(CBS) Maria Bello can hang up her fedora.

The actress' NBC cop drama, "Prime Suspect," is shutting down production.

According to Deadline, the show's cast and crew were told of the shutdown just as the network announced its midseason schedule on Tuesday. "Prime Suspect" was not included in the lineup.

Production will reportedly wrap after the 13th episode, which starts shooting this week.

"Prime Suspect," based on a U.K. series of the same name that starred Helen Mirren, premiered in September and never picked up steam with viewers. Another remake, "The Firm," will take its place on Thursdays in the 10 p.m. slot.

NBC execs are still "considering their options" for the series, Deadline reports, but people on the show were told that it's canceled.
