Fox Orders New Sci-fi Pilot from J.J. Abrams and J.H. Wyman

Fans of Fringe will be pleased; Fox has ordered a new futuristic cop-drama pilot from Fringe executive producers J.J. Abrams and J.H. Wyman. The untitled series is described as an "action-packed buddy cop show taking place in the near future, when all LAPD officers are partnered with highly evolved human-like androids.”

Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions, which already had huge titles like Lost and Alias to its name, will be producing the show in association with Warner Bros. Entertainment. Wyman will be executive producing alongside Abrams, as well as writing the one-hour drama pilot. Other executive producers include Bad Robot’s Bryan Burk and Kathy Lingg.

Abrams has been an overachiever lately; in addition to the sci-fi pilot, he’s also sold a half hour comedy pilot titled Adulting to Fox last year. And, as we know, he’ll be directing the highly buzzed-about Star Wars Episode VII. But with Fringe wrapping up earlier this month, it seems Abrams and Wyman needed to fill the empty space left behind. Hopefully it fills the empty space left in Fringe fans’ hearts, too.
