Bochco, Finkelstein back on ‘Law’

Steven Bochco and William Finkelstein will return to “L.A. Law” as exec producers on the series, NBC announced yesterday, replacing John Tinker and John Masius after less than a season on the NBC drama.

Finkelstein was a supervising producer on “Law” before leaving two years ago to co-create and co-exec produce ABC’s “Cop Rock” and subsequently “Civil Wars”– both in conjunction with Bochco, whose company has a distribution arrangement with Twentieth.

Bochco remains a consultant on “L.A. Law,” which he co-created.

Production is winding down on “Civil,” which has received a total 18-episode order; “Law” will continue production into April.

“L.A. Law” has seen its ratings gradually decline while undergoing several behind-the-scenes shifts and cast defections over the past two years, including last year’s midseason exit of then-exec producer Patricia Green.
