US police procedural drama Law & Order: LA is the latest project to be added to Telltale Games' bulging to-do list.

The industrious Sam & Max/Tales of Monkey Island developer today announced it's working on a series of episodic games based on the show for PC, consoles, mobile and tablets.

Due out later this year, the games will follow the investigations of Detective Ricardo Morales and Tomas 'TJ' Jaruszalski. As in the show, interrogation, sleuthing and courtroom drama will all play a key role.

"Law & Order: LA fits very well with the style of episodic entertainment experiences Telltale has been building since our very first days," commented Telltale CEO Dan Connors.

"The talents and skills that we've been building at Telltale are ideally suited for the structure and storytelling approach of televised procedurals like 'Law & Order.'"

There's no trailer or screens yet but a bare-bones website has gone live.

That now brings the number of titles currently in development at Telltale Games to eight, with Jurassic Park, Back to the Future, Puzzle Agent 2, The Walking Dead, Fables, Hector: Badge of Carnage and a new Kings Quest title all at various stages of completion.
