Jimmy Smits worked magic on Showtime's "Dexter" as flawed D.A. Miguel Prado, but his turn as a guilt-ridden Supreme Court Justice who quits to serve the little man failed to capture an audience.
NBC dramatic series "Outlaw" was axed.
The series starred Smits as Cyrus Garza, a right-winger in the court who flipped more to the left and private practice, after his Father, a liberal judge, died in a car crash.
The show was not able to gain an audience in its Friday night slot at 10 PM ET. The production of the show, which has shot eight episodes, was put on hiatus last week.
Variety reports that Dateline NBC will fill in for the hour-long series.
The new Cheryl Hines' produced series "School Pride" this Friday, October 15, at 8 PM ET, with the two-hour block of Dateline NBC airing from 9 PM ET to 11 PM ET on Friday nights afterwards.
The last four episodes of "Outlaw" left will air on Saturday nights at 8 PM ET (except on Saturday, October 30).
