NBC has a new police drama in development. Deadline reports that the new project is a female-oriented drama from “Nurse Jackie” co-creator Liz Brixius, film and TV producer Debra Martin Chase and Universal TV.
“Written by Brixius, the ‘Untitled Police Women Project’ explores the personal and professional lives of four LAPD women officers who have been best friends since the police academy,” the story reports.
Brixius and Chase are executive producing. Universal TV is producing in association with Brixius’ Delong Lumber and Chase’s Martin Chase Productions.
“The broadcast networks have been looking to launch an ensemble drama series about female cops for the last few years,” Deadline notes. “Two such projects went to pilots, ABC’s 2015 ‘Broad Squad’ and CBS’ ‘Chiefs’ this past season.”
