New York Undercover is no longer under the cancellation reaper’s thumb.
The Dick Wolf cop drama, which survived four seasons on FOX from 1994 -1998 is being rebooted at ABC.
I hear ABC is in talks for a new incarnation of New York Undercover, which will be written by Hand of God creator Ben Watkins. The project from Wolf Entertainment is expected to be a co-production between Universal TV, where the company is based, and ABC Studios.
The reboot, which Wolf’s agent and WME head of television Rick Rosen cryptically mentioned Tuesday during a Paley Center panel, is written by Ben Watkins (Amazon’s Hand of God), with Wolf and his Universal Television-based Wolf Entertainment banner’s Arthur Forney and Peter Jankowski attached. The drama would be a co-production between Universal Television and ABC Studios. [..]
Rosen on Tuesday noted that multiple networks had entered a bidding war for the New York Undercover reboot before it landed at ABC. “It’s the type of franchise that you can redo, and you don’t necessarily have to use the same cast.”
Would you welcome this new iteration of New York Undercover onto your screens? Should it stay cancelled?
