Exclusive: 'Rex Is Not Your Lawyer' DOA at NBC?

NBC has delayed a verdict on Rex Is Not Your Lawyer, the much-buzzed-about drama pilot starring Doctor Who’s David Tennant. Peacock execs were eyeing Rex to possibly fill one of its post-Jay Leno Show holes at 10 pm this spring. But a source close to the show tells me, “The sets are coming down this week.”

An NBC rep declined to comment, but a Peacock source insists Rex remains under consideration for fall. “The sets are on fold-and-hold,” maintains the insider. “They will still be available if the show is picked up for the fall.”

The project, which co-stars Jerry O’Connell, Abigail Spencer, Jane Curtin, and Jeffrey Tambor, had been in development at NBC-Universal for nearly two years. A pilot was commissioned last October and completed in December.

Bummed Rex is not coming to your TV this spring? Are you holding out hope for a fall berth? Sound off below!
