dekker (Terrence Howard, Crash) is a white knight crusader whose political ambitions often bring him into conflict with his boss. He sincerely believes in fighting the good fight. At the same time, he has never been one to turn down a high-profile case.

At Dekker’s side is Deputy District Attorney Connie Rubirosa (Alana de la Garza, Law & Order). Rubirosa served as Executive Assistant District Attorney in New York and she recently located to Los Angeles to help her ailing mother.

In addition, Law & Order: SVU will broadcast encore episodes on Wednesdays beginning March 23 (9-10 p.m. ET).
