The Fringe legacy continues at Fox. Days after the cult series ended its run, the network has given a pilot order to a new sci-fi drama from Fringe‘s J.J. Abrams and J.H. Wyman. 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. In a competitive situation, the drama landed at Fox in September with a pilot production commitment. Wyman wrote the pilot and will executive produce with Bad Robot’s Abrams and Bryan Burk. Kathy Lingg is co-exec producing.
