The resurrected "Law & Order: Los Angeles" seems determined to return to the small screen with a bang.
The NBC crime drama, which was recently added back to the schedule following a cast shake-up, is filming an episode that will sound awfully familiar to to those with knowledge of Ronni Chasen's murder.
The "Law & Order" episode in question is titled "Benedict Canyon" and it centers on a Hollywood stylist who is murdered. NBC reps told TheWrap that "what appeared to be random robbery gone bad is really a murder for hire, with dark family secrets from the past [as] the motive."
Beverly Hills police characterized Chasen's slaying as a random, botched robbery, though a preliminary theory held that the gunman was an expert marksman. The suspect committed suicide when police attempted to question him.
Network reps were quick to add that "Law & Order: Los Angeles" is, ultimately, fictional.
The episode will guest-star Jobeth Williams ("Private Practice") and Jeff Fahey ("Lost").
