Review

Attempts to establish the California credentials of this latest spin-off are immediately apparent: New York ghettos have been replaced with exclusive nightclubs, the crimes take place behind the gates of Hollywood mansions and tips come from gossip websites. But despite such surface changes, this is standard Law & Order — the case is still “ripped from the headlines” (tonight’s opener is inspired by the Bling Ring robberies that targeted such celebs as Paris Hilton) and screen time remains clearly divided between cop-shop
and courthouse.

On the legal side, Alfred Molina adds gravitas as an assistant DA, while police investigator Skeet Ulrich is partnered by Corey Stoll, a man whose luxuriant moustache is worthy of a 1970s porn star.

Summary

Jaruszalski and Morales investigate when thieves known to be part of a crime ring turn their attention away from robbery and toward assault and murder. A spoiled young actress is suspected of being involved, her role being to keep the victims entertained and out of their houses while the rest of the gang gets to work. Crime drama, starring Corey Stoll and Alfred Molina.
