'Fringe' Producer in Talks for Futuristic Cop Drama for Fox

"Fringe" executive producer J.H. Wyman, pictured below, is finalizing talks for a new project for Fox that will team him once again with "Fringe" creator J.J. Abrams, an individual with knowledge of the impending deal told TheWrap.

The as-yet-untitled project, which will likely receive a pilot deal with a production commitment, is 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."
