NBC eyes another twist on legal dramas with Rex Is Not Your Lawyer

Andrew LeedsI'll give NBC credit for trying. The fourth place network just keeps throwing what they can at the wall hoping they can get something ... anything ... to stick. Everybody knows that legal dramas work, but thankfully, this isn't yet another Law & Order spin-off. Unless it's Law & Order: Do It Yourself.

Rex Is Not Your Lawyer is a dramedy about an anxiety-filled lawyer who pushes his clients to represent themselves in court because he just can't handle it. NBC has given a pilot order to Rex Is Not Your Lawyer, which could just as easily be them wanting to know how the hell the creators are going to make this work.

Rex is a project from the winners of Bravo's 2005 competition series Situation: Comedy: actor Andrew Leeds and novelist David Lampson. The fact that it's an hour-long series means it's probably going to take its legal side at least somewhat seriously, marrying comedy and legality much the same as Boston Legal and Ally McBeal have done.

The fact that they have David Tennant (Dr. Who, BBC America) to play the lead role is hopefully going to help them. David has a huge following from Dr. Who fans who will gladly follow him wherever he goes! Hopefully NBC will let David give as much of himself to the role as possible, as long as they don't make him play something he's not the show should do well!
