At the time the news broke it was also greeted by a deluge of negative sentiment. Because of this NBC will not be moving forward with the project, although there is a slim chance that the idea may be revisited in the future.

    Besides Dennis Stanton, other recurring characters that helped Jessica solve the various murders she encountered were private investigators Harry McGraw and Charlie Garrett (played by Jerry Orbach and Wayne Rogers, respectively), British intelligence agent Michael Haggerty (played by Len Cariou) and N.Y.P.D detective Lt. Artie Gelber (played by Herb Edelman). However, the only one of these characters to be spun off onto his own series was Harry McGraw in the short lived series titled, appropriately enough, "The Law and Harry McGraw" (1987).
