David Tennant, the current host of the Masterpiece Contemporary series on PBS and KERA, will make his U.S. television debut in an NBC pilot, Rex Is Not Your Lawyer. With his tenure on the long-running Doctor Who series coming to an end where he was, without question, THE best doctor ever, Tennant will star as a top Chicago lawyer that suffers from panic attacks.
Tennant follows the path of another brilliant British actor, Hugh Laurie, who stars in the medical drama, House, and who has become a household name on this side of the pond. Now, if they could only land Billie Piper, too, we’d be in business.
