LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) – The future just got a whole lot better-looking.
Billed as an “action-packed buddy cop show,” the project is “set in the near future, when all LAPD officers are partnered with highly evolved human-like androids.”
Kelly will play Valerie Stahl, a uniformed cop with a strong moral compass who believes the best of people.
Brad Anderson (“The Machinist”) is directing the project, which comes from Abrams’ Bad Robot and Warner Bros. Television.
The cast also includes “Six Feet Under” actress Lili Taylor, who’ll play Maldonado, an ambitious and determined police captain who is willing to make sacrifices for the greater good.
