NBC Orders More Scripts for PRIME SUSPECT and HARRY’S LAW

     October 12, 2011


Though the network already gave full season orders to Up All Night and Whitney, NBC is only showing a little bit of faith in their freshman series Prime Suspect and sophomore Harry’s Law. Two reports from The Live Feed reveal that each series has been given an order for six more scripts. This is different than having more episodes ordered, since the scripts still have to be approved before heading in front of the camera. But it does mean that the series aren’t close to being taken down by the network just yet, unlike Free Agents and The Playboy Club which have already been axed. Prime Suspect has a solid future, but it’s not extremely different from other police dramas out there. As for Harry’s Law, well Kathy Bates just brings a load of charisma to any project she gets her hands on, so I can see why it’s lasted this long. Stay tuned as more shows have their fate decided as the season goes on.
