Critic Consensus: No consensus yet.

Series Info

A mistake from `Law & Order' overseer Dick Wolf about a crusading Manhattan tabloid columnist and the journalism students who aid in his investigations. It was canceled after just five episodes, but eight more aired on West Coast NBC stations the following spring.

Critics Consensus: Deadline deserves credit for its excellent writing and stellar casting, but the drama's depiction of the journalism industry rings decidedly false.
