NBC has ordered a two-hour pilot remake of the longtime Masterpiece staple “Prime Suspect,” reveals The Hollywood Reporter. The popular ITV show starring Helen Mirren ran on PBS from 1992 through 2006 (Current, Nov. 6, 2006). The new one will be co-produced by ITV and Universal Media studios. “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,” said Angela Bromstad, NBC and UMS president of primetime entertainment.
