Battlestar vet snags role on new Law & Order

jamie bamberI'm a huge Law & Order fan, and as such, I am quite jealous of the Brits today. Not only are they getting their very own Law & Order, called Law & Order: UK, but Battlestar Galactica's Jamie Bamber is set to star. Bamber, who just ended his role as Apollo on the Sci Fi Network series, is playing one of the main detectives, along with fellow Englander, Bradley Walsh.

According to Bamber, L&O's UK edition is just like the American version, but will be about "London judiciary and London cops. It's got the same premise as the original American Law & Order, same everything, just with a UK production company and UK actors."

The series is slated to begin production in August and will air on the UK channel ITV. There's no word as to whether or not it will jump the pond and be available to American audiences, but I'd definitely be interested to see how this long-running series translates overseas.

I'm sure the poster was referring to Northern Ireland, we get his drift though.

Funny. As if it couldn't have been called Law & Order London or something like that. They have to make it about the whole United Kingdom including Wales, Ireland and Scotland. Sounds ridiculous. I bet my fat ass they will stay put in London.
