L.A. Law Reboot

L.A. Law Reboot in Development

Steven Bochco is looking to reconvene L.A. Law.

The prolific producer is developing an updated version of his classic ’80s legal drama, which ran for eight seasons on NBC, our sister site, Variety, reports.

During an interview on the Rich Eisen Show on Monday, Bochco revealed that four months ago L.A. Law scribe Bill Finkelstein approached him with an idea for a reboot. “I called my friends at [20th Century Fox], because they own the show, and they were very interested in having a conversation,” said Bochco. “And so Billy and I sat down and we sort of reconceptualized what L.A. Law would look like and be about over 30 years later… [and Fox] was very enthusiastic about doing it. So we’re developing [it].”

Bochco added that members of the original cast (which included Blair Underwood and Jimmy Smits) could appear in the new series.
