JJ Abrams has certainly had a pretty good end to the week. You might think he would be clearing up his schedule to focus on getting a galaxy far far away back onto the screen successfully but instead he has got orders for two pilots today.
Deadline are reporting that NBC have ordered a pilot for Believe, an Abrams and Alfonso Cuaron executively produced show. The show was originally penned by Cuaron and Mark Friedman and is:
about the unlikely relationship between a girl in possession of a great gift/powers — which will come into their own in seven years — and the man who is sprung from prison to protect her from those trying to hunt her down.
The pilot will be directed by Cuaron, so I imagine it is going to be quite a handsome first episode.
But on top of that, EW are reporting that Fox have asked for a pilot of an untitled sci-fi cop show. Abrams will executively produce with J.H Wyman and Bryan Burke.
That one 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
It looks like Abrams is going to have his fingers in many pies at once. Although, I wouldn’t expect this to hamper any quality on Star Wars. He has always been a bit of a multitasker, and both sound like great premises. Though hopefully they will both be more Fringe than Alcatraz.
