|Skeet Ulrich has explained that the city of Los Angeles is key to upcoming crime drama Law & Order: LA.|
The actor told the Los Angeles Times that the show's setting was integral to its storylines
"It's a very different venue for this show but a fascinating one," he explained. "There's a lot [involving] the entertainment industry in this town to pull stories from. [It's got] everything from the biggest sea-port in America, to the beaches, to very diverse ethnicities and races. There's a lot to do here, so we will never run dry on stories."
Ulrich revealed that the series premiere would involve a crime on Sunset Boulevard, and that a future storyline will explore LA's surfing subculture.
The former Jericho star also explained that he had spent time with real homicide detectives and hoped to reflect their work on screen.
"We'll hopefully bring that realism to it and still keep it compelling," he said.
