Really old cop in FOX's New Amsterdam

by Adam Finley, posted Dec 13th 2006 2:01PM

FOXFOX has ordered a pilot for a new cop show with the working title of New Amsterdam. The new series is about a cop who, unbeknownst to everyone, is actually centuries old because he's cursed with immortality. I always thought that was the plot of Colombo, shows what I know. Allan Loeb and Christian Taylor wrote the pilot script, but beyond that not much is known about the series. I like to think the cop will spend most of the episodes lusting after septuagenarians who are way too young for him.

Also, it took me longer than I care to admit to piece together that "New York" used to be called "New Amsterdam," hence the immortal cop has been there a long time. I'm a bit slow at times, but I get there eventually.

Or "Life on Mars", but without the time travel/coma.

Or, "Angel" without Josh Whedon.

So it's basically "Forever Knight" minus all the goth.
