Law & Order: UK casting news

Monday, September 8, 2008 by

ITV1 has announced the cast for the upcoming Law & Order: UK.

The 13-part series, based on the US franchise, will be co-produced by Kudos Film and Television, Wolf Films and NBC Universal. And those stars? Let’s cut to the press release…

Bradley Walsh is DS Ronnie Brooks, a real East End, copper’s copper, friend and partner to the charming DS Matt Devlin, Jamie Bamber whose approach to policing is part seduction part force. Both report to DI Natalie Chandler (Harriet Walter) a working mum who would back them to the end.

While the CPS team comprises Freema Agyeman as hard working, strong-willed young prosecutor Alesha Phillips; Ben Daniels as dedicated Senior Crown Prosecutor James Steel, a man on a mission for justice; and Bill Paterson as their respected boss CPS director George Castle, a man trying to balance his ideals with the bigger picture.

ITV Director of Drama, Laura Mackie says: “Kudos have put together the perfect cast to deliver a quintessentially modern British take on a highly successful crime format. The breadth of the acting talent involved will build on the strength of Chris Chibnall’s lively and complex scripts.”

    How come Bradley Walsh is in everything these days? He’s filming a daily quiz for ITV1 at the end of the month.

    ITV1 – ALL Bradley Walsh, ALL the time!

    I hope this makes Channel 5 wake up to the fact that they do not broadcast nearly enough episodes of the real Law and Order series – how about the earlier series – say from Series 7 (Series 6 will be out on DVD in January). Good luck to ITV – I will watch but doubt if they can match the American version.
