With “Fringe” going away this autumn (and “Alcatraz” and “Terra Nova” long gone), how will Fox fill that primetime sci-fi vacuum?
Longtime “Fringe” producers J.J. Abrams and J.H. Wyman just got an order for a futuristic drama pilot about LAPD officers teaming with robot partners.
No word on whether or not the androids will look like the cop who chased down a tiny James Tiberius Kirk in Abrams’ “Star Trek.”
Wyman, who scripted the 2001 Brad Pitt-Julia Roberts movie "The Mexican" before he joined the writing staff of “Keen Eddie,” is writing the new pilot script.
