neXT and Adam & Eve - AI Thriller & Comedy Receive Pilot Orders from FOX



FOX has ordered pilots, neXT, an A.I. thriller and comedy, Adam & Eve, per Deadline.

neXT, an A.I., fact-based thriller drama hails from Manny Coto (24: Legacy co-creator, American Horror Story, 24), John Requa (This Is Us, Patriot) and Glenn Ficarra (This Is Us), and 20th Century Fox TV. Coto will pen the spec pilot with Requa and Ficarra set to direct.

neXt is a propulsive thriller set in the A.I. research world. It features a brilliant but paranoid former tech CEO who joins a Homeland Cybersecurity Agent and her team to stop the world's first artificial intelligence crisis: the emergence of a rogue AI with the ability to continuously improve itself. Marrying pulse-pounding action with a layered examination of how technology is invading our lives and transforming us in ways we don't yet understand, the series also presents us with a villain like we've never seen before, one whose greatest weapon against us is ourselves.

Adam & Eve, a single-camera comedy based on the French-Canadian series hails from Jon Beckerman (Ed, Late Show with David Letterman), Avanti Groupe and 20th Century Fox TV. Beckerman will pen the pilot.

Adam & Eve follows one couple at three stages of their relationship — young and passionate, middle-aged with kids, and navigating retirement. This is a comedy that asks the big questions: What makes a marriage last? Do people ever really change? And, after 40 years together, why can't we pick a place for dinner without it turning into a whole, you know, "thing?"
