‘Prime Suspect’ Shuts Down

So much for rooting for the crime drama that never quite found the audience it deserved. Prime Suspect is shutting down production. I really hope that the lesson networks take away from this is not that you can’t make shows about workplace sexual harassment, or that you can’t make shows with tough female main characters. But I’m not sure I trust the NBC not to seize on those things, rather than deciding that branding the show as a Prime Suspect remake rather than letting it be its own thing was a bad move.
