Fox Gives Pilot Commitment to 'Fringe' Creator J.J. Abrams Deadline

Fox has given a pilot production commitment to "Fringe" creator J.J. Abrams and executive producer J.H. Wyman for a futuristic drama, reports Deadline.com.

In what was called a competitive situation, Fox won the project, described as an action-filled police drama that's set in the near future, with each human officer paired with human-like androids, the story says. Abrams, Bryan Burk and Wyman will executive produce, with Wyman also writing, the story notes.

The order comes as "Fringe" draws to a close on Fox.
