This has potential.

Oblivion director Joseph Kosinski and Pacific Rim writer Travis Beacham are working together on a new futuristic sci-fi police drama for AMC called Ballistic City.

Word on the web is that AMC are looking at pairing it up with The Walking Dead when it eventually returns this October. As The Walking Dead is a ratings monster they must like the sound of Ballistic City. So what is it all about?

The show is being described as Blade Runner meets Battlestar Galactica and Chinatown is also being mentioned.

The series will follow “a former cop thrust into the criminal underworld of a city housed in a generational space ship destined for an unknown world.”

Sounds like it could be a winner, but it could also go drastically wrong. As AMC are keen on getting this one together I imagine we will be hearing more about it very soon.

Thanks to Andrew McGlinn for the heads up on this one.
