SVU Goes West

Remember last week when Dick Wolf said there were "no plans" for franchise crossovers for his new show Law & Order: Los Angeles?  Well, clearly we weren't paying attention when he followed that up with, "you never know what's going to happen."  As Access Hollywood reports, an early episode of Special Victims Unit's upcoming season will see Mariska Hargitay's Olivia Benson character travel across the country to solve a case that will then allow her to cross paths with Los Angeles star Skeet Ulrich.  It make sense to use the still-popular SVU to introduce auds to the still-untried spin-off, but, I gotta say, I kind of prefer my "Jack McCoy in board shorts and Hawaiian shirt" idea.  Look for Law & Order: Special Victims Unit to kick off its twelfth season at the end of next month, and for the Los Angeles team-up episode to air shortly thereafter, just before the premiere of the series proper.
