J.J. Abrams' New Robot Cop Show Picked Up By Fox
J.J. Abrams is not only heading the next installment of the Star Wars franchise, which is already in its planning stages, but he also has a new pilot for a series in mind — an untitled project about cops and robots that Fox has decided to pick up.
The show will be "an action-packed buddy cop show, set in the near future, when all LAPD officers are partnered with highly evolved human-like androids," reports Entertainment Weekly. The pilot, which has already been written, will be executive produced by J.H. Wyman of Fringe.
And even that doesn't cover everything that Abrams has been up to. NBC has ordered a pilot for a series called Believe that will be produced by Abrams. This show follows the "unlikely relationship … between a young girl with a gift and a man sprung from prison who has been tasked with protecting her from the evil elements that hunt her power."
Believe is expected to come to television sometime later this year. No word yet on the ETA of the untitled cop/robot buddy show.
