Prime Suspect Pilot Review

Pilot Scoop: Prime Suspect

NBC's Fall lineup has a ton of comedy, but there is also an equal measure of drama, including a remake of the British series Prime Suspect. Maria Bello stars as Jane Timoney, a tough detective in New York City. Unfortunately, she's not just up against some seriously sick perps; she's the only woman in her division, and the men around her won't let her forget it. Jane has to prove herself while also maintaining some semblance of a personal life.

  • Where it works: Bello has perfected the badass woman bit, and she turns in a strong performance here. It's a good thing, too, since the role was originated by Helen Mirren in the British version, and comparisons are inevitable.
  • Where it doesn't: The show doesn't bring anything new to the detective procedural game. It has some cache since it's the remake of an acclaimed show, but that may not mean anything to viewers who aren't familiar with the original.
  • You might like this show if: You're a crime-show junkie and constantly watch reruns of Law & Order.
  • When it's on: Thursdays at 10 p.m. on NBC.
