The Cape Film Commission (CFC) has announced that the long-running American TV police procedural, Law & Order, is coming to South Africa, to be titled, what else but Law & Order: Cape Town.

12 episodes have been ordered with filming set to begin on location, in Cape Town, by May of 2012, with a cast and film crew that will be primarily South African.

Hopefully the cast will be diverse. I'd fully expect to see black South Africans represented in leading roles.

    I am so excited. I'm a L&O junkie. I've watched Criminal Intent Paris (especially difficult because Parisians talk very fast with lots of slang and there were no English subtitles). I also love L&O UK.

    I'm just hoping that this version will end up on one of the South African channels I get on Sky. And, no, I haven't gotten hold of the Moscow version yet, but I doubt it's available with English subtitles.

    I just wish that the new versions would use original stories. They're just localized versions of old L&O episodes. It is interesting, however, to see how the different legal systems work.
