CHICKASHA – All play and no work may not be a successful mantra for some, but for a small television cast and crew at the University of Science and Arts, it’s a formula that’s paying off. Beginning Jan. 25, USAO’s “Studio 18” will feature an exclusive interview with “Law & Order” actress Milena Govich.
Originally from Norman, Govich plays Detective Nina Cassidy, the first-ever female detective on NBC’s long-running drama.
