[6.08 - French Time] According to The Hollywood Reporter, David Tennant (Doctor Who) will make his American Television debut.

Rex is Not your Lawyer is a one-hour pilot for a legal dramedy greenlit by NBC. Rex Alexander, played by Tennant, is a top Chicago lawyer who begins suffering panic attacks and takes up coaching clients to represent themselves in court(http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/hr/content_display/news/e3i8161b51e045b5cf6f1b2296423bf7743).

Doc Martin meets Hitch? Will David Tennant be the next Hugh "House" Laurie? Will he be replaced by Christian Slater if a series is ordered like what happened for Rupert Penry-Jones, the Spooks and Whitechapel star? Coincidentally your humble servant reads on Nikki Finke's Deadline.com that Adrian Pasdar is let go from Heroes (http://www.deadline.com/hollywood/adrian-pasdar-let-go-from-nbcs-heroes/) - Now they can cast Pasdar in the US House of Cards or they can remake Profit.

Humble tip to the Peacock: drop the title. And in continental Europe "Rex" evokes an Austrian cop show starring a German shepherd dog. The idea of Tennant playing an attorney escaped from a David Kelley show suffice.
