Fox picks up J.J. Abrams buddy robot cop pilot

by on Sep.05, 2012, under Television

Not a lot of details yet, but reports are out this evening that Fox has picked up an unnamed pilot from J.J. Abrams, described as a “near-future action-packed buddy cop show”, in which the LAPD police are teamed up with “highly evolved human-like androids”. J.H. Wyman (Fringe) will write and executive produce with Abrams and Bryan Burk.

For some reason, my mind instantly turned to the Tekwar movies/series, which had human-like androids (derogatorily called “mechs”) working for the police. And does anyone remember Holmes and Yo-Yo?
