NBC has ordered six more scripts for their new cop series Prime Suspect, making it the first freshman drama on the network to get a vote of confidence this season. It also joins sophomore series Harry's Law in getting more scripts ordered, but NBC has stopped short of handing out full seasons for any of their dramas so far.

Prime Suspect has struggled to attract viewers early in its run, earning a mere 1.5 adults 18-49 rating for its last two episodes after premiering with a 1.8. NBC has put reruns of the show in the spot of now-cancelled The Playboy Club on Monday nights, no doubt hoping to give the series more exposure in a different time slot.
