Check out the guide and preview of NBC’s new show Prime Suspect!

  • Based on the critically acclaimed British television series of the same name, “Prime Suspect” has been redeveloped for American audiences by writer Alexandra Cunningham (“Desperate Housewives,” “NYPD Blue”), director Peter Berg (NBC’s “Friday Night Lights”) — and stars Maria Bello (“A History of Violence”) as tough-as-nails Detective Jane Timoney.
  • Timoney finds that being a homicide detective in New York City is tough enough and having to contend with a male-dominated police department to get respect makes it that much tougher.
  • She’s an outsider who has just transferred to a new precinct dominated by an impenetrable clique of a boys’ club. Timoney has her own vices too — with a questionable past — and she tends to be forceful, rude and reckless.
  • But she’s also a brilliant cop who keeps her eye on one thing: the prime suspect.
  • Also starring are Aidan Quinn (“Unknown”), Brian O’Byrne (“Flash Forward”), Tim Griffin (“Star Trek”), Kirk Acevedo (“Fringe”), Joe Nieves (“How I Met Your Mother”), Damon Gupton (“The Last Airbender”) and Peter Gerety (“Blue Bloods”).
  • Prime Suspects will be airing on Thursday at 10/9c on NBC.

    Thanks for ruining a great show. Leave British shows alone. Remember Life On Mars? Probably not. Oh and Coupling of course.

    You have got to be kidding! Jane Tennison would have beaten down those apparently emasculated cops halfway through that bit. 

    Another horrible remake of a great British Show. Remember the other horrible remakes? The Avengers, The Prisoner, Top Gear, Cracker, Life on Mars, Just to name a very few. 

    Hollywood; HIRE SOME WRITERS! stop muddying the waters of truly great shows. 

    Who watches network shows anyway? Want to pay homage? Call your shows something else.
