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.
