Caught a cool show on Court TV last night, set in L.A.: North Mission Road. Interesting enough if you’re an investigation junky, but an added bonus of being set locally. Here’s the description from the show’s site:
If Los Angeles is a city of illusions, those illusions end at 1104 North Mission Road, the home of the Los Angeles County Coroner. Here, up to 20,000 cases are investigated annually, to determine the identity, cause and manner of death. North Mission Road is now a television series. With unprecedented access to the CoronerÔøΩs massive files, it presents their most unique and compelling cases. Each episode follows the highly trained professionals of the L.A. County Coroner Department as they use the latest in forensic medicine and investigative techniques to solve a variety of challenging mysteries.
And here is the Coroner’s real site. Dig the, ah, “inspirational” intro music.
