NBC has picked up a 13-episode order for "Law & Order: Los Angeles," according to Deadline.com’s Nellie Andreeva.
"Brotherhood" creator Blake Masters has been hired to write the new series with the legendary Dick Wolf, who created the "L&O" franchise.
In other ‘L&O’ news, according to the article, "Law & Order: SVU" has been cleared for a 12th season, with Mariska Hargitay and Christopher Meloni scheduled to return in a one-year deal they signed with NBC last spring.
Furthermore, the article states that it looks like the original series "Law & Order will indeed live to see another year, giving it a record-breaking 21st season, which would stand alone as the longest running primetime drama in history.
The series’ cable home TNT is expected to throw in an off-network fee that will help lessen the cost for NBC of bringing the crime drama back for another year.
