About the Show
"Law & Order: Los Angeles" fuses the classic ripped- from-the-headlines storytelling with the distinctive backdrop of LA - delving into the unique attitudes, cultures and crimes of the West Coast.
The drama follows Detectives Rex Winters (Skeet Ulrich, "Jericho") 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.
Protecting the detectives who serve under her is Lieutenant Arleen Gonzales, (Rachel Ticotin) and is driven, focused, and meticulous. She is a twenty-year vet with a background in military intelligence who now oversees the Homicide 1 section of Robbery Homicide Division.
Deputy District Attorney Morales (Alfred Molina, "En Education," "The Da Vinci Code," "Spiderman 2") 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.
At Morales' side is Deputy District Attorney Evelyn Price (Regina Hall, "Death at a Funeral"), an idealist and a true believer. She has faith that the system she serves is capable of drawing clean lines between good and evil, a belief that her boss, the pragmatic DDA Morales, does not share.
Deputy District Attorney Jonah "Joe" Dekker (Terrence Howard, "Crash," "Hustle & Flow") is a White Knight crusader whose political ambitions often bring him 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.
Partnered with Dekker is the new hot shot in the DA's office, Deputy District Attorney Lauren Stanton (Megan Boone, "My Bloody Valentine"). She graduated at the top of her class at Harvard Law School and is still idealistic enough to believe the system works. As a recent addition to the team, she is eager to prove herself. She is young, smart, beautiful, and has a chip on her shoulder about all three.
