'Law & Order: LA' Tweaks Its Name, Plans Episode Based on Recent High-Profile Murder Case Deadline.com

"Law & Order: LA" is returning to television next month with a shortened name, from the original "Law & Order: Los Angeles," and the new season will include an episode inspired by the November 2010 murder of Hollywood publicist Ronni Chasen, reports Deadline.com.

The episode, which is currently shooting, will focus on a famous Hollywood stylist who is murdered in what appears to be a robbery gone wrong, the story notes. The approach moves "Law & Order: LA" closer to its parent show, "Law & Order," which is known for basing its plots on local crime stories, the piece adds.

“Law & Order: LA” returns on NBC April 11.
