NBC has reportedly decided to drop The Rockford Files.

The show, a remake of the 1970s series, was being developed by House creator David Shore, with Steve Carell lined up to produce.

Dermot Mulroney had signed up to star as Jim Rockford, while Beau Bridges had also joined the cast.

However, Deadline claims that NBC was disappointed by the completed pilot. The show was recut but the new version also allegedly failed to convince the network.

A redevelopment of the concept is reportedly still possible.
