NBC Orders Pilot for Remake of Prime Suspect

Telemystery: Mystery and Suspense on Television

It was almost a year ago that NBC shelved its remake of Prime Suspect. Now we're learning (via The Hollywood Reporter) that the network has picked up a pilot for the series, set in a New York precient dominated by men.

The original Prime Suspect, which aired seven "seasons" over a period of 15 years, stars Helen Mirren as Detective Chief Inspector (and later Detective Superintendent) Jane Tennison, and was created by crime novelist Lynda La Plante. NBC's remake is scripted by Alexandra Cunningham (Desperate Housewives, Fastlane).

What held NBC up last year was reportedly difficulty in casting the lead. No word yet on who might be up for the part this time around.
