According to a recent blog post on the Entertainment Weekly (EW) website, NBC may be putting the new series starring David Tennant, Rex Is Not Your Lawyer on hold.
We originally reported that the series had been green lighted in November. According to the piece in EW, it was to possibly fill the holes left by Jay Leno's 10pm slot this spring, but now, "the sets are coming down this week" for it according to an EW source.
It stated that NBC declined to comment, but states that the series will remain for consideration for the autumn television schedule line up.
