(Newser) – While a revival of NBC's The Office doesn't look likely, ABC is continuing the trend of TV reboots in bringing back cop drama NYPD Blue—at least for one episode. The network is producing a pilot for a revised version of the show, which ended its 12-season run in 2005, per the Hollywood Reporter. In this version, Detective Andy Sipowicz (played by Dennis Franz in the original series) has been murdered, leaving his son, Theo, to investigate. Deadline reports the project received approval from original co-creator Steven Bochco, whose widow has signed on as a producer. His son, Jesse Bochco, will serve as an executive producer and is also set to direct the pilot. (Bochco died in April with many credits to his name.)
