[17.49 - French Time] Deadline.com's Nellie Andreeva reports that NBC sticks both to its project of a new version of The Rockford Files and to the idea of an American remake of Prime Suspect.

We thought that the Peacock would spare us another remake of a television classic when it passed the 2010 Rockford, starring Dermot Mulroney in the role popularized by James Garner between 1974 and 1980. But another pilot is due to be filmed with David Shore (House) still on board as writer/exec producer.

The pilot for a US remake of British classic series Prime Suspect, delayed by NBC because of casting difficulties for the main character (played by Helen Mirren in the original), is apparently also active. But Alexandra Cunningham replaces Hank Steinberg (Without a Trace) as scriptwriter. Actor/director Peter Berg's production company Film 44, which is behind this US Prime Suspect is now also involved in The Rockford Files.
