Law & Order: Los Angeles is adding a touch of Law & Order. Alana De La Garza, who co-starred on the mothership series, will join the spinoff, reprising her character as A.D.A. Connie Rubirosa. On the show, from Wolf Films and UMS, Rubirosa will work with D.D.A. Jonah Dekker (Terrence Howard).
This completes the creative and casting overhaul of LOLA, which included the shift of Alfred Molina’s Ricardo Morales from a prosecutor to a detective partnered with TJ Jaruszalski (Corey Stoll) and the departure of Skeet Ulrich, Regina Hall and Megan Boone. There is no return date set for the show yet as NBC brass is giving the producers more time to work on the revamp.
SDB Partners-repped De La Garza was the most recent ADA on Law & Order. She joined at the beginning of Season 17 and was on the show for 4 seasons, until the veteran procedural’s end in May. Her addition creates a stronger tie between Law & Order: Los Angeles and Law & Order and makes the new series a more traditional spinoff, which features character(s) from the original series. “I hope fans of the ‘mothership’ will be happy to see the return of Alana’s character, Connie Rubirosa, one of the longest-running assistant prosecutors on Law & Order,” L&O creator Dick Wolf said. “Alana has a huge following and it will be interesting to follow her character as she comes to terms with Los Angeles justice.”
