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.

David Tennant, best known to Doctor Who viewers as the current and tenth Doctor in the long running BBC British series has been cast as the title character in an hour-long pilot for NBC in the US called, "Rex Is Not Your Lawyer."
Having already completed his work playing the lead role as The Doctor in Doctor Who since 2005 after Christopher Eccleston, with his remaining three stories being shown later this year as specials (starting with Waters of Mars on the 15th of this month on BBC), Tennant has already been seen doing American television as the new host for Masterpiece Contemporary (formerly Masterpiece Theater) for PBS.
