Steven Bochco Developing ‘L.A. Law’ Reboot

L.A. Law” creator Steven Bochco is working on a reboot of the classic ’80s legal workplace drama.

Speaking on the Rich Eisen Show Monday, Bochco said that he has been asked frequently in the more than 20 years since the series went off the air to reboot “L.A. Law,” but has never been interested in doing so. Then he was contacted four months ago by one of the show’s original writers, Bill Finkelstein, who had an idea for a revamped version.

“I called my friends at Fox, because they own the show, and they were very interested in having a conversation, 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,” Bochco said, adding that he could see some actors from the original series returning for the new version.

Bochco said that Fox “was very enthusiastic about doing it, so we’re developing.”

The original “L.A. Law” ran on NBC from 1986 to 1994.
