This is one pickup that we’ve been hoping for: Fox has given J.J. Abrams’ robot cops project a pilot order.
The untitled project is moving to the next stage at the network. It’s 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 other words, they don’t look like C-3Po (that would be Abrams’ other project making news this week).
