Fox Commits to Pilot for Robot Buddy Cop Drama from J.J. Abrams and FRINGE’s J.H. Wyman

Though Fringe is coming to an end after the upcoming fifth and final season, showrunner J.H. Wyman and executive producer J.J. Abrams are already making moves for their next TV collaboration.  Deadline reports that Fox has acquired an untitled new series that’s described as an action-packed buddy cop show set in the near future where all LAPD officers are partnered with “highly evolved human-like androids.”  In other words, a slightly more realistic/dramatic version of Mac and C.H.E.E.S.E.

Fox has committed to producing the pilot, which Wyman will write.  Wyman will also executive produce the project with Bad Robot’s Abrams and Bryan Burk.  The the pilot be picked up to series, it’ll be interesting to see how they handle the android aspect of the show.  Will it simply be an actor with light prosthetics/makeup (I’m sure Haley Joel Osment is available) or will there be a heavier CG-feel to it?  Whatever the case, I’m inclined to give Wyman and Abrams the benefit of the doubt.
