Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles producer Josh Friedman is teaming up with Homeland‘s Howard Gordon for a new science-fiction project focusing on robots.
The project is being developed for NBC, Deadline reports. The series takes place in a world much like ours, where human-looking robots are commonplace. After a routine homicide explodes into the first robot-on-human murder, the lead detective must solve the case and investigate a growing robot rebellion while dealing with the impact on his own fractured family.
Friedman will write the script with Gordon supervising.
