None of the female cops inhabiting the current TV landscape may be quite as unapologetically outspoken and abrasive as Jane Timoney on Prime Suspect.
"She's a tough New York broad," executive producer Sarah Aubrey tells TVGuide.com. "She doesn't have a lot of her rougher edges smoothed off and that works for her in her own way. It's fascinating to watch a character say everything you're thinking and not really care about the consequences."
Toby Stephens will star opposite Maria Bello in NBC's remake of Prime Suspect, Deadline reports.
In the update, Bello stars as detective Jane Timoney, who needs to prove herself in the male-dominated New York precinct. Stephens will play her live-in boyfriend with an ex-wife who doesn't want their son staying over with him and Jane.
Maria Bello is in final negotiations to star in NBC's remake of Prime Suspect, THR reports.
