Netflix's 'Bright' Featurette Ward & Jakoby

Training Day Series On It's Way To CBS

THR is reporting Antoine Fuqua will direct the follow-up to his 2001 feature film of the same name.
TV's big remake push is showing no signs of slowing down.

In a competitive situation, CBS has handed out a hefty pilot-production commitment to a Training Day follow-up based on the 2001 film of the same name, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Based on the feature film from Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow Pictures, the potential series will take place 15 years after the movie. The planned Training Day series is set in the LAPD of 2015. (Ethan Hawke and Denzel Washington starred in the feature.)

Antoine Fuqua, who directed the feature film, will helm the pilot, which was written by feature writer and former LAPD detective Will Beall. Jerry Bruckheimer Television's Jerry Bruckheimer and Jonathan Littman will executive produce alongside Fuqua and Beall. The drama hails from Warner Bros. Television, where Bruckheimer is based, and Fuqua Films.

Training Day comes as feature films and intellectual property continues to be in high demand, as broadcast and cable networks look for proven brands in a bid to cut through an increasingly competitive landscape that currently boasts more than 400 scripted originals. Already in the works are TV series based on Rush Hour (CBS), Limitless (CBS), Uncle Buck (ABC) and Minority Report (Fox). Meanwhile, The CW is prepping series based on The Notebook and Friday the 13th this season, as the reboot trend continues into its second development season. Key to the remakes' success is having the original producers involved, as Training Day does.
