Well? You read the headline. What should it be called, do you think? You do not need any more information. Or I guess the only other real piece of information that you need is that J.J. Abrams’ robot buddy cop show does not currently have a name. So everything you can think of is on the table. UGH OK well fine, here is some more information. From Deadline:

With Fringe heading into its final season, the series’ JJ Abrams and J.H. Wyman have set up a new futuristic drama at Fox.

In a competitive situation, the network has nabbed the untitled Warner Bros. TV/Bad Robot-produced project with a pilot production commitment. It is described as an action-packed buddy cop show, set in the near future, when all LAPD officers are partnered with highly evolved human-like androids.

ARE YOU HAPPY NOW? I’m not as big of a J.J. Abrams’ fan as you guys probably are, so you might have some better insight into show-naming, but here are my ideas:

  • Future Cop Budz 6.0
  • d0nUtz.
  • I’m Paired With A Ro-WHAT?
  • This Guy Again…
  • A.N.D.R.O.I.D

Those are all pretty good, right? I hope I guessed the right one! If you’re reading this J.J. Abrams, feel free to take one of those!!! Do you guys have any ideas, or did I steal them all?

  1. I, Robot. You, Jane.

    (Also, the human partner will be played by Tom Jane)

    • M. Night Shyamalan is consulting. The twist: It’s the robot that just wants his kids back, but he just thinks he has kids, because he has a ghosts memories, but he doesn’t have kids because he’s a robot. But he doesn’t know.

  2. I suppose Robo-Cop is out.

  3. Mac and C.H.E.E.S.E.


    • Here, let me at least do the theme song:

      BAD ROBOT!
      [dubstep part, and it's awful]
      he’s just a mothafuckin robot
      in the mothafuckin streets
      does lotsa robot things
      plus he’s a cop robot and it’s a bad idea for a show.
      BAD ROBOT: A Bad Robot Buddy Cop Show, featuring a not-robot too, I guess.

      I don’t even know where the theme song ended and the commentary began or even what the show is called anymore but I think it’s a reboot of Lost now, so, well. I’m sorry, again, really, there should be some kind of rule against me posting on these make-up-a-name-for-a-thing posts.
