NBC's "Prime Suspect" is ready to be remade and start its production after its inability in casting the right person to play the character Detective Jane Tennison. It is still arguable who will become Tennison but Maria Bello, who starred on "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit", has been placed in the front line to replace the previous actress Helen Mirren.

Bello as quoted by EW said, "There may be interest in me doing it, but I haven't read anything yet or talked to anyone in-depth about it." Moreover, she said that she could not take over Mirren who has frequently won Emmy for the role. "C'mon! How could anyone compete with her? Didn't she do about 10 of them and win an Emmy every time?" said Bello.

Peter Berg from "Friday Night Lights" is assigned to be the producer of the reboot and Alexandra Cunningham who was the producer of "Desperate Housewives" is in charge as the showrunner.

"Prime Suspect" is originally a British police television drama series made by Garanada Television for the ITV network in the 1990s and 2000s.
