Might we see original “L.A Law” studs Jimmy Smits, Corbin Bernsen, and Harry Hamlin in the newly-announced reboot?
Sure sounds like it.
Fox’s Gary Newman telling Deadline, “It is an interesting blend of old and new.”
The trade suggests “L.A Law” 2017 will take a cue from “The Force Awakens” – mixing new characters with several characters from the original, who’d now be bosses. Our money is on the above trio. Sadly, Larry Drake – who passed away last year – won’t be able to reprise Benny.
While the show has been developed in-house, it won’t automatically go to Fox.
“It will be taken to the other networks too,” said Newman.
Steven Bochco, the brains behind the original, is back for the new incarnation.
