NBC president Bob Greenblatt has defended the decision to cancel Law & Order: LA.

The sophomore crime drama was recently revamped, losing three regular cast members and introducing original Law & Order star Alana De La Garza.

Speaking ahead of the network's 2011 upfront presentation, Greenblatt said: "We tried [to keep the show on the air], but we didn't have the time period to bring it back if it isn't going to show signs of growth."

He also agreed with L&O: LA producer Rene Balcer's claim that the show's initial launch had been rushed.

"They didn't put it on the ground properly," said Greenblatt. "It went on the air without a pilot, then it did well but was taken off."

Greenblatt has also recently explained his decision to renew Chuck for a fifth and final season, and revealed his reasons for dropping David E. Kelley's Wonder Woman pilot.
