L.A. Law (1986-94)
lived a glamorous, full life. The series pilot, written by Steven
Bochco (Hill Street Blues) and Terry Louise Fisher
(writer/producer of Cagney & Lacey), when viewed today
is a time capsule of office life that reveals sexism, racism, and
generational approaches to power.
Full of quality TV promise,
L.A. Law launched with a bang. Why isn't it now celebrated
for its transformational prowess? We cover that, too, and
applaud Alfre Woodard's epic
performance, which occurred early in her career.
