Fringe cocreator J.J Abrams and showrunner J.H. Wyman have received a pilot production commitment from Fox for a futuristic police drama, Deadline reports.
The concept follows the Los Angeles Police Department in the near future, when all officers patrol alongside lifelike androids.
The highly sought-after project will be produced by Warner Bros. TV and Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions. Wyman will write the script, and he and Abrams will be two of the show’s executive producers.
The commitment comes as Fringe enters its final season and another Abrams endeavor, Revolution, prepares to launch on NBC.
At the moment, the buddy cop pilot doesn’t have a title. May we suggest Good Cop, Bad Robot?Follow @kimroots
