‘Homicide’ gets new life at NBC

NBC confirmed its intent to renew the acclaimed drama “Homicide: Life on the Street” for next season (Daily Variety, Feb. 14), assuming it can complete negotiations with companies holding rights to the show.

Reeves Entertainment, which produced the series, has folded, so NBC is negotiating with its successor company, MCEG, and Reeves’ former parent Thames TV.

The plan is to bring the series back next fall, with Tom Fontana and Barry Levinson to remain its exec producers — possibly in conjunction with the web’s in-house wing, NBC Prods.

Though the renewal is still being worked out, NBC has picked up options on principal cast members and ordered additional scripts on the series, which the network gave a four-week run in January.
