APB: Something New
Imagine if Tony Stark took over a police precinct.
Once that terrifying thought is done processing, now imagine that his toys and tactics are on the way to taking over the police department of the entire city.
Do you want to create RoboCop? Because this is how you get RoboCop.
At which point, most people say “Yes, because RoboCop was cool.”
Seriously, this feels like someone saw the 90s show The District, and just threw in Tony Stark.
The executive producer is the same one from Lucifer (an interesting, odd little show) and the creator of Burn Notice, Matt Nix. Okay. Fine. They have my attention.
But “Inspired by true events” … huh. That makes no sense, but I’ll roll with it.
Pros: This looks like insane fun. With the guys from Lucifer, Burn Notice, and Ernie Hudson.
Cons: Too many possibilities to take this into Mary Sue territory … which they may have deflated in the last scene of the trailer, so who knows, there may be hope for this.
