NYPD Blue co-creator Steven Bochco is developing another cop show, this time for the WB. Variety.com describes it as “a young-skewing hourlong cop/mystery show revolving around two Hollywood homicide detectives at the LAPD.” Bochco says the untitled project will be “a little lighter in tone. It’s not heavy-duty or long on procedural. It owes more to ‘Columbo’ than ‘CSI.’ “
Bochco wrote a pretty fair Hollywood mystery novel a couple of years ago (Death by Hollywood) but I’m wondering if what I liked most about NYPD Blue came from the (then) tortured mind of David Milch.
