J.J. Abrams J.H. Wyman “Sci-Fi Buddy Cop” Pilot ordered by Fox
Who is going to turn down a J.J. Abrams show?! Fox, which is looking to fill the void now that Fringe has just ended, has ordered a pilot for the untitled “futuristic robot buddy cop” show from writer J.H. Wyman and producers Abrams and Bryan Burk.
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.
Two more beautiful actresses have been added to the cast of True Blood‘s 6th season, Amelia Rose Blaire (90210) and Jurnee Smollett (Friday Night Lights)! Blaire will play Willa Burrell, the daughter of Louisiana Gov. Truman Burrell (Arliss Howard), who has long clashed with her father over vampire rights and Smollett will play wide-eyed Nicole Wright, who is not concerned with money and more concerned with the common good and doing what’s right.
Sleepy Hollow CSI?
You know what we need? More sexed up versions of our favorite classics!! After the “success” of the CW‘s Beauty and the Beast, it looks like Fox is following suit and looking to adapt the classic Washington Irving story Sleepy Hollow into a modern-day crime drama. Fox has tasked Alex Kurtzman and Bob Orci (Star Trek, Transformers) to writing the new supernatural pilot with Len Wiseman (Underworld) set to direct. Not too sure what to think about this one, but with as many crime shows that are on TV right now how can this one set itself apart from the others?
