CBS is Developing a Supernatural Cop Drama Called FAR ROCKAWAY
CBS is developing an interesting new supernatural police drama called Far Rockaway. Alex Kurtzman (Star Trek: Discovery) is producing the series and it based on the Spanish format series titled Estoy Vivo. The show is being written by David Wilcox (Bull, Fringe, Legends) and this is what it’s about:
A workaholic NYPD detective killed in the line of duty is granted a second chance to return to earth in the body of another cop in order to bring his killer to justice and heal the fractured family he left behind.
I’m in! This sounds like a solid concept that will make for a good series. Although, there was a series that FOX produced a couple years ago called Second Chance, which centered on a murdered cop who was brought back to life in the body of a younger man. I don’t remember it being very good, so maybe this one will be better.
So far, there’s a decent creative who are working on bringing this story to life. It’s also good to see that Kurtzman will be involved with the development of shows other than Star Trek, which he is currently overseeing at CBS.
