J.J. Abrams pitches new sci-fi series to the Fox network
LOS ANGELES, Sept 7 — Fringe creator and showrunner duo J.J. Abrams and J.H Wyman are teaming up again for a new cop drama series set in the future.
To fill the void left by Fringe, which will wrap up this season on the Fox network, J.J. Abrams (picture) cooked up a new plotline with J.H. Wyman. Their project, which is still without an official title, will be set in the near future, at a time when LAPD's human officers will be partnered with humanlike androids and a detective takes on the case of the first android-on-human murder.
Aside from Fringe (the fifth and final season will start airing on September 28), J.J. Abrams had another series on Fox, Alcatraz, a supernatural-themed thriller that came to an abrupt end in March 2012 after only thirteen episodes.
The man behind Lost is also producing a new NBC series titled Revolution, which will start airing on September 17. — AFP-Relaxnews
