Guns & coffee cups not the only Props on 'Law & Order:LA' set

by Jeremy Hooper

Law-order-los-angelesAn upcoming episode of the "Law & Order" Los Angeles spinoff will feature a Prop 8 storyline. This from AfterElton:

Executive producer Rene Balcer spoke to AfterElton.com about how the show will handle the contentious issue. Said Balcer, "One of the episodes that we're doing is [about] the money behind the Prop. 8 people and the hypocrisy of black churches supporting a Proposition like that, and also looking at the whole "initiative industry" and how these lobbyists make a lot of money."

Asked to elaborate on that "hypocrisy," Balcer is emphatic: "There is a hypocrisy... In fact, that's one of the lines in the script: 'How can you as a black minister who has fought for civil rights now fight to deny someone else their civil rights?' I mean it makes no sense."

Or as social conservatives will call it: "Law & Order: Special Rights Unit."

No word on when this modern day episode of "8 is Enough" will air. Though we're hoping for sweeps: Both in terms of the programming period and the action from the broom of justice that will ultimately force Prop 8 into the dustbin of history.
