NBC’s ‘Outlaw’ stops production

Net has five episodes of Jimmy Smits drama in the can

NBC has stopped production on its frosh Jimmy Smits drama “Outlaw.”

Series starring Smits as a Supreme Court justice who returns to the private sector as a crusading defense attorney will continue to air in the Friday 10 p.m. slot for at least the next few weeks. NBC has five completed episodes in the can, on top of the three that have already aired. Peacock said Wednesday it was taking a production hiatus on the show starting Thursday and would evaluate its perf over the next few weeks.

While the final verdict is still out, the show’s long-term prospects look grim barring a big turnaround. “Outlaw” in its most recent outing last week averaged 4.7 million viewers and a 1.0 rating/4 share in the adults 18-49 demo.

“Outlaw” is the first of NBC’s frosh fall crop to halt production. Series, from Universal Media Studios and Conan O’Brien’s Conaco banner, was created by John Eisendrath, who exec produces with Russell Schwartz and David Kissinger.
