Lynda La Plante, creator of Prime Suspect, was one of the producers of this failed pilot, now served up as an unexciting two-hour movie about rival prosecuting attorneys in the New York City DA's office. Michelle Forbes (Homicide: Life on the Street) has a hint of Sigourney Weaver's steeliness, and Stockard Channing, embittered and in a wheelchair, has Stockard Channing's blasé sarcasm. Neither has Jane Tennison's grit.
