ABC has put in development Rookie, a single-camera cop comedy from Will Gluck and Tosh.0 director Scott Zabielski. Written by Community co-executive producer Andy Bobrow and produced by Sony Pictures TV and Gluck’s studio-based Olive Bridge, Rookie centers on a twentysomething woman who tries to reinvent herself by becoming a cop, and finds a surrogate family amongst the disparate group of police she works with. Bobrow and Gluck executive produce, with Olive Bridge’s Richie Schwartz co-executive producing. Zabielski will serve as consulting producer. In addition to his Hollywood career, Zabielski, who has been tapped to helm New Line’s Police Academy remake, serves as a reserve police officer in West Hollywood. It’s been another strong selling season for Gluck and Olive Bridge, with multiple put pilot commitments and a 22-episode order from NBC for a comedy starring Michael J. Fox. UTA reps Gluck, Bobrow and Zabielski who is managed by Underground.
