Forget zombies, gritty superheroes and dragons.
Thanks to HBO’s Westworld, Fox is banking the next big fad for television is artificial intelligence. And they’ve turned to Jessica Alba and Gotham‘s very own Ken Woodruff to make it happen.
Fox has made a script commitment to Girl 10, according to The Hollywood Reporter, featuring Elle, one of just 10 synthetic humans known to exist.
The world around Girl 10 isn’t painting the best picture of AIs. An underground group wants to weaponize the technology, all while Elle herself is a murder suspect. It would be Fox’s first attempt at artificial intelligence since the short-lived Almost Human back in 2014.
Woodruff has quickly worked his way up the ranks. Less then a decade ago he was penning scripts for the short-lived James Woods CBS series Shark before joining The Mentalist as a producer. However, he’s just started Season 3 of Gotham as executive producer, writing eight episodes of the popular Fox series along the way.
It will join other AI-themed shows that are populating the airwaves, The Hollywood Reporter says, including Westworld and a pilot order from Syfy based on the 2013 Caradog James sci-fi action film The Machine.
Fox hasn’t ordered a pilot just yet, waiting to see what kind of script Woodruff pulls together.
