Fox has given pilot orders to dramas from J.J. Abrams and John Wells, TVGuide.com has learned.

An untitled project from Abrams' Bad Robot will reunite the just-named Star Wars: Episode VII director with Fringe's J.H. Wyman for an action-packed buddy cop show, set in the near future, when all LAPD officers are partnered with highly evolved human-like androids. Wyman will write and executive-produce alongside Abrams and Bryan Burk, while Kathy Lingg will co-executive-produce.

Boomerang focuses on the usual, everyday drama surrounding a family business — except this family is in the business of executing hits as assassins for the U.S. government. Davey Holmes will write and executive-produce alongside Wells and Andrew Stearn.

Are you glad to see the Fringe team partnering up again?
