Awwww ish! Dick Wolf is reportedly developing a “New York Undercover” reboot for ABC.
Wolf’s agent and WME head of television Rick Rosen spilled the tea during a Q&A at the Paley Center on Tuesday.
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.
Universal Television, Dick Wolf and ABC declined to comment on the project – I guess because it’s too early for the chatter.
“New York Undercover” starred Malik Yoba, Michael DeLorenzo, Lauren Velez, Patti D’Arbanville and Josh Hopkins and was one of the dopest dramas on television between 1994-1998.
I was momentarily excited about a reboot until Rick Rosen said, “It’s a franchise you can redo that doesn’t necessarily have to have the same cast.”
