Lest it depict a Los Angeles in which (the horror!) no women exist, NBC’s ‘Law & Order: LA‘ spin-off has cast its first female roles – and just in the nick of time, since filming on the series starts Monday.

Joining Skeet Ulrich, Alfred Molina, Terrence Howard and Corey Stoll on ‘LOLA’ will be Regina Hall (‘Ally McBeal’) and Wanda De Jesús (‘CSI: Miami’).

Hall will fill the role of Deputy DA Eva Price, “a gorgeous and brainy bombshell with a strong sense of moral rectitude,” Deadline.com reports.

De Jesus meanwhile will play Arleen Gonzales, the “cool and authoritative” captain of the Robbery Homicide Division, says EW.com.

Because of the slight delay in rounding out the cast – until recently, Ulrich was the only one on board – ‘LOLA’s premiere date was pushed back to Wednesday, September 29, where it will lead out of ‘SVU.’
