 RoboCop prequel TV series that will detail the rise of Omni Consumer Products and the company’s Vice President, Dick Jones, is in early stages of development.

 

Talking to Movieholen.net, Ed Neumeier, scriptwriter of the original 1987 movie, revealed that he is working at MGM on the series. “It has all the cool stuff about RoboCop except no RoboCop,” he said.

 

“There’s the idea of doing things about business and law enforcement in the city of Detroit a minute-and-a-half in the future,” he explained. “It would be a way to do all sorts of stories about business and tech, Silicon Valley, corporations, snakes in suits, cops, all that. It’s a wonderful rich tapestry.”

Neumeier seems to suggest that the show doesn’t have a formal green light yet, stating that MGM still needs to find the right partners and produce a pilot episode. But, should everything go head, the show will follow “ the evolution of Richard Jones to Dick Jones, the story of OCP and how the world moves into the future, how the corporate world behaves.”

 

He also notes that people don’t necessarily start out as bad guys, suggesting Jones may not be quite the scumbag he was in the 1987 movie when played by Ronny Cox.

The last time we saw the city of Detroit under the thumb of Omni Consumer Products was in the RoboCop remake back in 2014, which we gave a 6.9 in our review back in the day. Hopefully, should this project come to fruition, it'll fare better than Joel Kinnaman's Alex Murphy.

Wouldn't that basically be a documentary?

I had a great idea for a prequel series, called ‘Amity Island’. It’s about a young, idealistic guy trying to get elected as the mayor of a small American seaside town and the opposition he faces from the soon-to-retire police chief. If it got commissioned, the last shot of the first season would be a long shot of the town from the sea. And then a fin breaks the water.

Episode 1 - An hour of Dick Jones updating his LinkedIn profile and blocking all the recruitment agencies that are pestering him.

 

Episode 2 - This meeting could have been an email

 

Episode 3 - WHO THE FUCK IS MICROWAVING FISH?????

I wonder if anyone’s pitched a ‘Colonial Marines’ series where we see how the USCM spend their time when not getting their arses kicked by xenomorphs - putting down militant miner revolts on Thedus and the like. I’d actually watch that.
