An early episode of NBC's new Law & Order spinoff set in Los Angeles will tackle the money that supported California's gay marriage ban.

Voters narrowly approved Proposition 8 in 2008. The measure trumped a state Supreme Court ruling that had legalized the institution. Last week, a federal judge ruled the law to be unconstitutional.

Law & Order: Los Angeles Executive Producer Rene Balcer told gay entertainment blog that the upcoming episode will focus on the funding of the initiative.

“One of the episodes that we're doing is [about] the money behind the Prop 8 people and the hypocrisy of black churches supporting a proposition like that, and also looking at the whole 'initiative industry' and how these lobbyists make a lot of money,” he said.

Balcer said support for the measure from Black churches was “hypocrisy.”

“There is a hypocrisy,” he insisted. “In fact, that's one of the lines in the script: 'How can you as a black minister who has fought for civil rights now fight to deny someone else their civil rights?'”

“I mean it makes no sense,” Balcer added.

Alfred Molina will play Deputy District Attorney Morales when the show debuts in the fall. The original Law & Order series ended its 20-year run last year.
