NBC takes a pass on David E. Kelley's Legally Mad
Bruckheimer's show, titled The Chase, follows a team who tracks fugitives. Kelley's legal show is currently unnamed. NBC may also pick up The Event, a drama about the biggest cover-up in national history. The network's pickups also include remakes of the Helen Mirren show Prime Suspect, as well as the 1970s P.I. series The Rockford Files, THR reports.
These four new projects are expected to be announced at NBC's Television Critics Association Panel Sunday, along with the pickups of two previously announced dramas: Undercovers from J.J. Abrams and Rex is Not Your Lawyer starring Doctor Who's David Tennant.
