JJ. Abrams is re-teaming with Alias producer Ken Olin for a new undercover cop drama for the CW, The Hollywood Reporter confirms.
Electropolis is a one-hour drama that focuses on the after-hours Los Angeles and the young people who live their lives after most are asleep. The name is seemingly inspired by the electronic music featured in the show.
Olin would direct and executive produce, along with Abrams and Bryan Burk. The project hails from Bad Robot and Warner Bros. TV.
Abrams’ previous ‘undercover-related’ series, Undercovers, was cancelled by NBC after one season and an all too late mythology kick. Electropolis sounds like a different kind of show, but we’ll keep an eye on any developments.
