In a story from The Hollywood Reporter, Jeffrey Tambor (Arrested Development) is slated to co-star with David Tennant in NBC's hourlong pilot Rex Is Not Your Lawyer.

The show, from Universal Media Studios, follows Rex Alexander (Tennant), a big shot Chicago lawyer who starts "suffering panic attacks and takes up coaching clients to represent themselves in court."

Tambor is going to play Rex's psychiatrist. He is a specialist in anxiety disorders but he also suffers from them as well. To compound their relationship he starts a fling with Rex's mother.

David Semel will direct the show from a script by Andrew Leeds and David Lampson.
