In a deal between NBC and the UK's ITV Studios, America and Britain are swapping projects. ITV is doing a UK version of Law and Order while NBC has signed on for a remake of Prime Suspect, a drama series that starred Helen Mirren as Jane Tennison, "a tough homicide investigator who found herself juggling her difficult job and equally harrowing personal life." The show earned Mirren two Emmys and "made waves for featuring a woman as head of a murder squad."
NBC's primetime entertainment president Angela Bromstad said, "We want to carefully choose a couple of iconic titles this year to reinvent, and our intention is to create another classic television show from this brilliant original format."
Hollywood's all about "reinvention" these days, that's for sure. Who could reinvent Mirren's old role, though? Is there an American actress you could picture doing well with this character?
