Now, spinoff Law & Order: Los Angeles is taking a page from one of 2009's biggest newsmakers: Tiger Woods. In "Playa Vista," airing Wednesday at 10/9c on NBC, the team investigates a pro golfer's murder. The episode also deals with what happens after a marriage breaks apart (much like a certain golfer) and the children are stuck in the middle.
"Ultimately, what we wanted to look at was how children, whose parents are going through a very rough marriage or maybe even a divorce, how they're affected and how they're used by one parent or the other as a pawn in some chess game that the parents are playing," executive producer René Balcer says.
