NBC pilots 'Prime Suspect,' Civil War drama
by James Hibberd
NBC’s adaptation of the British hit Prime Suspect is going to pilot, along with an ambitious Civil War drama.
The Crossing (formerly titled Reconstruction) is set in the aftermath of the Civil War, where “a soldier crosses the country and settles into a complicated town where he is welcomed as its savior — whether he likes it or not.” Which sounds a bit like a Western, huh? Excited about this. Northern Exposure creator Joshua Brand is showrunner.
Prime Suspect follows “an iconoclastic female detective [that] has to make her bones in a tough New York precinct that is dominated by men.” Peter Berg is executive producing and directing with Desperate Housewives producer Alexandra Cunningham as showrunner.

A western is nice variety. I wish NBC a lot of success in the fall because I think they have a lot of promising pilots.
I think viewers are craving more choices. And NBC was usually for quirky, different programming.
