Production is scheduled to begin in the spring, with John Davis, Lawrence Mark and Topher Dow producing. Adapted by Jeff Vintar, Robot revolves around a society in which robots function alongside human beings in a servile capacity and are both harmless and helpful. The story line centers on a technophobic police officer (Smith) who is called in to investigate a murder that he believes was committed by a robot and uncovers a giant conspiracy.
