David Tennant's 'Hamlet' to air in April in the US + update on 'Rex Is Not Your Lawyer'
The Royal Shakespeare Company's 2008 stage production of Hamlet will air on PBS' Great Performances series on Wednesday, April 28 2010 at 8pm EST. Hamlet originally aired in the UK on Boxing Day in 2009 with more than 900,000 viewers.
NBC so far has refused to confirm any pilot pickups but the network is expected to make announcements very soon. It seems likely that they will pick up hour-long pilot Rex Is Not Your Lawyer. They reportedly plan to order 10 drama pilots for next season to replace Jay Leno's 10pm talk show. Stay tuned.
