A pilot for the legal series starring David Tennant had been made, but, reckons Auseillo, “a source close to the show tells me, “The sets are coming down this week.”
The show had been a possibility for a 10pm slot this spring, but that now definitely will not be happening. An NBC rep declined to comment, but a network source insists that 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.”
Either way, the fact that NBC didn’t pick it up straight way suggests the network has concerns over the show.
