Re: sf/f TV development news - 2013

JJ Abrams is a busy boy. His robot cop pilot is picked up at FOX (which needs a sci fi series in the mix now that Fringe is over.)

The untitled Warner Bros. TV/Bad Robot-produced project is described as an action-packed buddy cop show, set in the near future, when all LAPD officers are partnered with highly evolved human-like androids.

...

This is one of two dramas from A-list auspices this season set in a world where human-looking robots co-exist with humans. The other, from Howard Gordon and Josh Friedman, which has a big penalty at NBC, is still awaiting word. NBC also is yet to pull the trigger on Abrams’ high-concept drama with Alfonso Cuarón, which has a pilot production commitment and had been exploring casting since December.
PS, here's more on NBC's robot crime show. Sounds like a similar idea but with a bigger canvas.

...thriller soap set in a world much like ours, where human-looking robots are commonplace. After a routine homicide explodes into the first robot-on-human murder, the lead detective must solve the case and investigate a growing robot rebellion while dealing with the impact on his own fractured family.
