NBC is rebooting the British crime drama “Prime Suspect,” which is one of my favorite shows. The original British series was set in 1970s Britain and stars Dame Helen Mirren as the first female detective (in the U.K. they call them “DCI”) to run a homicide case. Battling both criminals and sexism at the same time is no easy task, but you have to love the trail-blazing women who prove their skills in openly hostile work environments. Props to NBC for showing us that there’s still work to be done to achieve workplace equality.
