Former The Chi showrunner Ayanna Floyd Davis is teaming with Dick Wolf on a reboot of his 1990s gritty Fox cop drama "described as re-examination of the original, reflecting the current times," per Deadline. "It is picking up 20 years after the end of the original series that changed the face of TV cop dramas." Floyd would serve as writer and showrunner. The original New York Undercover aired on Fox from 1994 to 1998, starring Malik Yoba and Michael DeLorenzo as undercover detectives. Wolf and Universal TV originally developed an updated take on New York Undercover during the 2018-19 broadcast development season for ABC, written by Ben Watkins, but the pilot was rejected. The potential Peacock reboot is "still in very early stages," reports Deadline, "and it is unclear yet whether it would feature characters from the original series."
