J. J. Abrams has sold a pilot for a science fiction police drama to Fox.
The concept for the untitled series, according to TV Line, focuses on lifelike androids working alongside the Los Angeles Police Department in the near future. It will be produced by Warner Bros. and Abrams’s Bad Robot Productions.
J. H. Wyman will write the pilot script and will, along with Abrams, be the show’s executive producer. The script, reported The Inquisitr, will center on the first-ever robotic murder and hints of a robotic revolution.
Fringe, which Abrams co-created, is entering its fifth and final season and another show of his, Revolution, is set to debut on NBC. On the big screen, he will direct the upcoming Star Trek film, which is set for release in the spring.
“It was bigger,” said Zachary Quinto, who reprises his role as Spock. “It was bolder, I think, than the first one, and that was pretty big and bold from my stand point. I’m really excited to see what they do with it.”
